Granted this is for doing Fox stuff, I'm not sure about RockShock

For a rockshox lower service you only need new foam rings, oil & sram butter. Thats for the 50hr service. The 200hr requires a seal kit etc with new orings and wipers but its still not very much in terms of cost and the only specalized tool you need is internal c-clip pliers to get into the airspring.

Servicing a charger damper looks pretty complex however and thats probably something I'll still end up paying a shop to do when its time.

the fox recirculating fork dampers are pretty easy to service, the shocks with the nitrogen charge or needing a proper vacuum bleed are a pain to do at home.

I don't think that it's the caliper that's resin pad only, it's the rotor's that are marked as "recommended".

however if you keep looking down the sheet there is:

Recommended disc brake rotor SM-RT54* SM-RT56* SM-RT64 SM-RT66


Thereís my problem. I have the RT66 so will be fine. Thanks.

Oh, here's something I found in a bike tech talk about rotors and such:

Shimano posted:

One thing to note is that we do make some rotors that only work with resin pads. They are entry-level rotors that skip the heat treating step in manufacturing. If you used metal pads with them you would destroy them fairly quickly and make a lot of noise while doing it. These are typically used on bikes with brakes that can only take resin pads anyway, so itís a great way to save some money for those riders.

The calipers themselves seem to be compatible with metal pads but the rotors probably have the above applicable to them

I had kinda written all mtb-suspension-related service as something I didn't want to gently caress with learning.
What's the cutoff of easy vs. not worth?

Generally damper service/full rebuilds are kinda a pain and I plan to leave to the shop. So for my RockShox shock I did the 50 hour service. For my fork, I did lowers and regreased the air spring. There are some parts to buy but you save so much by not going into the shop.

Yeah absolutely. I did a lowers service for the first time recently and it was pretty easy. I'm currently in the process of putting new tubless tires on for the first time and a longer dropper. My bike is spending more time in pieces at the moment than together

So after moving to the mountains in 2019, I decided it was time to replace my one-size-tries-to-fit-all 5010 with more bikes. I ordered a DV9 and a Ripmo middle of 2020 summer, got the DV9 in time to enjoy fall riding and sell the 5010 then, but got the Ripmo in February, right in the middle of ski season. I've taken the travel restrictions seriously, so wasn't really able to ride the Ripmo until I got my first COVID vaccine appointment which was only available on the other side of the county, at a lower elevation without snow. Took the opportunity to ride some trails down there (Grass Valley, CA) that I'd never done before, but had heard good things about. Fast, smooth, flowy.

First time down there took it easy as it was my first ride on the Ripmo, first ride period after like 5 months of winter, and I'd just had a vaccine shot.

Since then, things have started to thaw out around home, but just barely; my favorite quick loop trail near home is one of the only things clear but I've lapped it a good 20 or so times this month, and have made some serious improvements already on the new bike and with all that practice with the gap jumps on the trail, and just riding much smoother through the turns. Loving it, and the bike.

This past week, I went down to Grass Valley again for my second shot, planning to hit the same trails again, and brought my DV9 along as well to lend to forums poster e.pilot who was in the area as well.

I've been super pleased with the gopro hero 9 I got this winter; I don't usually take it out and still feel a bit silly wearing it biking/skiing, but unlike cameras I've had in the past it is good enough that I don't have to futz with it too much to get footage that I think is pretty good, as I have pretty much zero interest in going in the deep end of video editing.

For those interested in checking out riding in the sierras and foothills, here's Hoot trail in Grass Valley, one of the two we did on that ride:

If it weren't for the middrive motor, I wonder if you could fit a tandem crank, mount a rotor in the NDS side, and then install a third brake to lock the crank angle. Hell, you still could if the motor used a common spindle standard and could sacrifice some Q factor.

It wonít ever get stronger. The doctors had to sever my right L3 and L4 periphery nerves at the base of the spine. So there isnít a nerve to fire the muscles those nerves used to feed and therefore no way to make those muscles grow. Like I can learn to cheat things and maybe some of the nerves that still work can remap to cover other things but itís been 12 years my quad is never magically coming back to even 20% strength.

Medically speaking I shouldnít be able to walk unassisted. But I can. There are lots of things that I shouldnít be able to do but I can. My neurosurgeon is still flipping his poo poo that I can even ride an E-bike up hills for any sort of distance. Iím well into unknown territory and most doctors and therapists are pretty honest that all I can do is keep trying poo poo and seeing if it works, and most agree that the more opinions I can get the better. You never know when someone will think of something that works.

The guy who owns my local shop has worked with other people with severe disabilities, itís why I went with his shop, but he is also the first to say that itís all experimentation. Iíve spoken with a couple other shops, with people at Whistlers adaptive sports program, and Iíve even ran down a guy I saw riding a road bike with one leg.

This thread is just another knowledge base, but itís full of smart people and you never know when someone will say something that might help.

So I do appreciate everyoneís thoughts and advice.

Edit: and my left leg is loving strong, more than enough to hold me up and brace myself. Itís basically worked as two legs for 12 years. I can easily support myself on just the left leg, I just donít want to break my loving foot because the crank is at 6 and my foot is inches off the ground. And I just need my right foot and leg not flying off into gently caress-off land every time I hit a serious bump.

