Two questions for ya Jeff:
1) How do you think this compares with the new SC Nomad or YT Capra? They all seem like bikes with similar purposes in mind.
2) Is a shock swap something you think would help the mid-stroke support? Maybe a Vivid Air or CCDBair?

I know it goes against every fiber of your being looking at something that's not brand spanking new, current model, even if it's cheaper. But the much bigger reality of buying more affordable bike parts is buying parts that have been sitting in a warehouse for over a year and aren't getting marketed as hard as the first 5 minutes of its life. Do some of that. Because that's what really constitutes a cheaper build for most people while still not buying used.

Not exactly- small bump doesn't always mean small velocity. The shock velocity is more dependent on shape of the bump- even a small rock or tree root generates a medium/high shock velocity. The low speed inputs are all rider generated- pedaling, pumping, weight shifts etc. The goal of the damper curve is to resist movement due to rider inputs, while still being sensitive to terrain.

"when they arrived it was certainly better than Christmas!" Seems like the reviewer was 5 staring these things before even trying them. 5 stars yet no mention of issues w/ excessively tight tire fit in the "things that could be improved section" or the comparatively high price when considering other carbon offerings on the market right now.

I had the same thought when I read that part. Review sounds less than objective, I'm guessing he didn't pay full retail for these, if he paid at all.

funny the disparity of comments. dirt raggers think it is the greatest hardest thing ever. here people see it for what it is. Well executed photo/video/custombuilt turn, but super easy to do, in fact in really cheating. i think we need another bar drag bounty with DSQ for any fake inside humps of dirt
