Strengths:    Opens wide enough that you don't have to adjust skewer to get bike in/out. Adjust once and it opens plenty for even MTB fork removal. Skewer is one haneded operations which is nice when you are supporting your bike. Clutch SD mounts directly to Nissan and Toyota factory truck bed rails.

Weaknesses:    Black paint fades pretty fast in sunlight.

Bottom Line:   
Hands down the best bike option for truck bed transportation. Works well with the 15mm and 20mm adapters as well.

Strengths:    Best fork mount I've ever used. Easy to adjust and close/open easily.

Weaknesses:    NONE

Bottom Line:   
This fork mount rack is amazing! The closure system beats the pants off any of the competitors I've used on my other trucks. If you have a Toyota, it mounts right too the factory rail system. You won't be disappointed.

So does VPP work with a clutch mech?

Afternoon guys, I was thinking of upgrading to a 10 speed, mainly for the Shimano Shadow+ clutch mech to stop that annoying chain rattle. I've started reading conflicting reports about the VPP chain growth and the tension clutch mechs put on the chain = loss of suspension plushness + clutch mech ... Read More »

i'm using the xt m770 series drivetrain (pre dyna-sys) now and am trying to piece together a new system. i'm out of the loop with all the technicalities so i'm sure this is a simple question for some. the new derailleurs feature a clutch, or release. ostensibly to eliminate all the chain slap ...

SRAM Type 2.1 rear!? Did they redo their clutch derailleur?

I was just messing around on the SRAM website looking for a manual. And I came across type 2.1 derailleur. There's a link to a brochure that gives me a blank page. Is this a new thing? Did they fix the Type 2 issues? Has this already been discussed. Who knows anything? -G [url] ... Read More »

RaceFace Narrow/Wide Chainring 1x9 setup. No clutch mech?

I'm planning to go to a 1x9 set up from a 2x9. I don't really use my small chainring (24 tooth) and my big ring (38 tooth) is just impractical for climbs. I am planning to go somewhere in between. I will be using a 32 or a 34 tooth RaceFace Narrow/Wide chainring for a 1x9 setup with no chain guide. ... Read More »

Reliable source for XT rear derailleur shadow clutch stabilizer

Like many (most?) others, my XT clutch stabilizer broke where the tension adjustment screw connects to the cam. My LBS had a repair kit in stock but didn't have many. I've been looking online to order a couple spares (sad that I have to treat this like a wear item...) but haven't found any relia ... Read More »
