That's the problem with single crown forks. The longer the travel the worst it gets. It's why I only ride dual crown forks.

What size frame is he running? I am guessing it isn't an XL even though he is tall enough for it. Also missed what pressure he runs on his front tyre. I do find it weird he runs the same pressure front and back on his freeride setup given wheelsize is different...
Interesting that the 2021 fox40 now comes with different crown offsets.

That front tire isn't a wet scream unless it is the new version of it.

Depends on the track doesn't it? If it is rough more travel will be faster.

Tight switchbacks can be done be pivoting on the front wheel. The pros usually nose manual for more efficiency and speed. A dual crown won't be any problem with that technique. Doing tight switchbacks without that technique requires skidding the backend around. If you are exceeding the turning radius of a dual crown then that implies you are going super slow.

If you don't unscrew the pump fast enough you do lose air or if the screw is longer. Airing up my DVO Jade is a nightmare because of this. I'll put in 200psi and then when I check it again it'll be 185psi!

Added a comment about product review BIKE TEST: 180mm-travel Pole Stamina 9/27/2019 3:46 AM

I'd recommend the L for your height. You will have to change the way you ride from off the back to in the middle to slightly on the front to get the most of this bike. I'm 1.8m/5'11" and have an L with a +1º headset thus giving me 520mm of reach. I recently tested an XL geometron (535mm reach) and liked it even better!

Added a comment about feature Only Nine Speeds. Is Simpler Better? BOX Launches Prime 9 Drivetrain 9/3/2019 12:10 PM

I don't mine getting a box chain. What I want to know if I can use that cassette with my GX 11 speed shifter with my NX derailleur limited to 9 gears (since the cassette is narrower)? I find that where I live 11 speeds have too many redundant gears.

Is the spacing between cogs the same as 11 speed? I want to know to see if I can run my sram 11 speed deraileur and shifter and just change the chain?

That is a 2.35 Magic Mary. They used to make a 2.5 but now they make a 2.6 though I think it is actually the same tire seeing as the 2.5 was more like 2.56. However, remember that Schwalbe make true to size tire which isn't the case for other brands eg Maxxis (their non WT tires are not true to size).

It still surprises me how many pros run short bikes and ride off the back. Glad this new setup is working for him.

Have you tried one? They do make a small and medium size with short reach. I'm 5'11" and have an L with 520mm of reach and have no problem with it!

You can get a Pole with the EXT Storia shock as well. You can't go wrong with a Pole or a Nicolai Geometron both have great geo and great features!
