Ohlins air shock for a YT Izzo for the BC bike race?
Question: @Yet1man asks via PB Mail: I’m looking at the possibility of changing the rear shock on my YT Izzo to the Ohlins TTX air. How do you find it performs on the Izzo?
I’m not looking at turning the Izzo into a mini Enduro rig, just looking at upping its range of usability slightly. One other reason for changing the rear shock is I’d like to ditch the grip shift lockout. I’m looking at using this bike for the BC Bike Race next year, so need to retain its eagerness to climb, but need the bike to be burly enough to ride Squamish, Vancouver’s North Shore, etc.
SRAM AXS clutch issues?
Question: @Mikelb01 asks in PB messages:
Have you ever had an issue with Sram AXS rear derailleurs and the clutch for the cage not being strong enough and the bike having a lot of chain slap? I’ve had a few of these rear derailleurs now and after a short few months of riding the rear derailleur’s clutch mechanism seems to lose tension
Does the mounting position of the caliper around the axle matter?
Question: Guillaume asks via email: Does the angular position of the caliper around the axle matter? Sure it matters if it’s placed on the chainstay or seatstay, but does the angular position around the axle matter if it’s placed on the same frame member?
Some say yes, some no. Those that say yes think that it’s placed in front of the axle to push the wheel down and that if it were placed behind the axle it would push the wheel up, as in this explanation.
Code RSC dial stuck?
Question: Gene158 asks in the All Mountain, Enduro & Cross-Country forum: I installed new Code RSC brakes on my Meta TR about a month ago. I followed the bleeding procedure correctly and the brakes were working great. About a week ago however, the contact point adjuster dial on the rear brake lever stopped working. I didn’t crash or hit it on anything, but the dial just won’t spin in either direction now. I’m not sure what the issue could be. Has anyone else encountered this issue?
