Added reply in a thread Best front AND rear tire 3/29/2020 10:37 PM

How long did the tire sit in a warehouse though? Think it was Troy’s mechanic who was checking tires out of the package, to see if they had hardened. For same tires. I’ve run magic Mary’s, and generally liked them. I’ve run convicts front and rear for ... more »

The Scout goes from 2.85 to 2.15 and from the charts that I have seen, the Sight goes from about 3.2 to 2.6. The way we calculate progression...

2.85-2.15 = 0.70/2.85 = 24.6%
3.2-2.6 = 0.6/3.2 = 18.8%

Lots of other factors at play of course...

Forgive me if I am misreading you here, but do you think that is a step in the process we somehow missed? At the risk of being redundant, the clip in the video is for demonstration purposes, not a literal display of what we did once over the course of a four-month test.

An eMTB may not do as much damage per compared mile, but more per compared time. Say you have a 1hr long lunch to go for a ride. On your normal ride on a normal bike, you’d do one loop. Now on the eMTB would you be able to fit two laps in during that ... more »

Whoa hold up - I'm pretty sure Spomer said "any seat angle on the wrong side of 76 degrees gets docked a star..." Is the boss man gonna step in and override this rating? Sup?

Seriously though, great review. Bike looks dope.

reading is hard. from article "and while an air shock is in these photos, he has an X-Fusion coil on another bike and will be swapping that over."

Want some more time still to have a better comparison and write something more “formal”. But so far it’s similar to my previous experience having them on separate bikes. The EXT has a slightly sharper feel, as in you know what you’re riding over on the trail, but without it feeling harsh. It feels slightly poppier because of this. The dedicated climb switch performs a bit better as a pedal platform, and the hydraulic bottom out is huge improvement over the standard design.
The push is still incredibly smooth and has a very planted feel. I’ve always been impressed by how the push handles big hits also, it is super controlled. the dual circuit damper isn’t as true of a climb switch, but it does make bracketing and dialing in your shock super simple. You can make changes and easily test back to back. I did actually find it super useful this fall, as I was riding a lot of flow trail and jumps we are building, then switching back to a more trail friendly setting. You can still make it poppy and jump friendly but it will come at the expense of some of the smooth suppleness this shock is capable of. And if you need the switch as more of dedicated climb switch, you lose the real benefit of the dual damper.
