- Trickstuff, err, stuff.
Already paid for…
Depending on how long I take to get back on the bike (currently in hospital with 2 ruddy great holes in my foot) i might well do that, but as thats going to be around xmas time (i reckon) anyway, i might just suck it up and wait for dry trails in the spring.
Or pilfer some from another bike, but faff…
fox DPX2/36 factory Grip2 180mm
SC reserve30mm rims on King hubs (IF i can make the 135×10 axle into a 135×12. dunno what if not though)
150, maybe 170 if it will fit, reverb
Enve M7 bar/stem
intend seat clamp
saint clips or RF Altas flats depending on foot situation.
then carbon cranks for the GB once pinion get their act together and make some, and always on the hunt for a trigger shift option
essentially a greatest hits of companies whose kit I’ve used before and been really impressed by, plus shiny bitsPosted 11 months ago
I’m keeping my eye on the Maxima brake. It might be my first ever Kickstarter pledge if the price isn’t too astronomical. Sounds daft but I love the way the lever is braced against the bar. Such an obvious thing to do.
What we really need is for Hope to just make some brakes that are 100% more powerful. It can’t be that hard.Posted 9 months agomoonsaballoonSubscriber
Fair play that is going to be some bike ! I really like the look of those deviate frames and i like the idea of the pinion gearbox assuming at some point you can get a trigger shifter . Make sure you put up plenty of pics once you have the bits and start building it up .Posted 9 months agoraybanwombleMember
@raybanwomble looks like the maxima is going on Kickstarter in a few weeks, might be worth keeping an eye out…
Not sure I’m too bothered matey, by Trickstuffs own data, the only brake more powerful than my Code RSC’s are their brakes.
My Codes are crazy powerful now I’ve got a perfect bleed on them.
I may look at a set when they break.
For 990 euros I’d be expecting Brembo privateer style race support.Posted 9 months ago
I’m not out yet. I’m just wondering what I’d do with them. They’re total overkill for my current bike. The whole thing might spiral into a new DH build.

I’m pretty sure they do offer race support but maybe you have to be in Germany.Posted 9 months agoraybanwombleMember
Well, I don’t believe in the “too much brake” mantra – the more power the better for arm fatigue. A less fatigued rider is a safer rider. I don’t see why they shouldn’t go on a trail bike, especially as those batter you more on alpine descents than a DH bike does.Posted 9 months ago

Yeah I’m on the same page but I was in the Alps for a month this year riding nothing but downhill runs and I had less arm pump and less fatigue than ever before and that’s just with Hope E4’s. I’m certainly not a brake dragger. Especially when I’m just grinding through the slop in the Peak District.
The Maxima is perfectly suited to my imaginary G19 build that I’ve got going on. My main reservation is that I was going to have a break from bike nonsense and build a track car for 2019.Posted 9 months agotdogMember
I dunno why on earth you’d feel the need to pay that for them when you can pick up a set of TRP Quadiems or Hayes Dominions.
The cost of my G-Spec TRP Quads with braided hoses puts these Trickstuffs to shame.
Plus mine are full on Moto style/feel much like Brembo brakes as I know for motorcycles.
Anyway food for thought!Posted 9 months agovincienupSubscriber
After seeing them in a brake test where they remained unrated as they’d broken the brakeforce tester that was perfectly happy with Codes, Saints, V4’s etc I went looking at them a while ago. The not inconsiderable price stopped me faster than any brake but I do seem to recall the site was basically unusable on phone and even some laptop browsers.
I guess they figure their stuff is so good people will call them on the phone if it comes to it?Posted 9 months ago
TRP Quadiems are the most disappointing brake I’ve ever tried. Probably because they look and feel so good. I was convinced it was my next brake until I did a few Pleney runs on a mates DH bike.
Yeah, they look mint and I love the lever but power levels were very underwhelming.Posted 9 months ago
5 days left on the kickstarter campaign, 78.5% funded. It’s an all or nothing deal so if anyone is umming and ahhing, now is the time.
Added bonus of making Howsyourdad’s day if you see him out on the trails….Posted 7 months agobedmakerSubscriber
I was going to go for the set of brakes at £990, but for only another £1010 I’d get dinner and a days riding.
Why not eh – YOLO!
I’ve spent a fairly obscene amount on bikes over the past few years, but could always see the value in each purchase.Posted 7 months ago
These brakes are lovely, but I just can’t see any reason to buy them unless money is genuinely no object.
I like that some kerazy German is doing it though!arogersMember
Well, good enough for the eBaythertons I guess…
Fixed that for you!
I don’t understand why this is such a big deal. Pretty much every pro sells off gear when a sponsorship deal ends and often before. I was offered a YT Mob team bike last year. I’ve seen a world cup top ten rider flog 30 boxed sets of Oakleys out of the back of his van. Every few days there’s a pro with priced gear on their instagram. Why is it only the Athertons who get hate for it?Posted 6 months ago
