Generally an increase in fork travel by 20-25mm won't have an adverse impact on a bike and in many cases it can help, depending on the original geometry. 50mm is pushing it though. What bike are you on?

"I think right now the level is so high, it's really hard for a up and coming rider to ride that fast on your own, you need someone to show you it's possible." You nailed it, buddy! Congrats to Max. We look forward to great things.

Added a new video Nepal - Across a Country 9/27/2016 1:31 PM
Original

A man and his hardtail explore the vastness of Nepal in this inspiring video. Take in the incredible sights, sounds, trails and diverse ancient cultural heritage alongside Tangi Rebours as he rides through several of the country's most unique regions.

From Commencal: Join us on an epic journey across Nepal. Riding along side elephants and crocodiles in the jungles of the South. Soaking in the wonderful culture and trails of the Kathmandu Valley. Passing through the worlds deepest canyon the Kali Gandaki Gorge, to reach the magical kingdom of Mustang in the high Himalaya. Starting at an altitude of 415m on the hot steamy planes, we reach 3,710m as the snow covered mountains of the Annapurna range tower all around us. Nepal is full of surprises, has the best trails, there's endless jaw dropping scenery, and you'll find some of the friendliest people on our planet there. What's not to like?

I just love how there is no rules.
Random companies, years of geometry evolution out the window.
Just flood the market with random crap

I feel like the slogan of Interbike should be, "Come find your next bandwagon to jump on."

Looks pretty dang dialed! Would be sweet to see a photo of it. A longer travel 150/170mm dropper might be nice for the steeps, depending on how tall you are.

As is typical with the bike industry, things went a bit too far and then they took a step back.

I've LOVED my POC VPD 2.0 for the last couple years. First pads that stayed in place and don't cause rub. they offer tons of protection too. Whey they finally go, I'm getting more of them.
