Meg Bichard wins TransBC Enduro
Meg Bichard & Shockcraft
About a month ago we received some emails from an Enduro racer called Meg. She's from Nelson, she's a Vet (the animal kind) and she races the Enduro circuit worldwide! She needed a better bottom bracket solution for the testing conditions of the Enduro circuit. So Hell Yes, we'll be your Bottom Bracket sponsor Meg.
So right now you need to pull that bike out, pedal it around the driveway and see what needs done. Plan all your fixes now as the shops and service centres are going to get swamped.
These are currently in production and should be ready to ship in about a week. First production run is limited so place your pre-orders here.
The new Hexlock SL is a bolt in upgrade for the QR15 hexlock in your Manitou Magnum, Machete, Mattoc, Minute or Marvel. Simpler, lighter and more compact axle which is tensioned and removed with a single 6mm hex key.
Installation is straightforward but needs a torx driver (to remove the QR15 cap) and a pin spanner to install the captive bolt.
Available in 15 x 100 mm for normal 15 mm or 15 x 110 mm for the Boost spacing on Magnum and Machete plus sized forks.
Cold Weather Oils
Suspension fluid seems simple. It's slippery and it's used to control the forks speed, but from there it gets so technical so quickly that we're going to dedicate a whole newsletter to it as soon as I can get it all written.
All the Motorex tech specs are now on the Shockcraft website and soon we'll change how we refer to our (and OEM) suspension fluids. Instead of using the SAE oil weight rating (2.5wt, 5wt, 7.5wt, 10wt etc) which were measured a 100°C. We'll be using Centistokes (cSt) measured at 40°C, only keeping SAE weights as a secondary identifier.
For performance in the cold now, the best fluids we have found are Motorex (which is a big relief when you have hundreds of litres in stock). Motorex has pour points (where the oils turn to goo that won't pour from the bottle) which are almost 40°C lower than their competitors. Motorex 15 cSt (2.5wt) will still pour out the bottle at -67°C.
