LOTS of updates from today. Pretty sure this has been the most productive two dig days in the history of Rampage. Finally found my way down the mountain today. Took about 5 hrs of looking and decision making but I think in the end my line choice should be good? Who knows tho... #rampage A photo posted by Brett Rheeder (@brettrheeder) on Oct 5, 2016 at 8:49pm PDT Day two in the Rampage jungle.

Generally an increase in fork travel by 20-25mm won't have an adverse impact on a bike and in many cases it can help, depending on the original geometry. 50mm is pushing it though. What bike are you on?

"I think right now the level is so high, it's really hard for a up and coming rider to ride that fast on your own, you need someone to show you it's possible." You nailed it, buddy! Congrats to Max. We look forward to great things.
