    I've got a Stumpy Evo and when I start rocking the downhill, moving around the bike and moving it under me I am hitting my knee on the bracing port side of the shock. Know I'm not the first to encounter this. Is it bad riding form or position? Pretty sure my neutral position is left foot forward, right back which is probably part of the problem. Any suggestions (aside from teaching myself ride right forward)?

    Sounds like you might be up on the bike and pinching your knees together on the DH. Loosen up a bit and get back on the bike. Let the bike do it's thing.

    Haha that’s fair. I just assumed you were in that club since you are asking questions regarding a high clearance bumper.

    Are you wearing any knee pads?... If not will help with your discomfort on the bike and also if you have a sudden dismount off the bike... :anonymous:

    No pads. I don't ride enough long downs to warrant knee or elbow. But was thinking of getting some ¼" foam tape used to seal truck caps/beds and putting a couple strips on that section until I can get less "puckered" and knees in

    I have an older Schwinn 3x8 hybrid, basically predecessor to the modern gravel bike. I want to put a 1x or even a 2x setup on it (1x would be sweet). I have my eye on the AdventX 10sp 11-48t cassette. To keep the same climbing gear, I need a 42t chainring and I’d gain some top end. Can I slap a 42t narrow-wide chain ring on this crank and call it a day? Looks like just 4 bolts, is it that easy?

    So I know it’s sketch looking, because it’s a shit build with the only measurements being the vertical boards. Let me start by saying I stood on top and shook it and it’s stable enough for that and solid. I’ll add more bracing of course to take a bike. However when you got junk wood taking up space at least mess with it some. Even if I only roll over this ramp 2-3 times a week taking the bike out. It’s better than it lying on dirt rotting.

    it does look higher than it is. At the peak it’s only like 2’8”

    I don't have a high clearance bumper, but I have a RCI bumper with the hitch integrated behind the plate, nice and high. The ONLY configuration that I've found that works for my very minimal clearance are the Rocky Mounts swing out racks. The issue with so many swing outs is that either the main bars that make the swing out or the latching mechanism still sits too high and would contact my tailgate, as I can't imagine that our aftermarket bumper/hitch placement is on almost any rack engineers mind when designing product.

    Bought these and since I’m a half size I trimmed some excess off the toes. Tomorrow will be the test…. Hopefully.

    Just slipping them on it’s obvious I now have arch support and the bubble on the ball of my foot.

    The insole is a heck of a lot stiffer while also being more padded than the factory 5.10 insole.

    fingers crossed no more numbness.

    Interesting. What is necessitating the swing out? You can't drop your tailgate otherwise? The 1up folds down, so I may just have to lower it completely to drop the tailgate (as opposed to keeping the tray flat when 0 bikes are on it)

    I went from 5.10 Impact Pros to RC Tallacs and started getting numbness. The Impacts did have an insole, so I picked up the SQlab One11 insole. Huge difference in the shoe. Stiffer, tons more arch support (I have a high arch), and zero numbness. They're transferable so they'll last a few years.
    Big fan of these.

    I'm hoping it works out if not they came from Amazon so easy enough to return.

    haha, not yet. I'll complete it soon enough in my free time. Right now it's just sitting in the backyard making the neighbors wonder.
