Evil Following V3 - Trust Message - The Full Dave Weagle experience

Sick dude! Ran the same set up for awhile. Maybe not the sexiest looking fork but nothing beats them for certain terrain. You can place your front tire anywhere and it just tracks.

PIT BITS - Tennessee Nationals - Matthew Spong's Custom Hand Guards

I run the AVS guards here in the desert and they've been saving my hands for months. They might look dumb but they serve a purpose. Not sure about these bad boys, wouldn't want to get caught in them when I crash.

i think that's a bit of a stretch. i had 3 of those and rode them all over North America and Europe in all kinds of conditions. As long as I wasn't trying to stuff a big 2.5/2.6 in the back in muddy conditions it wasn't an issue.

The Ripmo 2 is cool but there is something about the AF that's really special. Killer build.

Added a comment about press release Meet the Shout: Longer-Travel Multi-Link Front Suspension from Trust Performance 9/8/2019 10:30 AM
eRod

Of all the bike parts I've purchased over the years, the message is the only product that has actually made me significantly faster. It isn't plush, but it isn't exactly harsh like some reviewers said. I've got 300 hours on one in all types of terrain. If you want to go faster with more control then you should get one. Not a cheap upgrade by any means but it does exactly what they claim. I'm excited to see what the shout does for bigger bikes.

I can’t disagree with you there. On the following mb the axle to crown of the Message works well. It’s right on par with what I had on there ~535mm. I mounted it on an Offering and it worked also but that bike was too big for me. I’d need to go to a small and try again. I don’t see how it could work well on a ripmo or sentinel where a 160mm fork is recommended. Not because of the travel but because it is just a much shorter fork axle to crown so you’re bb is going to be a lot lower. Not without a spacer under the head tube like you said. easy to have one made. I spoke to a guy about having some machines last week and so I’m going to experiment a bit. I do think people who aren’t having good experiences are not using the fork on the right bike (too short axle to crown-wise) or they aren’t setting them up properly. You have to forget everything you know about fork set up. I made that mistake and then was set straight by one of the guys at trust and it made all the difference. I also felt like it broke in nicely after a bit.
