Does this supercede Winter Park as "Mountain Bike Capital, USA™?"

57mm stroke shocks get most of the benefit. It varies a little depending on the specific spring rate, but looking at a 500+, for example, it requires 19% more force to compress to 57mm than a 500lb linear spring. On a 50 or 51mm stroke shock, this spring

Hello Chaz, Good question. There are a couple benefits to the Ramp Control systems that I think beat tuning with volume alone, but it should be noted that with our Ramp Control Pro cartridges, you can can have both. For one, tuning with tokens is a "in ... more »

Hmmm. Maybe we'll look into that. Thanks for the suggestion!

The Prophet is a classic. IIRC, it has a 200x51mm shock, so I don't think you're gonna be able to squeeze a progressive spring on a coil shock that size, unfortunately.

That might be better question for Samsquatch (above), he knows more than I do about that frame specifically. FWIW, it seems like a great match for the Progressive spring and a co-worker has that exact vintage Patrol with a Hazzard and Progressive spring, ... more »

Rad, glad you love it! Get a Bartlett, they're awesome! Hope to get some reviews in the future. FWIW, it is effectively a Ribbon dual-crown, so I believe the reviews for that product crossover. Obviously it adds that second crown, which greatly increases ... more »

I'm totally jinxing myself, but I actually don't get flats very often anymore. The last one I got was on my gravel bike while rallying downhill on rocky Jeep road. It was an absolute mess, sealant everywhere. For MTB, I've found you can be pretty reckless

I'm all-in on cheese now. I just had cheddar pirogies and pizza for lunch. Dropping dairy will only make you faster on climbs if you're carrying a lot of it in your pack or pockets. It's simply w/kg.

We have a 600+ option that was added not too long ago. If you're looking for heavier than that, definitely send an interest request to our general e-mail address (info@mrpbike.com). That's usually how we gauge interest in a product or line extension. ... more »

Depends. The Progressive springs (if used to 65mm of stroke) have about a 20% progression, so it's by no means makes every bike "coil-friendly." It's really intended for linear to modestly progressive designs. What bike?

It makes me feel warm and fuzzy that in 10 years of being registered on Vital this is your first post.

Thanks, a lot of those start as pet projects of mine. Words cannot describe how cool it is when a random idea I had while out riding becomes a commercial product. The AMg was this way, once Shadow+ derailleurs came out I thought "hmm, I wonder if combining

Do you mean you have it in the short-travel shock mount on your bike or are you talking about running it with the Shred Lever on (firm)? I assume the latter, in which case, maybe? From engineers: "Constricting oil flow dramatically, as with a climb setting ... more »

I still have one of those FSR links! I found it in a box in the back with a million shock DU bushings and 6x25.4mm shock hardware. There are a lot of MRP / Mountainspeed, White Brothers, Total Air, and Power Grips relics from the golden years up in the
