Its a shame this bike never hit production. AHead of its time numbers, and if it rode half as awesome as it looks, it was a bad ass ride. The design could have lent itself to a zerode type deraileur-less design too.

The UK has a super strong DH series and pride themselves on riding super difficult terrain. This is why the brits dominate DH just like the frenchies with their long running enduro circuits in the alps kill on the enduro scene.

And so they are already back to one trick Rampage wins. Just dont understand why they couldn't leave it natural and just see who could link it all up

"There will be fewer wooden, built features than in previous years, and there are going to be some big jumps." Hopefully the pre-built features will not be contest deciding features this year.

I thought they were talking no wood earlier this year. They cant just leave it alone can they? Thats what is supposed to be the coolest part about rampage and what makes it a real FR contest in the spirit of MTB. People build and ride their own stuff.

I run that set up with a mall volume xc tube in my Dh setup. You just drill a second valve stem hole for the tube. Pretty easy to set up. Plus the tube gets those annoying thin walled tires that dont always want to seat on the rim to do so.

MSA is fast, rough, and brutal. That is what Hill lives for. If he isnt atleast on podium I'll be dissapointed.

Well in all fariness to them, the demo has always come in or had a 135mm option. 2011 was the first year they had a 150mm rear end but even then the sworks and high end models came with 135mm. Frame only and the "lower pricepoint" builds were the only ones sold in 150mm.

I have known of several people having the Rc and have had no problems. So you are probably a rare exception. I agree on the AVy cart though as a "down the road" upgrade. Its highly exceptional value and performance. I think the idea though is to keep the build initially as budget as possible (all new I'm assuming)

I added the zocchi vote cause I've always been a fan but you cant argue with the boxxer rc value and its a nice performing fork. I think its a very smart pick for the build.

Agreed. I know the Code R's can be had for very very little.

Added reply in a thread why doesnt anyone use dual rate springs in mtb 6/26/2014 5:54 PM

For proper suspension performance, a damper system requires one correct spring rate for the specific body being supported through the entirety of its stroke. Higher damping or faster rebound at a certain shock position needs to be adjusted via compression ... more ยป

I heard he crashed towards the end of his run. And then got up and still finished first.
