Added a comment about feature 14 Things To Be Stoked About for 2014 in Mountain Biking 1/1/2014 9:04 PM

What's all the big fuss over inverted forks? For motorcycles there are rubbish cheap bikes made in China with inverted forks and excellent performing normal way up forks on great bikes. Being a good fork is number one, being inverted not really such a great thing as I think the potential for damage and extra maintenance headaches is a serious problem enough, then teething problems with new designs. Out of about 10 forks I've had only half have ever made it to being 2 years old without serious issues. Seems like reinventing the wheel before the original design is fully refined.

For example not every hydraulic disk brake is better than mechanical brake.

This is just an annoying publicity machine. Make something out of gold get publicity, melt it down into something else. This one is ever stoopider, an inferior material too.

just another hype fork - im certainly not impressed, if im going to spend 1700$ on a single crown, it had better say BOS on it... Almost all of my experiences with x-fusion products have been overwhelmingly negative, lots of stiction, slow turnaround times for services, very...more

X-Fusion manufacture for Fox in Taiwan. Like Fox their forks perform excellently on the trail, especially good for racing. However like Fox if you use their forks everyday they probably won't last and will need a lot of maintenance so you'll probably have a host of warranty issues. Not hating , just a heads up from personal experience.

X-Fusion rush their R&D to get their product to market sooner than other manufacturers, this is because they like mo' money.

Also lifetime service and warranty is pointless if it takes them 2 months to service your fork. You'll need a back-up Pike for when your X-Fusion is away being repaired for the 10th time. In fact, screw it just buy a Pike. The gold coloring on these fork is vile anyhow.

Marketing alert! Max length is 800mm unless you are an orangutang. 780mm is enough for most. My Renthal road bars motorcycle bars are 760, motocross are 800.

I've done over 1000 miles using a similar homemade method. If kept to roads and smoother hard pack it is completely safe, unless you are a really inexperienced or poor rider. Obviously you'd be insane to try to ride with your precious kids anywhere that an accidental endo was even possible.

Maybe change the marketing a bit this is actually a really great idea for city riding, having the kid behind you is much more dangerous.
