I stand corrected! I was looking close at the crowns and was thinking "man, those actually do look different".

Surprised they went to the effort!

Negative points awarded to Jeff.

Hey Jeff, different CSU according to the Vital "First Ride" article linked below:

"the new Z1 houses 36mm stanchions and one of the heftiest crowns found in the industry. The stanchions are made from 6000-series alloy which and are thicker than other 36mm stanchions on the market....more

Good question. I can't imagine fox is making two CSUs just for aesthetic reasons. Maybe I'm wrong. If I'm right and the CSU is the same, then the Push stuff would fit, and it'd also allow a customer to swap to a 37mm Fox CSU if they'd like...

Don't be a dick. This is a good thing, a rider can race every discipline on a short travel 29er now.

Really? I had to run max volume spacers on mine, Deluxe RT shock though.

I'm running this tire combo too! Just the 2.5 aggressor double down...with cushcore (my Sentinel is 35 pounds...)

To be honest, I'm not sure this bike is a good candidate for a coil. The Sentinel isn't, though MT is running one on his. Its pretty flat as far as progression goes. Needs an air boinger IMO.

Few thoughts... 1) Yes, there is likely a lot of cable knock inside the frame. There are a few solutions to this, one involving window lining foam (foam strips) and some strategically placed electrical tape to keep the cables from sliding around. 2) ... more »

"Ride or die" on the top tube, but ROBOTS are curious if Turman's killed anyone yet. Doubtful.

I missed this... FWIW Racerxx276 I feel strongly the Rockshox Superdeluxe is a better shock than the DPX2. The Super Deluxe is more comparable to the Float X2, which is an excellent shock. Still, if I were to pick between a properly tuned Super Deluxe ... more »

That field was a joke compared to an EWS fwiw. Cool looking race, and some decent competition, but nothing like the top 20 dudes at an EWS race.

Hey Tom, XL - I like bigger bikes, but this did not seem remotely on the cusp of "too big".

The Torque makes mellow singletrack boring as it can mute the trail. EG, you aren't going to get that sports car feeling when you pump a roller. This wasn't all bad, and something I'd personally be fine giving up so long as I had more DH bike friendly terrain to also ride.

I haven't ridden the Capra, so sorry, can't compare!

One thing to mention here, rental bikes are usually HAMMERED. The rest I mostly agree with, but on a DH bike I just don't notice shifting or hub engagement all that much. Most stuff I want to ride on a 35-40 pound bike doesn't involve a lot of pedaling. ... more »
