The I9 hub is very nice, not only aesthetically but performance wise too. I rode a set of I9 hubs with their straight pull spokes laced to 823s for two seasons on my V-10. The engagement is unreal, and while others complain about excessive drag, I found that after a short break in period they roll just as good if not better than other high end hubs. Maintaining them is relatively easy and was done twice a season which took no longer than 20 minutes. At the end of the two seasons they only suffered from one broken pawl, a few nicks out of a few spokes, and some bearing play (bearing adjuster was maxed out).
Thanks for the reply. I was concerned about the gps using data. I’ll have to look into the app and see how it goes. The signal up on the mountain where I trail ride is hit or miss.
Schwim – does that app eat up your data or is it cellular? Just got an iPhone myself a month or so ago.
As for the Singletracks app, I would use it if I had the choice of using the full site with it."maddslacker" wrote
[quote="comacruz":28504qu7]Keep in mind that reducing the travel will also change the geometry of your bike.
Changing the geometry is in fact the goal here. 😃[/quote:28504qu7]
Sounded like he just wanted his bar at a lower height and didn’t want to change the HA, BB height, etc…
OP – hope it all works out for you.
Yes, your a2c will change by whatever you reduce the travel by. The spring rate will also be affected so you will have to add a few more psi to achieve the correct sag (according to the Fox link below). Keep in mind that reducing the travel will also change the geometry of your bike.
Take a look at the link below. Go to Forks, 32mm, 32 Float 29, and take a peek at the suggested air spring settings for the various travel heights.October 23, 2011 at 05:52 in reply to: PICS of your DH specific rigs or just your DH MTB’s #76833
Dakine has reworked their Ventilator glove for 2012 and added 3mm thick palm padding. These might be what you’re looking for. When my wife started riding DH she was worried about the lack of padding in her gloves as well and settled on a well fitted pair of women’s Fox Dirtpaw gloves. They have served her well for the past few seasons. For myself, I’ve enjoyed Fox’s 360 Vortex and Troy Lee’s GP glove this season."dozzerboy" wrote
How do you like the Crankbrothers wheels? Doing a build of my own.
They have been on my Nomad for 2.5 seasons now. They are a stiff wheel with very decent engagement and hold their trueness very well. No problems with the bearings or rear hub (as others have had in the past with their Cobalt model). Only damage so far are 2 smallish dents in the rear rim (even with the dents I’m still having no problem running tubeless) and one broken spoke after my hanger broken and my mech went into the spokes.
