Best upgrade I’ve experienced!! DSD Runt turned a fork i liked into a fork I loved!!! Highly recommend for anyone looking to bring your fork alive. I’ve tested for sram and fox and this is truly an amazing product built by a passionate human that understands the shortcomings of the current designs available.

Actually, it has been out much longer than that. I believe we started working on the RUNT in 2012. The first RUNT was designed for the original Lyrik. We have had a lot of set backs and a lot to learn along the way that have delayed it. We have been selling them locally for a few years but we were not ready as a business to do a national release till now.

I've been discussing the theory of this product with some my customers who are interested in potentially buying one. I think the real challenge is putting it on the right frame. Because the headangle doesn't change as much through the stroke, you don't need a slack front end. If anything, a longer stem and steeper HA seems like it would provide better action. It seems like it was tailor made for bikes like Evil Following, Pivot 429 Trail, Tallboy, etc. I know they want to sell to as many customers as possible, but Trust saying that it will cover travel range from 110-150 seems off base. Even if it rides high in the travel, your bb will drop significantly, wheelbase shortens, stack lowers, etc. Other concern is for dynamic riders who use their suspension to pump/pop/preload off trail features. If it works best absorbing impacts from below but maintains a firm platform from body input, seems like it won't offer as lively of a response as a telescopic fork. As a suspension/linkage/mechanical/Lego nerd I'm in love with the idea, but it seems like it will only be effective for a pretty small segment of the market in its current guise.
If they expand their product line, I'd love to see them execute a dual crown version ala the carbon Maverick DUC32. One piece legs/lower crown, with a machined alloy upper crown. It would look amazing having a straight line from bar to axle, and it probably wouldn't have to be much heavier. With the amount of material built up around the steerer tube, I'm sure they could make that way lighter if the forces were distributed between two crowns.
Just my two cents
