Hey sspomer, how about a podcast with Nigel? I bet he has some stories!

I would never, ever, ever want to go back to a coil fork. Coil rear sure, especially on a little dick bike that's getting hammered in the rear suspension, but why would you give up the air spring tuning?

Granted I don't ride like Curtis or #teamrobot, but after going from a Lyrik RC2DH air to a Vengeance HLR Coil, and back to a Lyrik RCT3, I'm sold on air as well. Turns out I like the progressiveness of air. I'm sold on coil shocks though, still not quite there on the air side.

How does the Topaz play with the Tracer? Did you have it tuned for it? Are you able to compare it to any other shocks?

Thanks! I can ramble on far too long about yesteryear, glad someone can get a kick out of some old school stories.

I'm personally not a fan of headphones/music while I'm out riding, but these seem like a good option for the gym.

Coming right up. Test Sessions drops in a few weeks!

I like the inclusion of the suspension curves. The linear vs. regressive beginning stroke is a nice touch, should make sag set up less critical, at least in terms of leverage. I've found the older VPP bikes to only work in a small sag range.

No pics or words re: the new bottom link?...more

Couple of comments:
#1, this is really bad news for bikes like the Firebird.
#2, the new nomad 4 is gonna look a whole lot like this!
#3, Vital, great write up! Please do a mega enduro bike comparison as soon as you can!

it's not just racers. i'll give away our future episode queue so you can all see where we're going. Episodes touch on a lot of what you're mentioning. These are already recorded and ready to rip - Stikman (Troy Lee), Bryson Martin Sr. (DVO), Duncan Riffle (SRAM), Jose Gonazalez (Trek...more

She cheered me on at Sea Weasel last year, I definitely agree with the friendly and approachable part. I'd say she's a great ambassador for GT. Haters are always going to find something to complain about. Keep it up Rachel and GT!
