Yeah, the construction industry is crazy right now. There are people that took mortgage to build a house and now when they are halfway into it they found out that the mortgage will not be enough to actually build the house. They are in debts to their ears and no way to finish what they started...
Many developers will not even make a quote because the prices are skyrocketing and the quote will not survive a week. Even cities had to stop building some of the projects because the money they allocated through the long bureaucratic process will not be enough to actually build the damn thing and they can't just say 'yeah, lets throw more money at it'.

On the same trails a bike with less travel will put more stress on the wheels so yeah. But with less travel you would probably ride mellower terrain anyway so I am not sure that point is meaningful.

There is no reason for it to ruin the curve. Sprindex is linear spring like any other. wink Unlike any other, you can adjust the actual spring rate to make it stiffer or softer, I run mine at 530lb and I can set it anywhere between 500lb and 550lb in cca 5lb increments. I think you had some sort of progressive spring on your mind, this is not it. smile

They should step up their game. The Glory days are long gone and Remi deserves proper and up to date bike.

I know that Downcountry and short travel slack bikes are all the rage these days but let me add my point of view. I've ridden a few of these bikes and they are indeed a lot of fun and feeling light and spirited on climbs is great. I just ran into problems when pointing them downhill. They give you all the confidence and if you forget that you actually don't have that much travel nor proper burly components, the bike gets hammered really fast. Just a few boosts off of small trailside lips with landing cased into gnar and you can kiss your rear wheel good bye.
The geometry of these bikes seems really capable that I was not afraid of riding them on bikepark lines, just plowing through features and small rock gardens but after a few weeks I just realized how much damage I did to the light and fragile components these bikes are made of. It does get expensive to repair it all the time and I can only guess what those constant bottom outs (you don't feel them while riding but they are there, a lot of them) would do to the shocks and eventually frame.

I would say that if you are used to traditional XC and ride light terrain you will love this new breed of bikes, they will give you confidence never before seen on pure XC bikes. If you are enduro guy that is used to smash every feature and you just want something lighter for those quick after work laps, just be really aware of what bike you ride and don't hit those bigger lines because the bike will not tell you that it is out of its depth, it will take it, but only so much..

That doesn't match my experience at all. In terms of sizing/fit, it runs the same as all my other Fox stuff from the past 2/3 years, including shorts and pants of all sorts. The pockets are not huge but they EASILY hold my iPhone X, on top of that I personally think the pocket is in the perfect place -...more

RE iceman2058: I have iPhone 11 in a case and it is really uncomfortably tight fit. I saw this tight squeeze comment in some other review, it was of FOX waterproof trousers I think - they stated that the phone needs to be held while zipping up the pocket and it will fall out as soon as you open it. My point was that they changed the design significantly and IMO it was for the worse. But 1000 ppl, 1000 tastes.. wink Also maybe I just gained some weight and/or my older Defend shorts stretched over time..

As for the other guy - it only means that I had to have them shipped across whole Europe to get them and could not try them before hand. If you have urge to insult people on the internet I suggest you outside to some fresh air and go ride your bike.. wink

I bought new Defend shorts this summer after my old ones wore out. I must say that I am not at all impressed by the changes. The fit is way slimmer, the pockets are stupidly shaped and way too small to fit iPhone, it is very uncomfortable riding with it in the pocket and also the large side pocket is gone. I ordered them from god knows where as they were really hard to come by in the color and size I wanted and I was really badly surprised. I am hardly taking them when I am going riding which is a shame as my old Defend shorts were my all time favourite.. :/
