I imagine you’re not asking me, but my G1 is pretty similar.
MTB analogy to cars w/o computers = hardtail, esp. SS.
Some are, but most are either pursuing what’s best, or just like the experimentation/journey.
I thought that, so I bought a Saturn14. It has its place, but I...more

Holy mother of bike checks!!! The details and pickiness are amazing. Thank you!

Do you think there is a place for shorter, nimble bikes? (And I mean in the forest not a pump track)

Just like in a car world, there are people, although few and far between, that care about the experience more than a performance. They drive old (or old in principles) cars that require more brain capacity to control them, but in return provide much more sensation at a far, far lower speed, than a modern alternative developed at a race track.

Do you see any analogy in a MTB world?
Do you think people like this are just stuck ups, that want to feel like they are better than others?
Have you ever thought you took things too far into the gnar direction and wondered about #underbiking?
If you would build an xc-ish bike, would you look into single crown inverted fork? or Lefty?
IPA or Lager?

It is preference, until a few more years go by and your IT band is screaming or you have seriously bad sciatica. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

As you are saying, most people I know too measure wide and get recomended 140+ saddles. But as ever it comes down to personal preference.
For example I should run 150+ acording to my sit bones, but Im more comfortable within traditional 130/140 range.

They are on the top of my radar as a replacement for PA01A. Same tech and even nicer platform!
Im happy to know they work well for you, even compared to Vaults!

After MegNeg video, we've also seen you going back to stock Fox and letting DSD play with it.
Which setup do you prefer now?
Is DSD tuning magic something that can be replicated by an official Fox service center?
Does your RS Super Deluxe have some Transition OE tune or is it aftermarket off the shelf offering?

Im looking to improve my 2019 Scouts rear suspension performance, and yes while in different travel brackets, all Transitions seem to have similar suspension quirks...

Thanks for any help! Please keep up the nerdy suspension videos.

Looking for and suspension advice. I own 2019 Scout GX. Rear-end often feels a bit dead, (the usual doesn't feel supple off the top, but also doesn't seem to have support for bunnyhops and pumping) I don't think I can handle the rebound any faster, and ... more »

What drove you to change styling so dramatically with scout and sentinel 2.0?

The article says 77 SA.
The table says 76 and 75,5, Depressing... :D

On the other note: Was this the original Downcountry bike?
