These always feel like previews for the real video. I'm sure John could talk for hours about setup and what not. Instead were left with a few sound bits and b-roll

That was about the most underwhelming thing I’ve ever seen.

140/150 isn't short travel to me.

Pepperidge Farms remembers when 140/150 was long-travel.

At least they have backpacks being 40 miles from nowhere. The golden age of search and rescue is upon us. I suppose it's no different than being on a motorcycle 40 miles from nowhere between 2 10,000 ft mountains unprepared, but people might get a little casual with there new...more

Based on the photos it looks like Gwin cut his bars down 5mm, too.

I'm dying to know how you can tell his reach length or wheelbase from photos. Please tell me more.

There's more useful information in a handful of these opinions than in a 1,000 miles of the "bad road" known as Pinkbike comments.
Thanks Vital!

Following a few wrist injuries I am also very sensitive to harshness transmitted through the bars. I found the Shout best when paired with some handlebars offering a bit of give to make up for the momentary harshness that can be experienced on even curb-sized dropoffs. ALL the pivots. Haha....more

Hey Lee,

One question, did you pay for the fork? Any relationship with the company in question?

Having ridden one I can't fathom ever picking this fork over a normal fork in the 150mm+ application. In certain trail settings (120mm), I could see it being a cool alternative depending on...more

Added a comment about product review Unlike Anything Else - Trust Shout Linkage Fork Reviewed 1/31/2020 8:31 PM

Doesn't it seem like all the positive attributes of the Trust forks can be achieved by running less sag and more compression on your existing telescopic fork? Less brake dive, doesn't throw you forward when you hit braking bumps or deep holes, stability on steep sections, etc, these are the benefits of the Trust but they're also the reasons why pros run 10% sag or less on their forks. And it seems like the tradeoff is the same: harshness. Sounds like the Trust is harsh on small bumps, and I can promise you that running a telescopic fork at 6% sag is also harsh. Even the advice is the same, “it feels rough, but you get used to it.” So couldn't you save $1000 and just pump more air in your current fork? Ride faster, brake later, and hold on for dear life.

Good theory. Hard to say though. He's done other equally as cringe worthy videos, too.. Regardless, I'm sure Canyon paid for the production, at minimum, which was in the thousands of dollars.
