FYI, the SRAM Guide brakes come stock with organic pads instead of sintered. Change those out and all of a sudden these are awesome brakes.

Lots of people run light compression/more air spring (tokens, pressure whatever you need) to help a bike feel less harsh on high speed impacts. It works well, but can feel bouncy if you're not used to it.

Old bits of shirts as hole plugs with a spoke to push them in (does this work?) Yes- it works well... thicker rag material seems to work best- like an old towel.

We don't use a whole lot of DAQ on prototypes. We have stored files and can run them through a shock dyno. Generally I've used linear position vs time and some accelerometer based stuff. Sounds like a cool project!

Gotcha. Yeah- I think the Showa/KYB were advertising their chassis as the second air chamber- like if the main air spring were to fail- the air would still be trapped in the fork leg and still provide enough spring to help you get back home.

It sounds like you are on the right track. In school- I did an independent study in place of an elective and built a gear-box bike frame. You might be able to petition and do a study on the subject of your choice. I would say any suspension in the future ... more »

Vivid air and coil are both quasi- twin tube recirculating shocks. The benefits are there, however cost and overwhelming adjustments aren't always the best.

I think other manufacturers are doing them. I don't see it as a high end product. the weight is too significant in my opinion.

We usually will do a tuning camp or at a minimum send multiple tunes/samples to the larger companies, take feedback and adjust as necessary. Usually we can get them comfortable on one of our multiple stock tunes, but if not we have done customs in the ... more »

Not currently. Most people don't experience too much mid-stroke harshness with air-springs. If anything air-springs are a bit soft in the mid-stroke (vs coil with same bottom out force). I think it would add a great deal of complexity and expense to ... more »

Agree. Ramp should be controlled by frame linkage. But sometimes a frame or rider needs more ramp (or less) and adding tokens is cheap, easy and accomplishes similar end result (limiting harsh bottom outs) vs building a new linkage.

I don't know about any secret test tracks in Durango... HB might if you can find him.

Nice- I did not know that... I think a progressive fork spring might be easier to do since it's not having to interact with a frame linkage.

we're already making (since 2013?) a semi-active shock for Lappiere: http://www.lapierre-bikes.co.uk/technologies/ei-shock-auto
