Another website, this one says they test it at 18 MPH, i know we were right around 15 on our tests! http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-03-18/japanese-engineers-reinvent-the-wheel

I believe they mean no preload on a axle on a rack. The way me and my buddy do it is we have a old 20 mil and clamped down the axle and placed the wheel on and spun it. You can get a XX1 and if you hunt for a bargain a carbon frame!

Wow! Really cool! I like the use of a BB (or two of them in this case) as bearings! One question though, (not trying to citizen but just wondering) why do you have the bottom arm, the one in witch the upper chain pull runs, so far back, does it make a smoother linkage, or create the suspension kematics you were looking for? It just seems like it chain stay length way longer! But very cool build! Love the Cromo!

As long as its a 35 its all standerd tubes I believe (ie the abilty to upgrade to the fast black), so their air spring should be compatible.

Big bird, I agree suspession is a personal matter but there is a point where it is too wrong and most people dont know how to achieve the feel they want!

Added reply in a thread Suspension 11/6/2014 7:11 AM

Tyler- your best bet will be to disassemble the fork and see if there are any broken peices or take it to your lbs if you don't feel comfortable. A oil change and good clean could do some good. What fork is it? Fabrice- what fork is it?
