Typically I visit Vital and PB every day. If there was a race on the weekend that I wasn't able to watch (and sometimes won't find time to watch for a week or more) then I avoid visiting Vital until I've seen the race because I've had results spoiled on this site in headlines and winning bike article thumbnails before. I don't begrudge Vital at all because reporting things like this is to be expected, but it's a little disappointing because I love checking out the site on my coffee breaks and I miss out on that, and Vital misses out on my sweet sweet clicks for that time. I think there are better ways to report on races, e.g. PB still gets my clicks on their non race related articles during that time because it seems they make an effort to not spoil the results in headlines or thumbnails. Just one user's perspective, for whatever it's worth.

I’m in the don’t post the results in the headlines camp. I avoid Vital from race morning until I’ve gotten to watch the race, which could be days later, and visit PB instead. That way I can keep enjoying all the other bike related stuff but not have the race semi ruined for me.

Yup. Vital posts spoilers in their headlines. Pinkbike doesn't. Which means I'll visit Vital in the days leading up to an event (because Vital Raw vids are the tits), but once the event has happened, I stick to Pinkbike until I've learned the results on my own terms.

Shrug. It's no skin off my back....more

Every time this bike pops up it's equivalent of getting dumped on prom night.

see above: "Unlike the pricier FOX 36 which is built around 7000-series alloy stanchions, the Z1 comes equipped with 6000-series alloy. The lower-grade tubes are thicker to compensate for the material property differences"

I would definitely check with Push before buying a spring kit for the Z1

Whoa, Laurie, Where'd the hair go? Going for a more aero profile, or weight savings maybe?
