  • The amount that Yokozuna Reaction costs would get you some better, Deore MTB hydraulics

  • Do they have the red disc on the Deore calipers?

  • Like, that will give me some radavist point if there's a little red circular disc on the brake.

  • I never understood the compression-less or Kevlar thing to be honest. Just fucking pull the fucking fucker. I love me BB5/7's. Set them up right and they'll endo you till the end of days no matter what bloody outer or inner you have.

  • I never understood the compression-less or Kevlar thing to be honest.

    Understood, or tried?

  • Tried with multiple kinds of compression-less, yet failed to see the day/night difference, or the cost premium. It just never made a difference in feel, just bite, which is easy to circumvent on normal housing. Just fucking yank harder.
    I feel that initial set-up is more important.

  • How are you finding the extraterrestrials?

  • To be fair, you’re 100% right, there is no need for it (like on road bike with rims brake callipers), the low compression housing are perfectly fine and add a degree of modulation.

    I prefer the compression-less because I want to ensure less travel for the same pull, keep a decent gap between moving pads and rotors, and just adjust the barrier adjuster when the moving pads is worn.

  • How are you finding the extraterrestrials?

    Like a very expensive marathon supreme, haven’t ridden it off road proper (will need to drop pressure to 10psi for that).

  • How you liking the bootzipper so far? Thinking of getting rid of my tank as it’s fucking my knee and Achilles despite constant adjustment. Liking the geo on the on one

  • I still love it, it’s heavier than a standard MTB (I put a 11-46t cassette on it) but I really enjoyed the modern MTB geometry on a rigid bike.
    After ridden a modern MTB, it’s hard to get back to a traditional MTB which felt like a hybrid bike that out of its elements.

    Main reason why I chosen the Bootzipper;
