"Crystal suspension oil"???

Maybe the tweekers got too close to the oil drum.

A garmin, or any other GPS, is no where near accurate enough for race timing. And if the tracks are in the woods, then really forget it. If you just want to "Strava Race" your bros for free, you can do it right now! The easiest, most fool proof way I ... more »

Please explain differences between CBF and ICT from Ellsworth. http://www.ellsworthbikes.com/tech/instant-center-tracking/ Is it more than just same idea on single pivot vs a four bar? How does CBF perform if you want to run a bigger front ring like a 36t, or smaller like a 28T? Seems like it is married ... more »

I've got both this shock, and the coil version, used on a Nomad.
It came with a Vivid air.

Both Fox shocks are superior to the Vivid, with coil version (with climb switch) being the best.

Vivid air either felt crappy in the first 2/3 of the stroke, or it would never reach full travel.
Played with it for months, sent it back to SRAM twice, now it sits in the tool box.

The shock in this review is great on the Nomad, and the DH X2 with climb switch is even better!
Nomad is my XC bike, so I flip the lever for climbing.....

I liked the PB version a bit better, funny stuff!

They're calling it 'Freedom Linkage,' and Montague said that the name is both a nod to their American-made ethos, as well as how their bikes are ''free from the bullshit. Our suspension designs are incredibly refined, without being complicated or gimmicky.''
Why the change in design? ''Marketing, mostly,'

Incredibly refined, free from BS, but changed because of "marketing" aka "bullshit". Hahahaha!
Couldn't make this stuff up, but I guess weed is legal in Colorado...

Any rider safety issues mentioned?

Or if you snap your neck do you still have to hope for some go-fund-me love and the generosity of friends/strangers?

Red Bull has tons of cash to include a nice athlete insurance policy for this event and others like it....

I wonder if anyone told him about the "Specialized Curse" before he cashed that check.

Free version of this is rad, much better that Garmin connect. http://home.trainingpeaks.com/ For what it's worth, the "trails" that bikes got banned from in this dispute are not worth mentioning. All horse stuff, super small area, never even though about going there....

Don't forget the angles as well. The Breezer has some dated angles thanks to Joe Breeze.
He is a good guy, but not exactly on the same page as modern trail bike geo.

This one is more slackerer which means more betterer!
