Bare in mind these were not “for the camera” just functional proper scrubs. I’m going to have to go with Mitch for the pure violence and Finn for the finesse and precision

Good rule on bike checks: Leave the weight blank if you haven't weighed the bike.

Zee 11 speed is a mistake ofc. This is 10 speed. Minion DHR? Check once more. HR not DHR. Other parts like NS Bikes or Dartmoor. Godziek Brothers, check them out. ( Dawid Godziek used to ride for Daartmoor, as well as Szymon, for now they are both signed with NS Bikes ) Octane One is a cheaper NS Bikes, this is same brand, just for wayl less money. Accent is well known in Poland and distribute by Velo.pl. Two same pictures? They are not the same, second is added by admin with "BOD" tag. Other pictures will be added after this weekend, i dont have much time to upload everything at once.

Push ACS3 MSRP is $389USD including spring - Jenson sell it for $309 WITHOUT spring. Our MSRP is ~$315USD including spring. We use hydraulic anti-bottoming so that you don't have a spring plunger physically impacting an air spring plunger mid travel. There are no moving seals to worry about wearing out, no air seals to leak, and it dissipates kinetic energy instead of storing it and then releasing it again - there's a reason it's easier to tune rebound damping with linear springs than progressive ones. It can provide equivalent bottoming resistance with lower peak forces too, because peak hydraulic forces occur earlier in the travel (where velocities are higher) than peak spring forces with the Smashpot, whereas with the ACS3 the peak force of both the air and the coil springs occur simultaneously at max travel.

Should you ever wish to move it to another fork, everything except the top cap (and possibly foot stud) will transfer over. It's internally guided to reduce spring buckling and noise as well, which the ACS3 is not. Replacement springs are cheaper too ($60USD vs $80USD).

I guess now's not a good time to mention that a DVO kit may or may not be under development...

Lyrik RC2 with a Push ACS3 is the best fork setup on the planet. Hands down.

As posted elsewhere: the Push kit is a really good concept - coil performance for the first 2/3 of the travel with an adjustable anti-bottoming system. Fundamentally both the ACS and Smashpot are pretty similar there, and with any given spring rate you'll notice absolutely zero difference in performance during the first 2/3rds of so of the travel since a coil spring is a coil spring. Both have anti-bottoming systems which as a whole achieve a pretty similar thing.

However, the Smashpot is cheaper, has internally adjustable travel, goes to both longer AND shorter travel settings, has a wider range of spring rates available, is transferable between forks at a minimum of cost, has no components impacting one another mid travel, has no air seals to worry about, doesn't need a shock pump to adjust and is guaranteed* to get you laid.

*eventually, probably.

Thanks for the reply! It's definitely a product I'll look I to for other builds as the Asc3 is very expensive but for my main build to match the 11.6 it seemed like it was the only way forward.

The luftkappe is a quality product, I had on my pikes! Keep up the work man! Cheers
