Yes very much so.

Also, the new Cascade Components link is big help for the Evo. The link adds more progression and 5mm of extra travel. It also helps settle the rear end down - absorbs small bumps better and more control over the rough stuff. Works with both air and...more

Yeah that's just it a flipped horst link. It's to lower the anti-rise values.

Yeah, similar to the Devinci Wilson and Antidote Darkmatter but the rocker link on mine doesn't pivot around the BB

I was wondering the same thing as well, if I had to guess it's to lower brake jack and improve suspension response under braking (similar to a Trek ABP or Devinci/Salsa Split Pivot bike). The overall suspension design looks similar to the Antidote Darkmatter, which also has a semi-floating brake to achieve the same goal, but the Antidote uses a linkage around the BB instead of a separate pivot. It's basically a Horst-link suspension but flipped upside down to accommodate the high pivot placement.

Titanium is the best looking frame material, change my mind.

@_Lan You're not worried about your fabricator selling your design on aliexpress?

The EXT storia V3 has easily made the most notable positive improvement to the bike I currently ride, and I would go as far to say of any upgrade I can remember making. The bike (Rallon R5) has it issues with rear suspension/blowing through its travel. The storia manages to be...more

Awesome review! One of the main points of feedback we have received is in regards to the need for a 12mm wrench for adjustments which as you have mentioned can be not very convenient for trail side tuning. To address this we have made a small 3D printed tool that has both a 12mm...more

So far it feels pretty good. It does feel like there's a little stiction in the initial bit of travel, but I may be able to tune that out with the OTT setting. Can't really give a comparison as I've only done one demo ride on a diamond and didn't have much time to set it up. The onyx definitely feels stiffer than...more

How is the DVO Onyx SC fork? I've struggled to find reviews or anything comparing it to the Diamond

I know it's a personal preference, but why did you go for the 10-45 cassette instead of the 10-51?
