Reply to Re: Spoomer ca 2017. Anyone gone from 29er back to 27.5? 8/10/2021 1:40 AM

I don't know if I'd be able to tell the difference in a properly controlled test. I do have a frame that's designed for both sizes so maybe one day when I've run out of things to spend money on, I'll buy a wheelset just to test the theory. Or "borrow" ... more »

That's a pretty bloody big battery!

It's something I'd use. I'd love it if something like Scott's twinloc (i.e. not a simple on/off lockout) was compatible with Fox's fully adjustable dampers and didn't limit user tuning options to LSR only.

Thanks for the explanation, I can imagine a significant benefit in being able to ignore the early stroke when setting HSC just for starters.

Bikeradar has its Dorado article up: https://www.bikeradar.com/news/2022-manitou-dorado-fork/"According to Manitou, the TPC+ damper is both velocity and position sensitive." Interesting. Can anyone comment on whether this is a good idea?

I can only assume (and hope) those prices include Germany's 19% VAT.

Fortunately my RSS reader cached the article before it was taken down. It confirms virtual high pivot, didn't give any graphs though. As is traditional, there are three builds, starting at €6200. Interestingly all three have a Fox Factory DHX2, ... more »
Reply to What's with high pivots? 4/7/2021 5:11 AM

The Norco Shore. Its pivot is high enough to require an idler, but not so high (relative to the rear axle at rest) that it has a fully rearward axle path. Edit: Or the 2022 Trek Session, same deal. It's rearward through only the first ~50% of travel. ... more »
