Going Tubeless Without Protection?
Question: @ItsMartY asks in the Downhill Forum: Hey guys, I’m considering going tubeless. I need your advice. I got stock Alex rims on my bike but they’re tubeless-ready and pretty durable for me. I know that tubeless has no disadvantages but I don’t want to spend so much money on Cushcore or something like this. I like to ride jumps, brap berms and this stuff but I’m only 66kg, so I think it would be no problem, what do you think? Should I go for it without CushCore or no? I have front Assegai kevlar tubeless ready but my rear is DHR 2 Dh casing not tubeless-ready.
Question: @itay123 asks in the Downhill Forum: Hey guys, I’ve been biking for some time now but my area has a lack of real jumps. As such, whenever I go to bike parks I notice I tend to case most jumps at best, and far more often than I would like I feel my feet come off the pedals. Any advice on keeping them planted and getting a little further to clear the jumps?
NX or GX or?
Question: @RonB asks in the All Mountain, Enduro & Cross-Country Forum: Hi! Looking for some user feedback. I am currently riding a 2019 full susp with 1x NX drivetrain. No issues with it, but see a lot of good, bad and ugly being said about that line. Is the GX line that much better? Would I benefit from upgrading to GX, or should I consider going a step higher? I am NOT a basher, speed demon, or jumper…. just an old man that enjoys riding most everything and wants things to work good. Thanks for any assistance! Ron
Is a 58-degree head tube angle too slack?
Question: @Tripmo asks in the Downhill forum: Hello guys, I just finished my mullet setup on my bike. I used one of those phone apps to measure my headtube angle, it’s around 58.6ish. So roughly I have a 58-59 degree headtube angle. Is this too slack that can make my frame snap? Little worried.
