Love your content, Seth. I am not certain if you’re doing this now, but if you chapterized this content, it would help deliver searchable content for specific areas of your videos (and make it easier to navigate for people like me) 🙂
Hello sir i want indoro bikes ❤❤❤
are the hydraulic brakes mt 200s good for a long while because I have a pair of tektro brakes hydraulic and they wore out after like 5-6 months. I am really excited to see the price of them, thinking about biuying but wanting to know if they can hold you REALLY good when doing wheelies
I have the shinano mt200 they came on my bike as standard had them on for 2 years and haven’t had to bleed them only had to change the pads a few times 3 on the rear and once on the front
Just another thing on the microshift advent 9, it can go up to a 46t and there’s a nicer shifter with a rubber thumb grip for like $2 more than the one Seth had.
Hi from the uk love the content and explanation in terms everybody can get with ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Spot on with the shimano brakes. Have those 201’s on my propain downhill bike with 203mm rotors. Never fade, never fail, great pad life, don’t leak and still work after nasty crashes. My oldest set is on my training bike where I work. I think they are 11 years old. I have them on all my bikes and my kids DH bikes.
You are such an inspiration. I am picking up a merida one sixty 6000 tomorrow and can’t wait to ride on the trails
Seth you inspired me to restore and old mtb i found at my work, i got it running and this video is just what i needed thx
Me having a 20$ stem 😅
I think, you should do a reveiw video on the trueitve stem.
Y not in 🌎 I use cable for motobic what dif. Young guy
I use my douasport cell phone mounted on the handle bar and get really good video
PNW is a great company overall
55? cheap. damn you are rich
rose also has some inexpensive droper posts
gopros are really powerful… untill they overheat and shut down.
Have you ever reviewed those foldable mountain bikes?
Well, CST and MAXXIS is basically same company. It’s no wonder that it rides good.
Walmart used to have some pretty ok gloves for cycling cheap
Sram cassettes cost an arm and a leg aswell
So I’m still a newbie so I don’t know the difference between a 1×9 and 1×12 because I thought that the 1×12 was better just for having bigger cassettes, could anyone explain?
As a budget guy just starting out this was awesome I splurged a little on the bike and got the top level entry bike so I knew most of the worries were taken out of it for me as far as the parts but the dropper, tyres and advice on the go pro was awesome especially tyres I didn’t look at what comes on the talon but I’m sure a more aggressive one will be needed for the type of stupid stuff I’ll try and do 😅
Here in Colombia we can find the shimano mt200 for about 40$
My zoom brakes were good, had em 4 years and it just snapped on me recently
Good thing I watched this after buying an NX 😂 im broke.
So nice to see affordable and reliable components. Thanks
I got a Hussefelt for $14.
I’m a user of Shimano MT200 and it really serves me well. Although I’m not aggressive trail rider, I love the braking power on smooth downhills, on the road and on light trails. I never had any problems on the brakeset. Sorry for my english
your channel is by far the best.. your personality and calm but also passionate vibe is unmatched.. and that’s Good content no matter what ur talking about or reviewing .. Thanx for all you do Brotha…!!
Awesome info as always Seth.! Unrelated question: What’s the difference between a shimano SLX cassette and an XT cassette???!
Quality? Build Material? Weight??
Price is certainly different. Currently SLX is $104, the XT is $164… is XT worth the extra coin?
You should really really check out the tires from Delium and put them in the mix of affordable stuff. They’re legitimately incredible for the price.
Even better than the Shimano, in my opinion: the Clarks M2.
Your channel is the best I’m recently getting in to bikes and I’ve watched about 30 of your videos. Best on YouTube
Can you do a video on a surron e-bikes
What’s the name of the crankset ???
Love your videos. Very informative and entertaining. Can you make a video on full face helmet and pads? I’ve been looking for some PPE but there are so much out there and the price range are a huge spectrum.
Appreciate this video ! I’m up in burnsville and have recently purchased a 30 year old rockhopper, hope to bring it to berm peak soon 🙂 I’ll be wearing a helmet and a smile!!! With some 201 deores ahahah
The microshift advent x 10 speed outperforms sram nx in my opinion
Long time Berm Peak fan here Seth, and Im sorry, but those advent products are total garbage. I worked as a bike tech for over a decade in my 20s (granted that was quite a long time ago, lol) but every microshift product i ever came across was tragically broken somewhere on the bike in some respect. Im honestly surprised that youve had such good luck with them. You stated that you got the whole groupset for $130 with no mention of a chain. I know this video is almost 6 months old, but thankfully prices have come way down since this, and you can get a shimano 10 speed M4100 11-46 cassette groupset (with chain) from ebay for $139.99 shipped within the US from Oregon. I own this groupset and its performed amazing over the last couple of years on both my full suspension and hard tail in all conditions. Good info on the cranks, dropper, and stem, though I would have liked to see some other amazing budget products like Kore, and RaceFace which have very comparable stem and handlebar products, as well as ixf and jgbike cranksets.
Okay I’m a mtb hardware noob. I have an awesome bike but it has old “brifters” kind of like a road bike… they’re hydraulic though which shocked me to learn. I’m trying to upgrade it though because obviously can’t stick with a break shifter combo… So I’m wondering do I have to find out somehow if the shimano mt200s will fit my bike or is that kind of stuff basically universal? Thanks to anyone who can help 🙌🏻
Cst is cheng shin tire, they make maxxis tires
I have the microshift advent its the worse Derailleur ive ever had I prefer shimano deore m5100
This would fit a talon 2 ?
I have the shimano brakes and the same stem on my jump bike….. had them for 4 years and never had a problem 👍
My Son has the mt200 on his pushbike (ramones12). Its a good and cheap hydraulic brake for kids. Lever is adjustable and fit to small kids fingers.
I have a pnw loam 200mm dropper and it is amazing. For 200 dollars there is no better option. The only problem I have had was the seal exploded once but I just had to reset the seal and it was fine. If you want a good dropper get the pnw loam.
90 dollars is ridiculous for tires
I like the PNW Coast dropper post with an air adjustable suspension seat stem because it works really well to smooth out the ride.
