be careful to go back to the game with a bike that puts you off, frustrates your energy to keep pushing it.. it all comes down to budget.. you can pedal and get fit on a $300 huffy... (or Schwinn).. but do your homework.. check this out https://www.vitalmtb.com/features/Vital-MTBs-2-000-Mountain-Bike-Comparison,2793 ... more »

Yes but seals are available parts usually

Drop coil conversion on fox 36 and you have the same weight of fox 38 and a waaaay better fork.. push does up to 170, vorsprung up to 180mm.

recirculate and "splashing easily" up to the seals are different things in my "engineering" brain. I remember my MRP Ribbon Coil with some protectors on these bleed ports to avoid them being pressed while packaged, one was oily., this was back in 2017 ... more »

muddy wet rootty + rocky --> Conti Der Baron F/R.. I think Conti should make a DH version of Der Baron and Der Kaiser across the line (27/5 & 29er) though.. The Der Projekt version (folding) have outstanding grip but the csg is bouncy.. not as ... more »

tools and all needed for servicing your lowers regularly... and tires.. you can never have too many to have them fresh (on the front).

Intense Uzzi last generation before discontinuation.. I think that bike it's closer to the DH cat than to Enduro.. Offset bushing dual crown, long shock, dropper, voila.. Same for delirium... Pedal damn it
