We hear your feedback on the q-factor. Some riders prefer the shorter stock spindles for better clearance in tight trail conditions, while others prefer the longer spindles for stability and foot clearance from the cranks. We now offer a separate long spindle kit for...more

I rode the high-end model for a few days this summer and really liked it. I felt very comfortable on it right away and it blew my mind how well it pedals. It's very responding, but gets a bit nervous at high speeds, with that I agree. I didn't think it was too bad for a trail bike, though. On some hits I also felt like the shock extends very fast for the first few centimeters and then slows down, but this was very rare.
As a trail bike it's pretty spot on, if you're looking for something to smash the uphills and still get down every trail with a grin on your face.

A little update: I got the Allsports IMC Lacer brace for over a year now and I'm very happy with it. It has very little to no wear (even though I ride like 2-3 times a week at least) and it's very comfortable, I don't think about it at all anymore, even ... more »

What about Reece Wilson?

still no, TLD already confirmed keeping Shaw (read the damn thread) and Vergier rode for 661 and 100% before.

No, Vergier on Fox, Shaw on TLD

maybe, but it looks very different, and I think it's a lot smarter to clamp it in the front, so why change it?

Added reply in a thread 2017 Racing Rumors 12/5/2016 12:07 AM

It's not a Boxxer, the upper crown doesn't match, the Boxxer crown is clamped in the front. So probably an Öhlins prototype, but where does that picture come from, it's not on his instagram..?
