SB165 27.5 DH Bike? PIT BITS - Enduro World Series, Northstar

So are some of the pros like Ropo, etc running the DHR II in front because Maxxis is out of stock of the DHF? It's a squarer profile tire so I would think it would be less than ideal on the front?

So the only criteria that anything should be evaluated on is weight and cost? Got it.

Again, I could see it being better for some tracks. But 'world's better' is what I'm not so sure about.

I'm lucky (or rather I have really messed up values) in that I have a few bikes. I can test product back to back on these bikes and report my findings. Its so crazy how much the weather, how many beers I had the night before, how well I slept, my overall mood, how tired I am, how much I paid for something etc can weigh into my opinion of something.

Back to back testing for a baseline is the only way I've really been able to reliably give an opinion worth much of anything.

Oh, and I didn't mean to say "you are wrong". You really just gave me an opportunity to note something about how we currently compare stuff (myself included) and how hard it is to really get good feedback in any action sport.

Maybe I'll go back to college and try to get a grant to study "the placebo effect of new gear wink"

The Luftkappe is great and works as advertised.
But...my opinion is to save your pennies. The Vorsprung Smashpot increases performance through the roof by comparison! I cannot recommend it enough. The extra grip on the front end is immediately noticeable, as is the reduction in hand fatigue. If you're concerned about it being too linear, the bottom-out control range is pretty huge too for controlling that last third of the stroke.
The tradeoff is a minor reduction in front-end feel compared to the Luftkappe-equipped air fork. Little extra weight if you care. I don't. And it's a little pricier.

Coil FTW! Will not be going back to air.
