It's an implementation question. More linkages can absolutely allow better control of different variables in suspension design, but it's all about if the designer properly implemented those linkages to do that.

"Specialized recommended 18mm (30%) in the rear which resulted in 206 psi for my 165lb build." I am no math wiz, but 18mm is closer to 11% than 30% of 170mm.

Hell yea. I've been using their gravel tires and been seriously impressed, the only thing that has kept me from getting their MTB tires is lack of aggressive treads.

TBH, I think that this is one of those situations where preconception does not agree with reality. On anything smaller than a full DH bike, I think we underestimate how much of the time we are not at an angle of attack that would place bump forces more ... more »

My takeaway, which may not have been intended, but logically follows from the data, is that the slacker your head angle, the more advantage an inverted fork has.

I think Jordi actually mentioned what typical shaft speeds are for MTB in one of the dialed vids, i know i've heard some figures somewhere. From what a remember, they are surprisingly different from moto or trucks.

interesting, i'd suspected it was a raspi. I'd be more interested in a BoM and a github link to the code with a setup guide.

+1 i'd love to build something like this.

Did you have to wait 8 weeks to get your cranks like I did?

Pretty common. an awful lot of brands don't make a DJ bike, even if they make the rest of their bikes. Unless something has changed since i last looked, Evil is selling a repainted DMR frame, as an example.

Are they a US company?! every time i've looked at trying to get some their stuff, it's only been available on European websites.

Added reply in a thread Are Upside-Down forks really flexy? 1/8/2021 8:30 AM

the seals work better due to always being lubricated. the seals on my shiver needed replacement once in 10 years. as for the other stuff, Primoz rightly noted that a lot of the damper stuff is just a matter of design. what is unique to USD forks: on ... more »

FWIW, having ridden a Shiver for about a decade, I would make the following statements: you could notice the torsional flex in the parking lot, but it never felt like a disadvantage on the trail. if anything, the bike felt like it stayed on-line better, ... more »

talking about the current era. some of the marzo sponsored riders are on grip sweep, some are on grip 2.

Added reply in a thread 2021 Mountain Bike Team Rumors 12/28/2020 1:26 PM

In the case of the sponsored riders, it's sometimes the chassis too. just repainted to marzo colors instead of fox colors (the marzo chassis is a little heavier than the fox.)

Added reply in a thread 2021 Mountain Bike Team Rumors 12/28/2020 11:36 AM

It's also worth noting that under the Marzo paint, depending on the rider (some guys don't seem to care, and you can tell they're running the marzo damper,) they're still essentially riding fox.

It sucks that we not only lost Stevie, but Devinci's commitment to DH, in one moto crash.