How important is backpedaling/ratcheting to you? If you could do without, a one way/sprag clutch on the main crank might work. Thereís probably already one in the motor assembly, maybe thereís space for another if you could get a manufacturer or skilled fabricator to spend some time on it.

Most of those mid drive units are square taper on both sides so mounting a rotor or a fabricated metal disc the same width to the NDS is as easy as buying a super cheap 1x crank from some place like Damco bolting the disc to it and throwing it on the NDS.

If the third brake lever had a parking lock like you find on adult trikes and jogging strollers you'd be set.

The only real challenge would be mounting the caliper.

I'm not sure if you could easily get enough clearance between the caliper and the back of the crank arm.

Mounting probably wouldn't be too bad on a hardtail, but with the full suspension, would make more sense to go off the seat tube, if weren't for the shock:

Maybe use long bolts on the two front holes securing the motor, and mounting some sort of adapter plate on the outside?

And apparently the fancier ebike spindle standard is... ISIS.

I have a friend with Muscular dystrophy which has been pretty severe most of his life - He managed things just fine - does a lot of running and climbing - but its quite hard when it comes to communicating certain movements for climbing techniques. I think a few of us probably dont quite understand how this sort of how muscle weakness works and how it might affect ergonomics in a bike.

If you have a weakness in one leg and have one leg in front of the other(3 and 9 oclock) then its going to be quite hard to 'git gud' past the issue.
I think you'll find the strong leg being bent and loaded a lot which will be tough to maintain - a lot of mountain biking on tough terrain is about conserving energy and not burning out quickly. Having the pedals at 12 and 6 will result in a seesaw effect and wont feel stable.

Someone mentioned something about stunt pegs in the centre of bottom bracket position - i think thats a great place to start thinking about things. That way you can keep your legs inline with each other and can adopt a heels down/straighter leg attack position. What about a system where you pedal to the top of a hill or trail and then put in stunt pegs for the descent? You could also see if there is a way to mod the bike so you can get pedal assist without pedalling(if thats possible).

Just some ideas - hope it helps.


BTW - does anyone have opinions on Assegai comared to minion DHF as a front tyre (on an enduro bike)- currently running minion DD WT 2.5 and the side knobbys are on the way out, so im thinking of replacing it. Ive been quite happy the past 3 years running minion DHF/DHR2 combo, but amlooking for options or other recomanded combos worth considering. Conditions i ride in are mixed(dry, wet, mud, rock, roots) so i dont think the maxxis semi slick options will be useful.

I worry about disabling backpedaling because I backpedal to avoid roots and rocks. A concern with the brake based solution is that it must not restrict the ability to grab the actual brake at the same time. The pegs sound good because theyíd keep your weight and balance centered over the BB, something a 3 or 9 pedal position does not allow but obviously you canít pedal while they are in. Now I am imagining special cranks that somehow allow the pedal to lock at either the BB or the end of the crank that can be somehow switched between those positions while riding.

No help from me on solutions but it's badass that you're still at it despite what you've been through. I may be in store for a fusion later myself (herniated disc and 1 surgery so far but it's not going to get better with age) so this is a bit scary but also promising. Did they intend to cut that nerve or was it collateral damage? Honestly I haven't looked into the procedure much. Is your range of motion noticeably reduced?

Again thanks for all the replies. All of this is still a ways off but Iíll definitely be talking with shops about some ideas and let people know how it goes.

And yeah most of this is just living in the North Shore surrounded by amazing trails and wanting to push myself as far as I can. Worst case I can still ride access, gravel trails, and some super beginner kid style trails, all of which I would never have dreamed even a few years ago. If thatís all I can do Iíll still be happy as hell.

But I wonít lie every time I come past a cool downhill trail I spend five minutes (or more likely a few hours at work during the week) trying to figure out ways I can eventually get down it.

And pegs. Yeah pegs might be the simple solution, especially on a downhill trial if I donít need to peddle.

Did they intend to cut that nerve or was it collateral damage? Honestly I haven't looked into the procedure much. Is your range of motion noticeably reduced?

I had a massive spinal tumour that was right up against the spine at L2 and L3. . They had to cut my nerves to get the tumor out, and to do that they had to shave away the bone on my spine. It had also pushed some of the other nerves out of alignment so they ended up reseating them but in the end I have a five level fusion (L2 to S1). It was just one part of a multi day procedure to get the thing out of me in one piece.

So basically donít let my story scare you. Even on me the fusion itself is the least problematic issue, and from my understanding the range of motion issues is basically compounded as you fuse multiple vertebrae. I know people with one lever or two level fusions and they can do just about everything they did before. Often better as they are in less pain.

I wonít lie and say a fusion is a breeze but from people I know who had disc issues their response to a fusion is usually ďI wish I got this years agoĒ.

Finished my day of bike nerding in the garage. Got my Maxxis Aesagai DHR combo on to replace the Goodyear Newton ST I've had for the last year that are totally worn out. Looking forward to seeing what actually having center tread feels like again.



I also put my new 180mm oneup dropper in to replace the 100mm KS that was stock on the bike. Its pretty awesome that with the oneup you can have a huge amount more extension for the same or less insertion depth. Now I can get the seat down as far as it possibly can go. I ended up shimming it down 10mm to 170mm which feels perfect. Its also so much faster than the KS as well which probably just needed a full overhaul but i'm happy.



Side by side with the KS lined up at the collar. Much more pop in the drop.
