Or maybe they are doin a take on the Schwalbe! Either way, coil and real tires, I am liking where Curtis is going with this, moar Enduro, could be a game changer season for the big guy!

Um no black carbon on 17 D3, most popular colour way and it's not in the line!

Or is it in the 16 ?

No disrespect to any other company name, but Zocchi name still makes me ballz shiver! Old days Zocchi anyways pre 08!

As much love as I have for Ohlins in Moto Zocchi did it for me in MTB, the green ring is strong though,

So who knows! I'm glad DVO do a black option as green would not match my blue frame and Mom always said blue and green should not be seen! it would be great to be back with a brand that understands it customers like this.

Really enjoyed the podcast. Had either forgotten or didn't know just how deep Martin's background went with bike suspension. I like a lot of what he had to say about the brand and perspective on the bike industry. Really looking forward to see what DVO...more

Great interview. Finally, someone else talking about the massive waste incurred with all this knee-jerk standards changing every 18 months.

Awesome interview, great points I am one of those dudes, that builds bikes up, do all of my own maintenance servicing etc, pretty over the LBS, hardly ever bought OEM spec and have been sitting for awhile and watching esp re DVO, so looking fwd to the new products this year as an option.

Silly question last not current or future, having had the Bomber, aka one of the best forks of that gen imo and experience as a rider, then 66 RC2X 06, 07 888rc2x was put off after that with so many prod issues very unfortunate as always was performance first weight afterwards type of rider! Also Mx background!

I've also long fought and argued long before it was common re standards, 15mm vs 20mm etc etc but now I just sit on what I have for much longer! Enjoyed the DVO segment and you must hate this but the Zocchi history is so cool turmoil and all.
I do wonder why at the time so many in the industry forget some tech was available to forks like the Bomber!
Q: for BM, so curious as to why didn't u use a Cannondale SuperV for the Bomber when it came out, it had a 1.5
HT had massive alloy tubes, a carbon elevated rear end, it was a beast perfect for the Bomber, pity u didnt take that on the road to Canada, re bike I know I had one on mine, went from a 70mm Judy to a 100mm Bomber!
loved that beast, JT Magura hydraulic rim brakes, full XT hubs gears!

Also prob rude to ask another question, I love air, but also feel coil is still the best which is interesting Ohlins is developing a coil Enduro fork in this segment again, what are your thoughts here and is the new longer travel fork going to have a air model and cool model also aka like the Zocchi days of old,

ps the Zocchi girl adds were and still are the best, though JR is a great ambassador and does a fantastic job for your brand imo great girl and family btw..

Cheers and all the best for DVO lots of competition in suspension market again which is cool, but look fwd to the new products!

Great quali from Tahnee and great initial result for Transition bikes too, good luck for race run!

Loic and Rat will be epic this year, if both stay healthy could be a real rivalry there, hope so we need a war at the top, everyone is too nice, be nice after race day, be at War before and on the day, win or go home!

Bring it home Sammy Hill (ftw)
lol.

I love techology and its cool the cool kids can have so many cool toys, but the EWS is going the way of the UCI, maybe being forced by the industry, but it needs to fight back, no practice on courses it should be blind, at most a seperate day/s for a track walk only!

Key here in relation to this article is Bikes should be limited to one bike for the season for pros esp, this means the development of bikes will continue and provide closer competition rather than who has the most toys or most effective quiver of toys wins, of course courses should remain tough, this and other comparisons is showing the direction the nature of the EWS is becoming and imo fwiw its a bad thing for the disipline in the mid to longer term!

Sort it out before it gets to complicated and or too elitist if it hasnt already, as road biking racing and XC did to MtB in the previous decade, dont let Enduro destroy the rest of mtb and racing!

Funny how Gee gets so much grief. Winners are focused and often very serious. This guy puts so much work in and sacrifices a great deal out of his daily life to chase tenths a of seconds only to get crappy commentary from Internet aficionados. Kind of a bummer, really....more
