Is this a real question? Here's a hint for you: Watch any World Cup race run and count the number of turns they schralp... it's zero.

There's already a sport for that: Real enduro. Dirt bikes. Of course the above would be fun, but MTB's are gonna be kicked of many trails in a heartbeat if that becomes the new norm. Think about it.

Think about the carousel: it goes up and down, and around.

Would that be the same coveted stripes you can earn by riding your zwift trainer?

If you want me to take a dump in a box, and mark it guaranteed I will... I've got spare time.

I’ve been testing some sticker kits lately too, but I know Leo has spent years perfecting his methodology for doing just this. Everyone sit back and be patient, when his sticker kit testing is complete we can have total faith that Pole will again lead the charge in this regard.

Some anti-squat is actually generated by the force vector at the bottom (contact patch) of the wheel, pushing the wheel forward and under the suspension pivot. The higher the pivot, the more pronounced this type of anti-squat, which explains why the high-pivot design manages to generate...more

Yes, popular belief (and my belief) says that suspension anti-squat is 100% related to chain growth. Suspension squat is about force vectors, and chain growth is where the "anti" comes from, as chain growth resists the rearward weight shift. Please link to a graph or image or explanation if this is wrong.

It’s honestly not more independent. Adding AS adds positive pedal kick and taking away AS adds negative pedal kick. The same as any bike.

Anti-squat and pedal kickback are two sides of the same coin. More of one, more of the other. If you want a bike with 100% anti-squat so it "pedals better" you will also have a bike with pedal kickback when it goes through bumps.

I actually think it's about stack height. The old Fox 36 (pre-2015) had a big tall crown that was 10mm taller at the steerer tube, but never creaked. For the new fork they made it shorter and it always creaks. With larger front wheels (27.5, 29) they're really sensitive about stack height. If you think of a fork as a gigantic lever, a taller fork/steerer interface with more overlap adds tons of stiffness and strength to resist that lever arm with very little extra weight. It's all aluminum.

There is a dumb conversation happening here. You can build light easy-to-break frames out of carbon, aluminum, or steel, and you can overbuild bikes so they hold up to years of abuse using carbon, aluminum, or steel. The better question: Is there a big performance benefit to buying carbon that warrants the $800 upcharge? I think the evidence from Loic Bruni, Sam Hill, Amaury Pierron and other aluminum bike race winners is: no.

1.8" steerer tube because those extra 10kg on those ebikes affects front flex more than variation in rider weight...Not like you couldn't just go for a dual crown either, eh? Who are these idiot engineers? Do they think we are complete morons?

Big huge YES YES YES to the new 1.8" head tube standard. I've killed the CSUs on the last 4 forks I've run on my 160mm 65* head angle bike.

But what the heck is up with some in the industry thinking just e-bikes need stronger forks? Idiots. Stronger drivetrains, yes, e-bikes need more...more

E-bikes and Enduro racing are the best things to ever happen for heavier/harder riders. Everything else in the industry is designed for 5'8" 165-pound riders with an intermediate skill level. Yes please, I'll take a double order of E-bike forks, brakes, wheels, and drivetrain, thank you..
