What's all the big fuss over inverted forks? For motorcycles there are rubbish cheap bikes made in China with inverted forks and excellent performing normal way up forks on great bikes. Being a good fork is number one, being inverted not really such a great thing as I think the potential for damage and extra maintenance headaches is a serious problem enough, then teething problems with new designs. Out of about 10 forks I've had only half have ever made it to being 2 years old without serious issues. Seems like reinventing the wheel before the original design is fully refined.
For example not every hydraulic disk brake is better than mechanical brake.

This is just an annoying publicity machine. Make something out of gold get publicity, melt it down into something else. This one is ever stoopider, an inferior material too.

X-Fusion manufacture for Fox in Taiwan. Like Fox their forks perform excellently on the trail, especially good for racing. However like Fox if you use their forks everyday they probably won't last and will need a lot of maintenance so you'll probably have a host of warranty issues. Not hating , just a heads up from personal experience.
X-Fusion rush their R&D to get their product to market sooner than other manufacturers, this is because they like mo' money.
Also lifetime service and warranty is pointless if it takes them 2 months to service your fork. You'll need a back-up Pike for when your X-Fusion is away being repaired for the 10th time. In fact, screw it just buy a Pike. The gold coloring on these fork is vile anyhow.

Marketing alert! Max length is 800mm unless you are an orangutang. 780mm is enough for most. My Renthal road bars motorcycle bars are 760, motocross are 800.

Finally a reason to upgrade from 9 speed.

One word: Menopause.
She slammed on the brakes so you'd hit her. She's most likely an attention seeking narcissist.

I've done over 1000 miles using a similar homemade method. If kept to roads and smoother hard pack it is completely safe, unless you are a really inexperienced or poor rider. Obviously you'd be insane to try to ride with your precious kids anywhere that an accidental endo was even possible.
Maybe change the marketing a bit this is actually a really great idea for city riding, having the kid behind you is much more dangerous.

He seems kinda hamstrung by his sponsorship commitments, I wonder how his bike would look if he was free to choose.

It's not 11 speed we need, just the range of 11 speed, that 42 tooth ring on the cassette and the clutch, still moderately happy as I ride so much I ruin derailleurs every few months, so prefer the cheaper options like X7.
My Giant contact switch also has 100mm of travel, but limitless height adjust. This has a horrendous looking lever and is untested. I can't see that this post is what the market wants.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the market wants...
-5 inch or more travel.
-limitless height adjust
-no play in the post

Great, but I want to watch this online worldwide the same way I do with world cup DH. Red Bull TV or some other way would be ideal.

It's not having a new new wheel size that I find scary, it's the desire of the industry to 'phase out' one of the wheel sizes to reduce manufacturing costs. I like 29 or 700c for commuting or even XC racing on straight course, and sure a 650B might even be capable of winning in endros, but I hardly ever race I want to have fun on my bike, and when it comes to having fun 20-26 inch is where it's at. I mean think about it, the only reason a chromo strong as heck BMX can still do big jumps is because it has small comparatively light wheels.
Also it's weird that the pros say it doesn't really matter as each wheel size has advantages and disadvantages, yet the industry is pushing these wheel sizes as the next big thing.
