Liked a comment on the item 2021 FOX Suspension Lineup Unveiled 4/8/2020 8:53 AM

I was triggered by your initial question. The entire reason recent Fox CSU's creak is because in 2015 when they released the new 36 they made the crown 10mm lower at the steerer tube to minimize ATC height for the new taller 27.5 and 29" forks. The old 26" 36 forks had a super-tall bombproof crown, and...more

That drop down to a concrete handrail was insane.

The Runt works quite well and does what Diaz says it does. It is a great value and a sweet upgrade that goes into your fork in about 5 minutes.

I agree with the race vid analysis. BT pulls ahead of himself with just a few extra pedal strokes...more

This is a question that we get a lot these days considering the mass offerings of coil spring conversions available on the market.

What we would say is that for a rear shock, the coil is a really great option. Rear air shocks require tight...more

Really nice looking bike. Just wish the seat tube on the large was 430 mm instead of 470 mm

Forgive me if I am misreading you here, but do you think that is a step in the process we somehow missed? At the risk of being redundant, the clip in the video is for demonstration purposes, not a literal display of what we did once over the course of a four-month test.

You can catch my SB140 thoughts here. There's a big difference between the bikes given the different wheel sizes. In comparison, the SB140 is solidly in the play bike category. I think the Switchblade would serve as a better all-around ride in varied terrain.

Great review. the 140/160 category is pretty stacked. Ive spent some time on the sb140 how would you say this compares?

Liked a comment on the item Unlike Anything Else - Trust Shout Linkage Fork Reviewed 2/1/2020 1:29 PM

Doesn't it seem like all the positive attributes of the Trust forks can be achieved by running less sag and more compression on your existing telescopic fork? Less brake dive, doesn't throw you forward when you hit braking bumps or deep holes, stability on steep sections, etc, these are the...more

I'd like to chime in with my experience. I got one on loan to demo on my own bike since I'm local to them in Utah. No doubt it takes a few rides to get used to the fork! I had to adjust to riding more forward on the bike which is a part of what makes the fork work well. It wasn't until a...more

reading is hard. from article "and while an air shock is in these photos, he has an X-Fusion coil on another bike and will be swapping that over."
