I hear that time is with a bail, too, though it wouldn't be a Missy qualifier without one.

That's interesting... wonder if Vitals web server wasn't patched for night before lasts leap second.

Crashed a bunch of web services last time they added one in 2012.

I wish my M6 rode as well as this M16 does... or at least that the top linkage bolts wouldn't try to escape by the end of each run.

Once posts that can drop without sitting become mainstream, we'll all wonder how we got along without them, just like we did for non-drop posts. Sitting to put your seat down does some pretty bad things to where your COG & hips are when you're getting ready to hit tech or steeps.

Ha! You've clearly never seen Dave Camp ride.

For real though, have you ever been hauling along a new-to-you trail when it suddenly drops away into an unexpected tech fest? When you're really moving sometimes there isn't time to sit down, even if just for a split...more

sidewall stability is probably my biggest complaint with the narrower rims. I had a hard time finding a pressure that let the tire deform properly at the contact patch, while not feeding back from the rear wheel in even shallow turns. I could probably find a pressure that works, but my frame actually will work with the full size rims front & back, so I'm more inclined to throw 29er wheels back on until I can build a scraper rear wheel to go with the front(provided I like how it rides better with the scraper, which I at least have one wheel to test with.)

Built my wheelset last week, took it out for a first ride this weekend. First impresion: While WTB claims you can run the trailblazer all the way down to 23mm IW rims, I was not very pleased with how they rode on Flow EXs. Got a front wheel built with a scrapper this week, haven't had a chance to ride it yet.

Made my 29er hardtail feel like a 26, speed wise, but not fat bike sluggish.

Ugh, those sometimes don't play so nice with outboard bearings. probably helps a little with chainstay length though.

Tenneco is an american company, and indeed they have been battling bankruptcy for years now. It is not a surprise. Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise for Marzocchi.

Marzocchis fame and quality went to the ground the year Tenneco bought Marzocchi USA.

I seriously doubt Marzocchi Italy will close.

Even if Tenneco crashes & burns, & this actually affects the MTB division(which isn't likely, from what's been said elsewhere) there's too much value in the brand for someone else to not pick it up(not to mention other assets like existing designs, inventory, etc.) Hey, people have been saying for years that Shimano needs to at least be a majority shareholder in a suspension manufacturer, in order to combat the OEM deals SRAM works with manufacturers due to Rock Shox, maybe they'll take an interest.

Please at least try and contact a company before posting this sort of thing. The same story has been floated about elsewhere and I'm fairly sure Marzo have said its just their moto range and the mtb side will be unaffected. The last thing they need is for unconfirmed rumours just as the mtb side is...more
