great review, worthy of Vital. i've still yet to try Cush Core. do you get a lot of similar benefits from CC in the front tire?

that set up would have such a slack seat tube, and he runs his saddle way back on the rails. clearly he just don't care!

"We worked hard over the last three years to combine the features of our competitors, like wider rim widths and better engagement, with the impossible-to-source replacement parts and terrible reliability you've come to know and love from Mavic."

absolutely agree. Very bouncy tires will benefit more (Maxxs exo, Sch snakeskin, Continental Der K/Der .. but when you change from one of these to DD/DH or Sch SG there is a world or improvement in damping/traction from the tire alone... Not saying that cushcore wouldn't be better,...more

Interesting. My only small grumble is that a tyre does have its own damping - from the rubber.
Rubber dampens both the carcass and through the tread itself. Different compounds and treads make easily noticeable differences in tyre dampening

this seems to be Kona's way of thinking. they are very long in the front center but prefer to stick with 66 HTA's .

I love seeing all these "fixes" for Fox and RS products. More reasons I stick with DVO and the OTT.

yeah it's probably pretty good. i was being a bit sarcastic, parroting some of the tall guy comments i've read. it used to be head angle got the first complaint on every new bike review, now it's often STA if it's not steeper than the steepest bikes out there. i would like to try 76 or steeper just out of curiosity as some make such a big deal of it.

I’m a bit surprised the X-Fusion Manic wasn’t included in this comparison. It’s a top performer at a bargain price, with best-in-class reliability. It even has a couple of user reviews on this site (one of which was written by me).

Also, what’s the discontinued,...more

While I understand the engineering behind it I struggle with it. It strikes me as a solution to an invented problem. If linkage driven suspension really is worlds better why aren’t linkage forks being run on works motocross bikes or moto-trials bikes etc. I...more
