Published on February 3rd 2020


In this weeks Ask GMBN Tech our Ex world cup mechanic Henry gives his advice and opinions on Your mountain bike tech questions 🔧. Time-stamps ⏰ below 👇 00:00 - Start 00:17 - Could I put a 50 tooth Sunrace cassette on my 42 tooth Shimano drivetrain both are 11 speed? 01:48 - What happens if you fit a lower travel shock on your bike? 03:30 - can you explain what would be the pros and cons of running a shorter size crankset on a trail bike? I know DH bikes run on 165mm generally and 175 come stock on most other bikes. 05:45 - I was wondering if the process of bedding in brake pads depends on the material of the pads (sintered or organic ). What's the right way to do it? 08:09 - Coil on my Nukeproof Mega? Should I modify one? 10:18 - 2018 Nukeproof Mega 275 Pro with a Super Deluxe Coil Shock? I've noticed it on 29er 12:07 - I'm thinking to upsize my DH bike by going for a Mondraker Summun in XL. It's too big so I want to adjust it with headset cups. Is this a good idea?
