I've been mountain biking for quite awhile now (1988). I've owned many different bikes over the years, DH, Freeride, Enduro, trai, etc. I recently bought an Ebike and I will never go back to a mechanical/traditional mtb.
I've found climbing to actually be creative and FUN now!-having the ability to pop off of...more

Your article was enlightening. I have been struggling to understand the antipathy towards e-bikes and I think you've highlighted it - culture. There would appear to be a feeling that e-bikes don't fit an idealized notion of mountain bike culture and might bring people to the trails who aren't like “us" - who...more

Super interesting. I just replaced a rear tire that had ran the Rimpact insert. 450 miles of smashing rocks, etc in steeps and all over. I even had one really low pressure incident which had me using it as a "run-flat" for a few miles. Because of that expecting it to be fairly cut up and damaged (which is backed by this test), but it was surprisingly whole with no discernible issues. Maybe I am not as rad as I thought??

Very helpful. Thank you!! I find that my lyrik charger 2/Debonair (RCT3 btw) is very supple off the top. Where I am not super thrilled with it is the midstroke in fast, steep chunk. I have added a bit of air for support, but I am looking towards a solution like this (or maybe coil) to help improve that situation. I rarely bottom out except on the bigger drops/jump. So, I am not keen to take a token out (currently have 2).

I also have read that the damper could be worked on as well, which could mean a re-value for a bit softer feel. Don't get me wrong - still the best performing fork I have ridden, but I know it could be better

I also have a current Lyrik with Charger 2 and Debonair. My ACS-3 swapped Lyrik has a Charger 2 as well. Those two forks currently feel very similar. The main difference is the ability to fine tune how the fork ramps up on the ACS-3 Lyrik. Based on my experience with the 36/Runt, I...more

Do you mind elaborating a bit on the differences between the Runt/36 and the Lyrik/ACS-3? I am weighing options on my Lyrik (Debonair with Charger 2) right now. I know it's not apples-to-apples but the coil vs. "Coil-like" comparison is valuable. Thanks!
