Never buy the Mk1.
It's as true now as ever. This one actually looks alright

Another thought on OP's OP: The two biggest differences between drivetrain groupsets are materials and finishing. Fancy finishes don't make components stronger, but materials certainly do. There's a lot more metal and a lot less plastic in an expensive ... more »

Here's a quick list off the top of my head of expensive things that make no difference whatsoever to performance on an enduro/trail bike, or might even make your bike ride worse: -Kashima -Spending money on carbon/ti parts to save weight -upgrading to ... more »

The real question here is: Did they finally improve the CSUs to stop them from developing the dreaded creak?

DHR2 rolls faster than Aggressor? You're so wrong, despite your impressive experience and qualifications.

Good news! I talked to congress and they said they'd pay off the deficit in two weeks.

Dang.

Wish we'd gotten bike geometry right the first time in 1990 but it takes some tweaking ya know?

I liked the full detail tear down, next time i have to explain to someone how the adjustments work i can just show them this instead of pointing to the outside of the fork while i explain and they just look at me confused but nodding.

I think a lot of suspension engineers are putting hand in face right now and trying to figure out a workaround for Fox's patent. Genius really. So simple.

So it's basically an externally adjustable shim stack for HS compression & rebound and a standard orifice damper for LS. Pretty smart.

Time to mount up the OG brown 36 on my so-old-it's-horst 5 Spot for a "heritage" ride.

I was triggered by your initial question. The entire reason recent Fox CSU's creak is because in 2015 when they released the new 36 they made the crown 10mm lower at the steerer tube to minimize ATC height for the new taller 27.5 and 29" forks. The old 26" 36 forks had a super-tall bombproof crown, and there are still 2007 36 forks on dirt jump bikes around the world that don't creak, whereas my brand new 2020 36 creaked after three rides. All the while 10mm of axle to crown height doesn't really affect ride quality- just run one less spacer or a lower rise bar. 10mm additional stack height below the headtube equates to roughly 4mm of stack height above the headtube, so I'll take a taller ATC and no creaking any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

The ATC on the new 38 ranges from "it's fine" to "just deal with it," depending on how much travel the fork has.

There were some spy shots of these new forks in that thread as well as a lot of talk about how to store your bike to get oil to the foam rings. I just put two and two together.

"The smoothest, stiffest, most tunable forks we've ever made." - FOX

So they're claiming these are better than their past products? That's surprising. wink
