    New brands, old ones going bust

    The shimanos still going so far almost 1000kms on mine. I have a buddy with a 2020 turbo levo and hes on his 3rd motor and he doesnt even use it much. I think its all relative, some people have problems with shimano, bosch, brose they all have issues. Some of the issues are definitely user...

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    Got a front flat today, pressures around 32psi. Dh casing in front. Might have to set it up tubeless, was definitely smashing through some nasty rock gardens and compressions today. Did around 1300 meters climbing, all black, double black dh. Took us around 2hrs with breaks.

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    Yeah ive tried the Maxx terras as well. They still get torn up pretty quick. On my old Enduro they still got ripped up quick but I rode less so they lasted longer. It's prob cuz I'm riding more than I ever normally do now. I think im averaging 4000 meters of descending per week at the moment.

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    Yeah I guess it's just par for the course. We'll worth a couple extra tires to have a motor 😅

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    Yeah I thought about that too just hammering up trails is wearing it more as well.

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    Lol Actually you would probably get razzed for brake dragging on these trails the builders don't like that. I've seen plenty of riders do that because there not ready for that type of trail. Drifting into stuff is pretty common though so I'm sure that wears them out faster

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    Yep all I'm doing is high speed double black canadian steep laps at cypress lol. Just annihilates tires. I've tried max Terra and Maxx grip they both wear just as fast. I think if I was doing more chill trails it would last most the year.

    Do you go through a lot if rear tires?

    I've noticed I burn through tires faster on the ebike. Also probably because I'm riding a lot more in shorter periods of time and a lot of fast steep trails. Pretty much after 2 months the rear tire was getting fairly ragged.

    Lots of Rough miles and Hands "aching"

    You can ride a very wide range of bar widths but if its too wide you will notice nagging should issues over the long term and it puts you in a weaker position. We used to ride 580mm handlebars for freeriding and no one even thought about bar width, we were more hoping the bar was thick enough so...

    New bike, noisy motor. Service or ignore?

    gasgas eh, did you get yours from one of the moto shops? I got a good deal on a norco range last summer from one moto shop.

    New bike, noisy motor. Service or ignore?

    thats the run out on the motor. for example shimano in trail or boost can have a 1 second run out where it keeps pushing you. I think its 1 second anyway it might be more

    That'll buff out.....

    lol thats funny. Yeah people blow up carbon wheels here though too, they explode or crack. I think it depends on the brand. Most of us my riding buddys use alloys here except for a few that use the Weareone strife carbons which are very strong, havent seen anyone wreck those.
