They have an inner bushing
Here's how you deal with it,
Use a tap to thread into the bushing, then pull a little and it comes right out like butter
But first use your lathe to make a piloted driver with a shoulder to stop it at the correct depth.
Then extract it with the tap, and...
garbage but maybe less so than the other two
garbage I hear they are adding 20 more pivots to the linkage, kind of like a knolly 6x6 + a delta also steepening the STA to 45* from 30*
They are waiting till trash day to put that shit by the curb.
why do you want it to stand up?
its just the opposite of bob, your lifting the bike and yourself with your pedal power instead of transmitting it into forward drive, dissipating it as rebound, ok its not as bad, but its still useless, and makes your bike do burnouts on steep dry climbs and locks...
ALWAYS run the lower jockey wheel.
Because with any rearward travel your derailleur is tugged,
running the lower pulley allows the chain to "extend" by unwrapping as the suspension is compressed the results of this are
1 essentially gives the derailleur more throw, you have less difference...
The only thing your getting out of the X2 is that the HSR is adjustable..... and with that comes compromised low and high speed compression. BY FAR NOT A FAIR TRADE OFF
SO, on my super awsome DW link pivots,
coming down something similar to stairs, approaching a 180 degree turn that is not...
Theres a few things at work here.
First the X2 is a gimmick.
Ill lay my case
The twin tube design was heavily implemented by ohlins in road racing, where the shaft velocities are low, and the only high ones are potholes. Having the external low speed adjusters and external high speed adjusters...
Bro you're cush core is on backwards. Have no experience with a cush core but I installed some yesterday in a friend's bike, not sure I would ever add that much unsprung and rotating Mass to my bike ever for any reason ever. Unless paired with some ridiculously light carbon wheels to offset it some
