On manual tuning front, it'd be cool if shocks/forks at a QR code on them that you can scan with your phone and takes you to the manual and tuning... Super easy and guarantees you get to the correct manual/guide for your suspension.

100% Jeff. Fox's product when working is fantastic but the service intervals are too much (probably why their service is overwhelmed...). My Float X2 is outstanding when I have it running. Truly works well and the ability to make minor but meaningful ... more »

Great thread I too took the Big S with a heavy does of cynicism even though I do think we tend to be moving to an overly critical mindset here - I think a lot of people and companies are trying to do the right thing but there a lot of real factors that ... more »

I think one of the more interesting things will be if there are any teams that switch to Ohlins... Loic and Finn's suspension looked pretty damn good compared to everyone else.

I think Sven noted in an interview that there were not many riders whose contracts were up. Maybe we will see minimal changes.

Reply to E-Bikes Approved on National Park Trails and Likely BLM Soon - Thoughts? 9/12/2019 7:03 AM

This is really my concern with eBikes. More people out there, which is great, but that needs to be matched with more trails and resources to support the additional users. In my limited experience with eBikes, I have seen more inexperienced riders out ... more »

Is it possible DH ends up on RB?

I don't even see DH on the NBC schedule...

Man, Danny Hart to Huffy... Didn't see that coming

60+ and going full race mode at MSA!!! Hell yeah. Maybe getting older isn't so bad...

I moved to a smaller size and feel better. I have been moving between XL and L the past couple seasons and I think found my sweet spot with a L ripmo. I'm 6'2" but I have a long torso and short limbs. I was just too stretched in the back department on ... more »

Reply to Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 7/25/2019 3:25 PM

This has been a great thread. One thing that has come to mind, is why doesn't RockShox/Fox/Etc. have a traveling "pit" that moves around for the summer from key riding place to key riding places to help people with suspension tuning? I would happily ... more »

Reply to Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 7/24/2019 8:50 AM

Yeah Brines. I am off them a bit as well. Although I am running less Air then recommended, a volume spacer, and faster rebound on a 160 then my weight recommends. I'm 185 with 72 PSI, 7 LSR, 4 HSR, 15 HSC and 11 LSC as base settings and then adjust compression ... more »

Great thread. I spent a lot of time on the phone with Fox when I got my new 36 to fix an issue that I was having. Over the course of remedying that issue we talked a lot about setup and really working with the air spring as others have mentioned. They ... more »

Reply to EWS Doping Thread Disappearance 6/27/2019 6:58 AM

This is simply dumb. Life has nuance and you need to be able to accommodate it and be flexible. We all understand that these athletes are responsible for what goes in their bodies, but why doesn't everyone think there is this massive infrastructure for ... more »

Yikes... everyone likes a french line joke every once and a while but Richie has to know he can't make that joke anymore....

Reply to Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/3/2019 12:28 PM

In terms of Redbull TV, I have heard that this part of serious media play and long-term strategy decision. Whether we like it or not, every company with disposable cash is getting into the media business. The ease of distribution has enabled everyone ... more »

Reply to Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/3/2019 6:50 AM

Given that there are points on the line for Qualis I think there would be decent viewership here and worth an extra fee. I do wonder about logistics though. What is the gap between riders at qualis? I believe its pretty tight which would make filming ... more »

I also think the lighter frame and, potentially wheels, allow them to have heavier parts in other areas and stay at a weight they want. Who knows, they may also be fucking with us.

I heard that at the request of Jordi at Fox that the Syndicate needed to have a mechanic solely dedicated puzzling. Apparently, Jordi wanted an extra resource to spend more time deep diving on adjustments. Guess Greg simply didn't twist the knobs enough ... more »
