Not me for one. I was halfway joking, but that's still a significantly shorter interval than recommended fork and shock servicing periods which are usually around 100 hours.

Pefect: So if I were to pony up for one of these magical dream steeds, given my current riding habits, I would only need to service that little flux capacitor EVERY MONTH.

What were the primary shortfalls of the previous Switch design and how does this improve on those? Disclaimer: if that is expressly addressed in the video my apologies. I fulfill my internet compulsions at work and setting the volume to zero is key to that end.

Yeti claims to have three years of riding in all conditions on a single prototype with no service required. Fox has also put the Switch Infinity system though a one million cycle slurry test.

No Alu option? Is this only going to be offered in carbon? I know $3K is the going rate for a premium carbon frame, but I don't see why they couldn't offer the Nomad in Alu for half the price.

I think Joe G might have been throwing a subtle dig in the direction of some specific companies. Spesh vans and RS monster trucks don't blend into the scenery too well. In all honesty the rangers are pretty laxed though. It would be easy for them to ... more »

and Denver D, you touch on another concern that didn't exist in MTB a few years ago. While it's interesting to track a ride with your GPS device (shit, I can do it for free on my cell phone), people uploading their trips to the web make pinpoint trail ... more »

Thank you, Spomer and well said Cruzian. These videos are used as the content for their advertising/marketing efforts no less. Why not use footage from Demo which is both closer and legal (or not at all). The MTB traffic in SC has definitely spiked in ... more »
