This 100% matches with my experience. I'm now running Huck up front and Cushcore in the back, and I'm very happy with the mix of rim protection and burp protection.

3 reasons. 1. because 97.5 is a radio station. B. "reverse mullet" is breaking our community apart and we need to come together. III. beavis and butthead would laugh at 69er. if we need to go to court over it, our lawyers said that the "6" could come from "650b" and we'd probably have the case thrown...more

Looks like a more a durable protection than clear vinyl, not actually grip tape.

EXT is doing it right with an adjustable hydraulic bottom out control

Pretty sure some are labeled on the bottom as water, only for athletes at large events. At other events I’ve been to, I’ve seen redbull get dumped out and replaced with water, far from cameras obviously.

In which case all the comments and titles of “Two Shocks” would be inaccurate. Technically still only one shock “ie shock absorber” and a spring. Our common thought of what a Mtb shock is, has just been broken into two separate parts. They could add ... more »

Looks like a couple varieties of air shock being played with also. Curious to see where this goes. Wonder if there’s any damping going on in the upper “shock?” as well or if it’s purely spring. Can we still call it a shock if it’s not handling damping

Does the actuator at the bottom of the post still require the hosing to move like the previous generation? (Previous generation doesn't work well (or really at all) with the new lower link SantaCruz frames)

Two divorced parents taking their anger out on the kids. Why the fuck are riders being punished for this?

Still looks to me like like a standard shock. Rocker pivots and pushes back down on it. I think his leg is hiding the upper and lower mounting points for the other shocks mounting bracket. Think they just left a standard damper with no spring on it in

Aesthetically, shock in downtube looks so much better. Possible twin damper setup is interesting, but seems so unnecessary now a days. Looking at other pics floating around, it’s hard to tell if the upper shock has a reservoir. Would make sense for the ... more »

Added a comment about press release DEITY Launches Full 35mm Carbon and Aluminum Handlebar Line 3/12/2019 12:20 PM

Because the OE spec on many bikes now is 35mm. Gives Deity more access to OE market and allows consumers with 35mm OE spec to choose Deity bars as a replacement option.
They’ve been vocal about not being fans of 35mm and wanting to take their time to get it right instead of just releasing another 35mm option that’s too stiff. Their 31.8 components are not being replaced or phased out.
