That whole write up is slathered in marketing blabber. It was hard for me to distill the what the quality improvements are (and they are there). True Trail. DYNAMIC CHAIN ENGAGEMENT. Rhythm Step progression. Vivid indexing. I feel like I am in a magic store.

Sam won the Overall in 2009 with wins at MSA, Schladming and World Champs the next year. I believe you were reading all the shit people were talking about Gwin not being able to win on Specialized like he did on Trek instead of following the racing. ... more ยป

yeah, I got that too. Of course a weight savings is what they tout as a benefit once they remove all the moving parts. but on a 4lb fork with a 15mm thru-axle the most obvious way to improve chassis performance is not in weight reduction, but in the stiffness of the axle to lowers interface. I would gladly buy an axle that weighs two farts more, for that reason.

I'm guessing the Maxle Stealth will be welcomed by many, but why couldn't SRAM have designed an expanding wedge or collet into it, improving the purchase the axle has on the lowers like the Boxxer axle?

That's like, your opinion maaan. I loved that they were (and are) the bad-ass, DH tinted mag too. They have always been at the forefront regarding awesome mountain bike mag journalism (Vital/Littermag too, just not in print!) .Just think back to when Dirt was still getting it's legs, the bikes/racing/tracks they were hot and bothered over have grown into your modern day DJ/Slopestyle/4X/Dual Slalom, "enduro" and DH bikes. They never left the behind-the-scenes look at DH, they just started covering more rad, fun to ride bikes and events. Don't be such a curmudgeon. Long live Dirt Mag!!!

Colin, I will shed two tears. One tear for Dirt Mag, One tear for Startgas's understanding of "now" vs"know"

Have got every single copy and never had an issue reading them...
Although the content and subscriber service did go downhill when FactoryMedia took over.
They've probably already tried, but I really hope another publisher will take them on.

The material they use requires less wind than your steel or Ti springs, therefore they can make a "one size fits all, + or - the spacer" to keep cost and weight to a minimum.

Right on Lars N' Bars looking flat out. These conditions should suit him. Hopefully he slays it for Team America. #FACUP
