I just once want someone to show how to change out fork oil in the dark on a cold winter evening on the front porch(that the missus is still pissed about all the chain lube drips being on) with the wrong tools and stuff falling between the slats into the leaves underneath and digging around in the leaves with a tiny headlamp and refrigerator magnet desperately hoping to find the piece of crap metal (was it even steel) so you can ride with you buddies stupid early the next day.

Thanks folks ... still remember meeting Spomer at a NORBA so many years ago and knowing instantly I’d met someone who got this whole MTB thing. Years of Littermag then Vital later and that still holds true! Cheers for the good times on this journey of bikes!

THIS. The harshness that people are trying to combat occurs because of the steepness of the spring rate curve and how close you are to the bottom - more tokens with less pressure will just make both of those problems worse. Seen countless riders dropping pressure looking for a more sensitive fork, only to end up making things worse. Once you rip those tokens out and just add enough main spring pressure to let the fork sit up in the supple part of the stroke, you're golden. The trick then is finding the right balance, which is becoming easier with these larger negative springs.

Hey Jeff, there have been a few instances across the several years of EWS where the water stops have run out of water, and the race in question was one of them, these guys are coming through the Aid stations after several hundred riders, and sometimes they just run out. Every ews rider is told to prepare for 2 hours unsupported on the bike, and our guys always do. so it was one of those shitty situations. As an example, in Rotorua a few years ago, the water ran out, as the support zone was quite remote, and the few hundred riders that had already passed through it, had used all the water to clean their bike. Richies story is accurate, i know not everyone is going to believe it, but why would he release a legally binding statement to the highest power in Anti Doping in the world, that was false? The penalties of falsifying a statement far out weigh what he has gone through... Hope that helps answer a few questions.

I like it, but wish it was more expensive.

So much hate on the UCI.

I take it you all prefer that everybody just does their own thing, like having a roided up competitor on a non-standard bike with a hidden electric motor competing against you at a track which is not taped up properly and has substandard course preparation by an organizer who is more inclined to make money than have good racing?

Or do you just hate your local federation so much that you blame the UCI for it?

I was sincerely hoping someone (Vital...) would do this. Your team's coverage is second to none.
