I switched over for a few reasons but the biggest one (kinda personal) is that I’ve come to terms with needing to not hit as much high consequence stuff anymore after a couple bad TBIs in recent years. The Dreadnought is perfect for someone who mostly rides park, shuttles, big hits/steep high consequence tech. It...more

I completely agree. I see enduro and DH frames morphing into the same thing with different components hung off them. After all they are built to do the same job - getting down a hill as fast as possible. DH bikes just don't need...more

Yes, thanks. I knew it'd be in there, just couldn't be arsed.

Plus, as I said - putting the offset in the crowns improves turning radius, which matters if DC is to gain traction on bikes that get pedalled up.

46 steers noticeably differently than 42, and having fewer castings stops the price climbing too far. So much cheaper & easier to adjust offset with crowns.

All very well with DH head angles. If Enduro DC forks are going to be a thing we'll need much lower offset in the castings. Partly for steering lock - offset in the crowns gives more room, and partly to get down to the 37mm offset people are wanting. ... more »

It's really the opposite idea to what Primoz mentioned - "supposedly the 27,5" Phoenix required an air shock to add stiffness to the bike". With a properly designed frame, only the direct load would apply to the shock. Any bending or twisting should ... more »

Gross. The shock shouldn't be a structural member. Bring on the spherical bearings instead.

These HP designs are cool and great for pro riders with pro mechanics to perform bike surgery every week, but the sheer number of pivots and crevasses on some of these bikes should warrant trepidation for the rest of us. If people complain about pressfit BBs creaking,...more

I see your Fool and raise you an F-U. You're speaking to a man who has worked in bike shops and Moto shops for decades. Press fits in bikes are nowhere near as robust as in motorcycles and looking at the creak complaint meter has clearly seen that press fit BB"s creak...more
