But winning general practice has no correlation with winning the race (see Ben Reid, John Kircaldie, Brendawg, etc.), unless you're Remi Thirion.

...nor does winning the internet (or internets) (see Wyn Masters, Bernard Kerr, Phil Atwill, etc.).

Congratulations to Darren and crew. This shock is a pretty inspirational piece, at least to me. I love seeing guys go all the way, making no compromises when it comes to performance, mfg tolerances, cost and customer support.

Kali is one of those unusual companies that researches and builds a great product, then sells it for less than everyone else does just because they can. Cool stuff.

I wonder if the logic behind not just improving the damper in the 2015 fork is due to the backlash from last year when they improved the standard CTD damper? I don't know if RAD is the right message - "we're addressing all this stuff but maybe not..."

It's not the supporting I'm worried about, it's the grinding of dust and mud and crap into them. Bikes that spend a lot of time on NS racks on dirt roads or in bad weather get worn crowns just from being on the rack. I'd rather have a little wear in my crowns than in my carbon bars, but that's just me I guess. Right now NS wins for most bikes in the smallest space, and this rack doesn't seem to improve on it at all. It seems like the optimal solution would be something that hung bikes like a NS but only touched tires and not bars, fork crowns, etc.

All of my bikes have carbon bars - not sure I'd want to hang them by their bars and then rip up a dirt road. Seems more awkward than a North Shore (which isn't perfect either). I feel like the perfect hitch rack is still not available.

I'd guess that it comes stock with a 200x50mm shock, and she's running a 200x57mm to increase the travel at the same eye to eye. I've seen people do that on their Tallboy LT's.

All comments below are completely spot-on, but to be fair, Pinarello is Italian, and they are a road bike company that clearly knows almost nothing about MTB. There is a cultural disconnect - This kind of hyperbole is fairly common in their cycling market/industry. They're...more
