Turman- can you comment on rear end stiffness? Also looks like long dropper posts (125mm or more) are a no-go, is that the case?

More fuel to the fire: https://dirtmountainbike.com/bike-reviews/downhill-bikes/inside-trek-rd.html I figure if it's faster- run it. I'm all for skin suits and no visors.

you can slam it lower- the hose on the stealth routed posts usually hits stuff before the actual post is bottomed in the frame. She looks pretty short so probably wants the shortest seatpost possible.

it does pump a little more oil- the piggy back shocks have a 12.7 (1/2") shaft where the inline shocks have a 10mm shaft. Bigger shaft = more oil displaced.

For me as an average joe, its not the weight that sells me on air over coil, its the how much easier/cheaper it is to tune an air fork. Tuning a coil sprung fork is a lot of parts to buy and install and uninstall in iteration until you find your sweet...more

changing wheel size every few years is not causing mtb racing costs to spiral out of control. I think if Payet could ride a 32" wheeled bike faster than everyone else- he'd be stupid not to.

Can you comment on frame stiffness? Seems tough to maintain good stiffness with so many pivots.

Cool to hear that the linkage actually makes good on the claims.

do you have a link/more info on the timing they used? Is it just (basically) two clocks with printers?

The funky adapter+trunnion mount shock is so we could fit a "metric" sized shock on a frame designed for the old standard sized shock. It's not just adding complexity for fun.
