To be fair, I've had it over a year now. But yeah, I put a lot of miles on this bike. Despite having a few other bikes in the quiver, this is always the bike I reach for.
A pair of tires lasts 3 days at the bike park. A pair of brake pads lasts a month, maybe (I do change out rear pads more frequently than fronts)....more

I wonder what's stopping Airwiz from doing what Shockwiz already does

I'm hoping Flight attendant and AirWiz are both precursors to a full blown integrated ShockWiz which does everything Flight Attendant, AirWiz and ShockWiz do but in one integrated unit on the forks/shocks. They all seem like cool tools/features on their own but having them all in one unit...more

The bolt on pro guard does look like a good option, but it looks like it costs almost twice as much. The Fox item also has the benefit that it uses the bleed port bolts as anchor points so it's more sturdy.

It's a bit odd that it wasn't launched alongside the 2021 forks though.

@Sylentk I run a Magic Mary 2,6 on the front of my bikes so my preferred mudguard is the www.rapidracerproducts.com Pro Guard Bolt On, 2 lengths available, either one works perfectly here in the UK

The bike park racks want to see how it tastes.

Do you think that silly 42-50/52 jump is a philosophical decision (e.g. "the big sprocket is for emergencies only") or simply laziness (i.e. "we already had the individual sprockets designed for 10-42")?

Gotta say, seeing the Alchemy price back to back with the Chameleon’s price made me LOL!

I own a bike with twinloc (obviously) and I don't understand the comment regarding "tuning". Setting the tension on the cables is trivial and tuning is done wide open. If anything it's simple to tune because there's so little external adjustment. There ... more »

Twinloc is useful and not difficult to deal with? "What a mechanic finds easiest to deal with" and "what makes a good bike" don't necessarily intersect.

I believe the recent trend towards high pivot trail bikes has led to increased interest in axle path in general. Even Specialized pretends its common-or-garden FSR bikes have a "rearward axle path", so I assume someone's asking...

Thanks for the response, it isn't a determining factor, I was just curious. All the best for the campaign

Also it's surprising that you've never been asked about that, given the particular interest in axle path these days!
