What grease are you using for the pivots?Over here in North Van, I've been exclusively shredding my hard tail since we got saturated in November. Mostly sticking to the hardpack/rock armored trails, and usually when there are breaks in the rain. I'm in love with the thing, after dialing in so many parts/geo details over the summer.
RAF is in hibernation. Completely disassembled, currently refreshing all the pivots, with Diamond and Topaz service coming up soon. I'll probably grab a One Up 210 post before she's back together again. Damn NX parts have been a real pain periodically, since I bought the bike. I need to go buy a crank extractor ring and pre-load ring after work, since the extractor extracted itself trailside, and the preloader is a threaded device that appears to be made of soft cheese. A shame that I'll probably be dropping close to $40 just to keep a functional, yet shitty, pair of cranks going.
I went with a heavier base marine grease for both uppers and lowers. Surprised they were so dry from factory.
