Izzo vs Transition Spur comparison would be super interesting. I also wonder how much impact that DHF had on the test. Would be interesting to see if he would’ve needed about the same power on the IZZO as the Mondraker with the same tires. Great test though!

Right? That’s gotta be way overkill. Bike only has 115mm of travel, just the tough casing alone is damn near indestructible. All that and NX and that bike might weigh 35 lbs for a size small

Beautiful. How does the short travel version of this bike pedal? Hard to find much info on it, since everyone seems to go with the LT

what CapnBlueberry said. also, i'm a mechanic and i have had to warranty/rebuild/bleed/set ifp depths/throw in the trash more reverbs than i can count. it was incredibly tempting but it would be like buying a pet komodo dragon knowing it is going to bite you as soon as you get home.

Seriously, and still have to fuss with hydraulic actuation. What’s wrong with a cable? It’s just easier in pretty much every way.

I’ve had my Dust Ups for for about 4 months and love them. I’d agree with some of the points here. They’re definitely not as robust as say 5.10s Impact Pro or Freerider Pro, so might not be quite as good in burlier downhill scenarios, but for trail riding in the Southeast I prefer them to the free riders. They’re cooler, much more comfortable, and the grip is pretty ridiculous. The climbing shoe type tongue makes them great for long pedally rides, where the tongue on the Freeriders would eventually cause some rubbing at the front of my ankle when going for 30 mile or so days. So far they’ve held up great too. The sole is in much better shape than my FR Pros were in a similar amount of time.

You know, I was skeptical of Vorsprung's business model when they first came out with the Corset and then RS and Fox came out with their own versions of large negative air chambers literally a season later, but they consistently slot themselves ahead of the OEM improvement (almost...more

As posted elsewhere: the Push kit is a really good concept - coil performance for the first 2/3 of the travel with an adjustable anti-bottoming system. Fundamentally both the ACS and Smashpot are pretty similar there, and with any given spring rate you'll notice absolutely zero...more
