    Edge 500 review

    Thanks for the prodding, I have read many reviews here but not written. So, here is the 1st of many.
    I guess I can't post a link since I don't have ten posts. Anyway, I wrote a review of the Garmin Edge 500. My most recent bike toy.

    My review of Dumonde Tech Original chain lube.

    Can a brother get some pos rep? Apparently my debonair avatar and witty caption haven't produced the flood of PM's from the ladies like I was hoping. After careful reflection I believe the problem is the size of my rep.

    Wow, the first and only review of Dumonde Tech chain lube? I thought it was more well known, with how many people are raving over it. Guess no one bothered to try and make a "proper" mtbr review for it.

    I thought it was kind of tough to do a review on a chain lube. It's one of those subjects/product categories that often devolves into an almost religious debate. I tried to be factual, provide "measurements", and compare/contrast with other products. I always like to read how a product compares with other competing products - especially when those other products are highly respected and/or familiar to most readers. Otherwise the review just becomes "I love it, it's awesome, run out and buy it already" which does little to inform the reader.

    Can't give you any more reps to increase your mojo! You're preaching the same stuff that I did a few posts up, to the point it sounds like you're sucking up, but even if it is, I welcome it and your review really is helpful.

    I probably would've used the same details and comparison to review it if I wrote a review for it. I used to carry a bottle of ProLink with me, since it wore out so fast, especially if it got a little wet, or I rode through puddles or streams. I loved how clean it was though, but needing to reapply it so often was enough to make me look for alternatives when I had to rebuy. Glad Dumonde offers a lube that has similar cleanliness, but actually lasts more than 1-2 rides. Wasn't about to resort to some other lube that made my entire drivetrain black. Probably wouldn't consider it that expensive, since I'm not a fan of degreasing; if a chain lube saves me well over 1 hour of my time of such hassle and saves me time used on relubing, I consider it worth that extra cost, considering the value of my free time.

    When I posted, I just jumped to the last page and put it out there. Now that I paged back and read your posts, I see what you mean. I hope you're not too hurt that I wasn't sucking up.

    I haven't reviewed anything here in years because most reviews were either pissing contests or "It's totally awesome". Since the review section was "remodeled" I haven't really done my duty to post reviews. I'd like to change that going forward.

    As far as lube goes, yeah, you know what I'm talking about with the ProLink based on your description. The Dumonde Original, in my opinion, does everything ProLink does but does it much better and without any negative side-effects ... other than a slightly steeper price depending where you buy it. I briefly looked at the Dumonde Lite version at the same store but immediately steered away from it because I could tell just by looking at the consistency of the fluid in the bottle that it was very "thin" and reminded me of ProLink.

    I didn't want to fill my review with conjecture, but I suspect the reason ProLink is so much "thinner" and doesn't last very long is that the percentage of solvents per unit volume is very high. WD-40 is the same way only more so - very high on solvents and quite low on lubricant - but there is lubricant in it and it does work as a lubricant ... for a very, very short period of time. ProLink just seems to be more on the WD-40 end of the chain lube spectrum. I think that's also the reason why ProLink smells way stronger than Dumonde - it's the amount of solvents per unit volume. The Dumonde is definitely "oil-based" and contains solvent. There is a warning on the side about using it near open flames which is always the give-away. The strange part is, it seems every bit as clean as the ProLink if not more so. Part of the reason might be that with the Dumonde, a drop is more viscous and therefore easier to see, meter, and dispense. ProLink is so thin it's often times hard to see if you got zero, one, or a bunch of drops on each link. That will lead to over-lubing which then runs across the plates and drips down. Dumonde has never "splattered" for me when spinning the chain after application - and ProLink, no matter how thin/careful/sparingly I apply it will always splatter and drip when back pedaling the chain. That's probably what leads to more dust/dirt attraction and therefore a bigger hassle when cleaning up.

    Anyhow, if you haven't given the Dumonde Original a try and you're getting low on your chain lube of choice, try it out for your next bottle. See what you think and then post up a review in the review section.

    Wrote a review for the Truvativ Aka cranks. Not the most insightful review because what's to say? They work great. No issues. I love that I can use MRP bling rings and put them on an inexpensive crank. I saw them on sale so cheap recently, it was almost worth buying a set to replace mine whenever the bb wears out. I've only been using them for 6 months, but if they hold up as well as they have so far, I think they're a steal.

    Added a second review for a Husker Du tire. Again, a simple glowing review. Two mediocre written reviews ought to be worth some rep.

    My review of Fox Fork 32 float 29

    Sorry up front this may be the wrong forum for this post which is more of a question than a review. As this is my first post ever on this sight I am unable to post a new thread until I have 5 posts which is a bit of a catch 22 situation.

    I bought a 2013 Scott Scale 910 nearly 8wks ago. It is an awesome bike but.........
    The lock out on the Fox Fork 32 Float 29 has failed 3 times. The first time it happened was on the first ride. It went back to the LBS and a week later I had a whole new bike, nice I thought.
    The next lasted 10 to 12hrs before the lock out failed. I took it back to the LBS who rang Fox who said it would be a 4 day turn around to have the problem fixed. Two weeks later it was not back so the LBS put on another new set they had in the shop, good on them I thought. This was the day before a race. I went for a warm up ride and they failed (the lock out) after approx 300m yes you read right. With no time left to change before race I simply pumped more air into them to make up for no lock out. Anyway I digress. I am still waiting for the second set to come back or a forth new set.
    Is anyone else experiencing these problems?
    When pushed the LBS said Fox had admitted to them a problem with the lockout on these forks!

    2013 Fox

    That does sound frustrating.

    I was under the impression that 2013 Fox forks were all CTD damper equipped, meaning that they no longer have a lock-out, just a very strong "Climb" compression adjustment tune that eliminates sag. This was my experience when I test rode a Giant XTC a few weeks ago. After a few rides, I got used to it, but I still prefer the original setting.

    Good luck with your forks.
    Ego maniacs please object to my posts.
