  • The old wheelsets approach is one that has probably had its day I think.

    I’m assuming the world caught on, as all manner of DT hubbed crap is overpriced now.

    Obviously, boost requirement adds problems as boosted DTs aren’t really old enough yet for this approach…

  • I’ve been watching DT 350’s for a while now in preparation for a new build that seems to have been on hold for ever.

    I’d agree that r2 are probably the best one-stop shop for DT if you need hubs plus adapters plus freehubs but depending exactly what you want, Starbike May be worth a look too.

    So needs pace to clear itself (which is fair) but doesn’t struggle with the slip over wet muddy roots and rock?

  • Tbf, I’d go with the Vitus too. You’d spend the difference easily trying to get the Orange spec to the Vitus’ level. The Z2 is on another planet compared to the Sektor. It compares with high end Yaris, low end Lyriks and OE 36’s.

    Question about the Assegai. I liked the look until I spotted the ‘terrain guide’ on Maxxis that indicated it was a terrible choice for the UK mud.

    Is this actually not the case and Maxxis are underselling their tyre?

  • So, I’m trying to work out exactly what I need and the internet isn’t being anything like as helpful as it is for Rockshox stuff. This seems to be a general thing for Fox tbh.

    I *think* what I need for 140mm is 820-02-538.

    … or is it the Rhythm airshaft?

    Any advice welcomed… 😀
