Compared to the TRS post, pretty much every post on the market feels like it takes a lot of force to compress. The TRS was very very light action. Ive been on both the TRS and the Vario. The infinite adjust and vastly improved reliability of the Vario dropper makes it a no brainer choice for me.

2x as much $ as some other very well performing droppers on the market. That value proposition is painful.

Been on these for a few months now. Had a few rock strikes that I was sure were going to do some severe damage but they shrugged em off with barely a scratch. Inner bearing bulge has not really been noticeable to me unless my foot accidentally ends up in the wrong place on the pedal, in which case it seems to help direct it into the right spot. Just checked the bearings this past weekend and they still feel like new.

Cam is awesome as always. Lets be honest...at this point fox, marzocchi and race face are all the same thing. This isint your dads DH3/Z1/Z2 Zokes....it's the watered down millennial marketing based version of the brand. Open bath what? Open bath who? Sucka...that's you.

The CST produced tires you referred to earlier are not really "rebranded" in the sense that CST is just selling a finished tire and companies are putting their logo on them. In all those cases companies use CST as their tire manufacturer and work with them to spec casing/compounds and generally spec their own tread profile.

CST owns and controls Maxxis. The first gen e13 tires were made at CST but current ones are not. As I understand Spech and trek are no longer made there either. Vee owns the factory and also produces tires for several other brands.

Stoked! The OG pedals were stickier than the stickiest icky. New pins are similar so these should be sweet.

It's odd that the lord cant answer such a simple question for him? Maybe she's too busy having fun riding her ebike?

Anyone remember those old dia tech (?) headsets on the Marin's in the early/mid 90's that used a cam wedge for HS preload like the new One-Up stem does?

No 10 speed, but the 11s 9-42 XCX cassette was just announced - even tighter spacing than the old 10s...and lighter. Im on the 9-46 12s, the jumps between cogs are perfect and shifting is so crisp. Rear derailleur adjustments are not as fickle as with a 50t large cog also which is nice.

Im really curious about some reviews from legit testers also. Not sure if you read the same review as I did, (online blog of a wheelbuilder who hosted the Outside Mag testing who detailed his communication with Trust?) but it said something similar. It seemed valid and well put together but then I stumbled on his previous blog post where he took some pretty crazy positions - low bb's are bad and cause extreme trail damage, droppers over 100mm are unnecessary, even 2.6 tires are too small, bikes with bar height that's below full saddle height are unrideable and some other craziness. Kinda made me invalidate everything he said in his Message review. That said, I do find it a bit odd that we are not seeing more frothiness online from people that bought them or reviews sooner. I mean...people that buy a $2600 fork probably love nothing more than talking about how superfabulous their $2600 fork is. Patiently waiting...for the jury to return.
