That is why I love Vital so much. Detailed reviews/first look, including suspension analysis (so we can cut through the marketing BS).

I hate when they forget the dampening. I love getting wet on the trail

Going from a flat crown to a drop crown does not require to slide down the stanchions. You need a longer steerer tube though, so yes, I agree with the riser bar as the best solution.

My guess is that the "Boxxer 29" is actually Boxxer legs and internals with a Lyrik Boost casting and custom crowns. Why? Get your rags ready, because your heads about to explode; that looks like a 15mm axle.

Hi everyone, nice to see so much debate arising, great to see the engagement between users.

I'll explain some of the topics as best as possible without making it too long winded or over complicated.

The springs are dual-rate, this is the precise term and is unambiguous. There are two discrete linear rate...more

I've always been interested to try springs like this on a mountain bike.

Nailed it!

It's not that complicated. The part of the spring with the big gaps has more torsional strength so it is stiffer. The part with small gaps (is longer so more flexible for a given load) is easier to compress.
The duel coils on off road is easier to make and fine tune as there two pieces, this is a one shot...more

They've been making progressive fork springs for motorcycles for a long time and they don't expand. And if engineered and used properly, they won't bind since the spring rate is just much higher at the end. It's not relying on physical contact/binding to provide the ramp up - that would be retarded.

Doesn't need pinch bolts as it can't turn because the headtube is oblong.

Not much wrong in not offering them aftermarket right away when there are hardly any metric bikes out there that don't come with a (Super) Deluxe...

EDIT: first i wrote not much logic, which was wrong, this is what i meant. Ofcourse there is logic in them offering it, just that nothing...more

Quality reviews, as always. Suspension analysis is a nice touch, but you need to include the Center of Gravity height used (from the BB or ground) as well as the frame size analyzed. These two influence the AS a lot.
