Strengths:    Looks great. Light weight. easy to ajust.

Weaknesses:    Noisey. Ajustment slippage.

Bottom Line:   
Started out great! Looked awsome on bike and was not a lead pipe in the weight department. Used for about 6 months on XC bike until I had to swap it out for something else..............For some reason I would ajust my saddle angle and after 2-4 rides it would always "slip" a little bit so it was nose up slightly. Not a lot but enough that I could tell when the bike felt "different". I began keeping track of it with a level and everytime it would "slipped back to the same location. Weird. The straw that made the camel go WTF?! was that it developed an anoying creeeking/clicking noise at the top end linkage. I tried cleaning, lubing, re-torqing (always used torque wrench to specs when ajusting), all to no avail. It just drove me nuts with the noise and re-ajusting.

What is weird is I have the less expensive original Evolve post (same basic design) on another bike that has been flawless. I put a Truvativ on the bike and it's been solid with no noises.

New cranks - Race Face Ride, Turbine or Sram X5?

For 170mm rear hub - Salsa Bucksaw build. Going 1x10 with 30T front chain ring, 11-36 out back. I like the Ride as it is $100 and only 30 grams heavier than the Turbine, but the Turbine comes in colors. Sram is what is spec'd by Salsa on the BS2. I will probably swap them out for some RF Next cr ... Read More »

Race Face Turbine Chainring 24T 64BCD Feedback

I currently have a 2x10 set up with an XT 38/26 crank. I am looking at different options to make the uphill slogs a little easier. One option is to switch the 26T with a Race Face Turbine 24T. It seems like it should be a direct swap and I'm not braking the 14 tooth spacing rule. Has anyone done thi ... Read More »

Race Face Turbine 2x10 120 BCD single speed chainring? Renthal?

Hello ya'll. I recently bought a RF turbine crankset for my Karate Monkey with the intention of converting it to a singlespeed crank. What a pain in the dick this has been. First, it's not 104 BCD like you'd think, it's 120 BCD which hardly anyone uses and neither the aftermarket, nor RF har ... Read More »
