All the sweet bikes and parts. Mmm … parts.
I bought Dialed ebook from your website and have now got my RAD to + 1mm (was +51mm) , My RAAD is at 57.5 degrees (was 62) and my SHO is +10mm
Had to purchase some new bars and use a different stem that I already had so pleased I got pretty much there – now need to go and ride some decent trails to see how it feels and get used to the difference (its quite a bit) but one thing now is that my Shifter or Dropper lever will now impact the top tube if the bars rotate in an off (they didn’t hit before) – is this something you come across often and any idea on protecting the top tube other that wrapping some suitable tape/rubber/foam ?
Today The Wife and I rode 15-20 miles of bike paths and roads on Specialized Turbo Vado 6.0s.
I like bikes, and that includes ebikes. I’ve been trying to get a feel for how they differ from acoustic bikes — and how they differ from each other. The latest loaner is the Specialized Turbo Kenevo Expert
Last week I rode the 2019 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Pro Carbon 29 in Moab, UT.
I don’t know if you answer these kinds of questions but I thought I’ll give it a try. Feel free to deny to answer ;-).
As mentioned above I’ll be getting a new bike and I actually ordered a 130mm trail bike. I’ve been a bit insecure lately if I did the right choice or if I should try to change my order to a 150mm bike which is a bit more towards Enduro (I rather have only 1 bike than 2).
I don’t want to be one of those quys who is overbiked, on the other hand I don’t want to risk damage of the bike because I’m doing stuff which the bike can’t take.
The skill level I’m hoping to achieve:
- Good flow on trails with berms etc.
- Being able to go down technical terrain with some “blocked” passages safely (I don’t want to go down fast)
- Doing drops of maybe 1m
- Jumps: clearing tables of maybe 2m safely. Not sure if I have the balls for attempting gaps.
- Pump Track. With increasing skill, I’d love to include some jumps.
As most of my biking is without shuttles and more like tours rather than bike parks I opted for a nice, light high-end trail bike, but as said, I’m not sure if it would take the above mentioned loads.I’m about 74kg of weight. What does your experience say?
I’m looking at a Canyon Neuron (130mm rear/130mm front) and a Canyon Spectral (140/150mm).
I’ve been riding this bike for 16 months, and I’ve grown to love it. Let me count the ways …
I have a Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er from 2014. I really like this bike BUT I know the the newer bikes of the same type changed quite a bit in terms of the geometry. They have shorter chainstays and a slacker head angle for example. What are your thoughts about this? I don’t have a lot of money to spend for a new bike but I’m asking myself whether I would improve my riding with a longer and slacker geometry.
Hopefully you can help me quickly with some insights.
Thanks a lot and kind regards,
