    Team Red Podium

    Hey Knolly Knation,

    I will upgrade my team red Podium soon with a titanium spring and a Race Face Sixc 2015 crank.

    Very nice, you beat me to the punch. I am just waiting on my wheels. Which spokes and nipples did you go with?

    I have Chris King ISO hubs, ZTR Flow Ex rims and DT comp spokes.

    My small yellow Podium is happy to meet its red brother :

    First ride with the red Podium today. I'm really unable to tell you if I prefer the DBcoil (on my new Podium) or the DBair (on my old Podium). Both are really good shocks.

    Which shock do you prefer : DBcoil or DBair?

    Bike looks sick, give the coil a chance one ride isn't enough to get used to it and have it tuned perfectly.

    I used Cane Creek base tunes on my DBcoil. I will try different settings to find the best one.

    The DBcoil is very plush and eats every rock and the DBAir is more lively.

    I love both these bikes dude, the podium is a work of art

    As for air over coil, I like coil. coil is ultra predictable when you understand how to set rebound rate given spring rate. air is more of a dark art. i prefer 1/2 a spring up from cane creeks calcs and slow the return rate (add some rebound) to reduce kick back. cane creek said 400, i got a 425 in-betweener from nukeproof.
