Push ACS3 MSRP is $389USD including spring - Jenson sell it for $309 WITHOUT spring. Our MSRP is ~$315USD including spring. We use hydraulic anti-bottoming so that you don't have a spring plunger physically impacting an air spring plunger mid travel. There are no moving seals to...more

As posted elsewhere: the Push kit is a really good concept - coil performance for the first 2/3 of the travel with an adjustable anti-bottoming system. Fundamentally both the ACS and Smashpot are pretty similar there, and with any given spring rate you'll notice absolutely zero...more

Lots of great options available these days to get more progression out of a coil. MRP and Cane Creek are both offering a decent variety of progressive springs, and EXT and Push both offer hydraulic bottom out on their shocks. Presumably the progressive ... more »

I don't know much about the differences between Pinion and Effigear, but I always wondered why so many gearbox mountain bikes seem to be going with Pinion. The high pivot Effigear design seems superior to me. But even a lot of the high pivot designs ... more »

Maybe I need to experience it myself to see what you guys are talking about, but I've never had a problem getting my dropper to the height I want it at. It's not even something I really have to think about. I can feather my droppers just fine without unweighting the saddle. I can't see how there's much room for improvement there.

To each their own. I would much rather buy two BIke Yokes for the same price and never have to swap a dropper or charge a battery.

So how's the Storia against ELEVENSIX?

Want some more time still to have a better comparison and write something more “formal”. But so far it’s similar to my previous experience having them on separate bikes. The EXT has a slightly sharper feel, as in you know what you’re riding over on the trail, but without it feeling harsh. It feels slightly poppier...more

I think that's a Specialized Eliminator.

Somebody asked him about it in the comments, and Steve said it's an "Accelerometer housing for the datalogger."

Yeah, you might be right. I thought it looked a little bigger at first, but maybe it's just that the bottom of the leg just protrudes a little more. Old: https://cdn.bike24.net/i/mb/78/53/fc/333511-01-d-702162.jpg New: https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p6pb18458946/p6pb18458946.jpg ... more »

Some of the commenters on that article also pointed out that Matt is running a suspiciously high air pressure for somebody his size, and there appears to be some sort of valve or knob on the bottom on the spring-side leg. I wonder if Fox might be moving ... more »

Unfortunately, I can't really see that changing a whole lot anytime soon. 6'4" would put you in the 99th percentile for male height, so there probably just isn't enough of a market for it to cover the development costs especially for smaller brands.

Back in 2000 I was telling people that eventually we'd have bikes with six inches of travel front and rear that pedaled well and weighed 30 lbs. That's what we now have...and I'm perfectly happy with that. Bikes have changed a lot in the last 20 years, but they're...more

LB wasn’t a new bike. It was the same frame with less material...geo is still outdated. The shock has 205x65 engraved on it, and the comment about the 29er fork to keep the bb up, points towards a 29er frame. Would be cool to see a new revolt or undead, this isn’t...more

Got caught in the rain during a ride a few weeks ago and had plenty of clearance for mud build up on my Rune V3. That was with a 2.35 E*Thirteen tire and plenty of sand sticking to the mud. Love the bike, and the only thing I would like to see is an additional...more

What isn't very clear in any of these images I realize is that there is a huge space in front of the bottom bracket for any mud or water to fall out... much like on the Legend. I've been riding versions for nearly three years in Scotland... Trust me, mud is not...more

Ouch, the geo hasn't changed much if you size down. This shock location offers superior performance... (Trust me I would not have released it if it didn't!) in a stronger package with lower center of gravity, there really is no area where the performance does...more
