    I wonder if we can buy those single toptube cable clips for our HD's? I only run one cable on the toptube like Lopes.

    I think it looks slightly self modified rather than custom made.. But agreed - would like to have one of those!

    This was my favorite part:

    "Kenda Nevegal tires, 2.35 up front and 2.1 rear. -Dan Severson"

    .....because of all the fools claiming these tires don't work when it is they who don't.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Pros ride the companies that sponsor them. That doesn't mean that there aren't significantly better tires than Nevegals out there. Lopes also rides Novatec alloy wheels.

    Most hardware stores will have these "P clamps" that you can buy. Lenz uses the same.

    I concur. I've done it to mine- fine hacksaw blade, file and sand smooth and round. Don't breathe in any of that! I'd also recommend removing it from your frame before you go about it.

    Yep shes been on that colour combo for awhile, reckon it must be her custom setup, sick!

    Nice vid find too, I like Brian's setup shock fork, except weird bar stem man looks flat almost like the grips ends point sweep back down, noticed this on his other bikes, obviously he likes it. Good to see the Vector air on there, love that shock.

    I was wondering about that. It doesn't come in a 200x51, correct? So he's likely riding that as a 150mm bike with a 215x63? It looks too long to be a 200x57.

    Yeah, normally Im a low stack sort of guy, but on the HD anyways when I experimented I found a higher stack suited the bike for my style better.

    Much better weighting on the front wheel, better climbing [weird I know]
    Much better jumping control and confidence, something I don't normally lack especially the bike I was coming off.

    Just better in every respect, no downsides, so its got me perturbed, I notice he really has to get his body down low on fast descents, again not sure if this is his style of late, or its sizing related.

    Mine could be because I run a large frame, though not big, good fit for me though.
    I'm 5'11"
    40mm stem, 760 bars
    currently bike is in 140 chip/150 fork mode.

    So this might well change when in 160mode.

    Will be interesting, I found Fabian's veiw on this fascinating, he is of the higher stack short stem wide bar theory after numerous tests developing the zero stem idea for Mondraker.

    He now rides a 50mm 10deg rise Renthal Duo stem/Fat bar combo, high rise bar too, with quite a bit of stack under the stem.

    Canyon frame is probably shorter reach than his Foxy was, but interesting, Sam Hill does a similar thing has for many years, while everyone else went low, he went high haha.

    I see AC is running a Havoc stem which I think is only available in 40mm wonder if its 35mm dia, seems like pretty flat bar rise as well, but a spacer under that booty stem!

    Dig this ****

    Def running a 140mm Sweep up front, he says it in the slode above, not sure if that means hes running 130 rear presume it does.

    Did you mean 200x57

    Right, it appears that the smallest size the Vector comes in is a 200x57 = 7.875"x2.25". The HDR 650b comes with a 7.875x2.0, stock. So, if he isn't running a longer shock (which wouldn't make sense handling-wise, especially with a 140 ip front), he's either using the longer stroke with a bottom-out spacer or he's using a longer stroke and getting more than 130mm of travel. I'm personally interested in which it is.
