1. Let's stop playing the blame game with UCI. They're job is not to make money for the sport. They simply provide guidelines of qualification. They do not dictate business.
2. Everyone on every continent has the capacity to put on an event that is WELL funded, draws top riders...more

We think alike, Eddie! The ESC dumped UCI and USAC and banned tearoffs long ago.
Then attendance exploded.

I don't think that's true for DH or enduro, just road. Think of how many prototypes have been raced by Intense, for example.

Added reply in a thread Are Global DH Bikes Sales Falling? 10/20/2020 11:29 AM

Yes, the numbers discussed are close. It's a difficult segment sales-wise. I have to imagine the number of top-end DH bikes going out the door at full margin is miniscule. But, I also think the market for $3-4k DH bikes will grow in coming years as bike ... more »

I have one. I like it. I haven’t rode anything new from RockShox or Fox. It was a large improvement from the DVO Diamond it replaced. Not as plush as the DVO Emerald I have on the DH bike, 20 mm less travel though. I do have trouble getting full travel, still playing around with...more

MRP Bartlett is pretty much an Enduro dual crown

Vital is getting one for review shortly. It's basically a dual-crown Ribbon, which has won a lot of awards in it's own right and has a 5-star user review on this website (and our previous fork, the Stage, got 4.5 stars from Vital and 5 from (2) Vital users).

I think most people judge bikes before they even sort out their spring rates. "This bike pedals like crap." 40% sag. "This bike is really soft and dead feeling." No volume spacers. "This bike is really bad on steep trails." Fork too soft. "It's so harsh on rough...more

Odd tire choice. Why did you choose the Forekaster’s?

A couple years ago I had a "park" drivetrain setup and a "trail" setup for the same bike. Just two chains and cassettes. I used a Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain with 11-34 and 11-42 cassettes. The HG800 11-34 road cassette uses an MTB freehub width. It's nice to have a shorter chain and tighter gearing for park.

Disagree on all points. 38's still creak, and nothing compares to the stiffness of a dual crown fork for big holes, steep terrain, and heavy braking. If you're in a bike park there's no need for 12 speeds, and the longer chain and derailleur cage are much more likely to make...more
