Keep in mind these photos represent an accurate cross section of typical forum experts..Mismatched and unnecessary protective gear coupled with a mix of baggy and lycra "kit", overstuffed backpack for a 1/4mile loop, elbows down, ass out,...more

This ^. I would recommend one day at as many bike parks as possible vs multiple days at one place. Keystone, Steamboat, Trestle/Winter Park, Crested Butte, etc are all fun.

Probably not. He said himself it was the first flat tire he's had in a race. If he would have been running an extra 4 lbs of rotating weight at the tire for all of his World Cup races, he wouldn't have flatted at Leogang, but he also most likely wouldn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread why doesnt anyone use dual rate springs in mtb 6/26/2014 3:02 PM

On a coil sprung fork, yeah, it would make sense to have a progressively wound spring, which is common on motorcycles. It seems MTB forks are gravitating towards air springs, even for DH, though. Then, air volume can be adjusted for the same effect, ... more »

Added reply in a thread why doesnt anyone use dual rate springs in mtb 6/26/2014 2:21 PM

That's a leverage curve issue. Air shocks have had an overall similar spring curve shape for a long time. The frame should be designed around it, if it's designed to use an air sprung shock. You can make a frame with good small bump compliance that uses ... more »

That's the design philosophy that I used on the Guerrilla Gravity GG/DH, except I went one step further. No linkage, progressive leverage curve, standard coil shock.

Added reply in a thread why doesnt anyone use dual rate springs in mtb 6/26/2014 2:06 PM

Cars and trucks generally have a lot more limitations with packaging, and don't have the luxury to move the shock around to modify the leverage ratio curve (although they call it Motion Ratio or Installation Ratio in the automotive world) as much. Even ... more »

As much of a pain that pneumatic tires are, using air as a spring is very light weight, low rolling resistance and able to be tuned for stiffness (ie tire pressure). The "tweel" design will most likely always have higher rolling resistance and probably ... more »

The Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail already has that sort of change with Trail Mode and Gravity Mode. Geometry, travel and leverage curve all change by moving one bolt. Vital has already ridden it: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Frames,7/Guerrilla-Gravity/2014-Megatrail,14284
