Added a comment about video Why Does Curtis Keene Prefer Coil Suspension? Vital B-Sides 2/16/2017 8:05 AM

For me the only issue with having an air fork/shock is the temperature change. For newbies it can take a while to figure out which air pressure is good for their personal body weight, trail and change in climate. Once they mastered this then it's just about prepping before the ride. For me I set it and forget it during spring/summer it's only when the temps get super cold like in winter where I modify the air in both my front and rear suspension. The travel just gets too harsh and so I have to constantly play around with the air settings. Mostly on the rear than on the front tho.

SRAM is a damn good company and they do have high standards. But sometimes even their products need to be tested by experienced riders on terrain where may SRAM didn't/couldn't test their goods out. This is why reviews are so "Vital" to us consumers and also to the manufactures. It's how our sport and technology grows and becomes even better.

Thanks, liquid! We try to be as transparent in our reviews as possible. SRAM handled this very well.

Possibly the best damn review on a carbon wheelset, I've ever read. To actually show us the readers the video of when the damage occurred and how it may have occurred is MUCH appreciated. Thank you for the honest review and SRAM should take note and try to figure this one out. $2k wheelset made for any terrain shouldn't have issues with the trail you were riding on.

As they state on their site: "Lightweight, high-strength 30mm carbon rims increase control and confidence in any terrain." I guess not so much confidence after 3 failures.

Thanks and as always keep up the excellent honest reviews~

Yeah i always think about this when they do these back to back tests. Sometimes one can perform better after the first lap depending on how long the lap is.

I know I start to perform better after a few minutes of riding then my body just kicks in and I can haul ass.

Seriously, I couldn't bring myself to even consider getting one. I'm sure it rides great and maybe a more capable bike in future reviews but it's just so fugly.

There's something about extremely fat frames like GT and Orange that I just don't like. Going too thin i don't like as well. Oh, well, just my opinion and to each their own.

C50_img_7226_1448160267

They should also recall their elite series 2016 Fox 34 series as well. It might not effect everyone but it's still a concern. The issue is the damper or something else internal is not allowing the fork to disengage between climb, trail and descend modes.

This is only an issue if you use a remote to change between modes. I found out that there are many people like me who are having the same issue. This could be potentially dangerous for the rider.
