Added a comment about press release Full Details Released: Specialized's Brand New Enduro 8/13/2019 9:28 AM

The components on the non-S-Works builds are pretty disappointing and confusing. At the $6500 build, you get the base Fox Performance (not Elite) suspension, but carbon wheels?

Fair point, a lot of my sentiment is based around the fact my Eagle stuff has been damn near invisible (I don't think about it - it just plain works) to me. That said, it does seem picky with respect to b-tension, and of course if something gets "beat up" all bets are off to...more

Yes mwolpin, AXS is in progress.

Thanks for the history refresher.

Last question - Does Vital have a long-term review of SRAM AXS around the corner anytime soon? Haven't seen any site post one yet.

There was less of an outcry, because at the time, people were still on the fence about the whole 1x thing to start with. SRAM did only roll out the license to a select few manufacturers to start with, but it opened it up fairly quickly after that (note that the XD Driver is an...more

Touche, but I'd argue that was - as you said - ushering in a new era, not improving an already established one.

This is a serious question because I can't remember - did hub manufacturers publicly comment about the XD driver access? At least one, if not a few, have done so about MicroSpline.

*heavy breathing* That line on the side of the jump around the 1:30 mark was really interesting. *heavy breathing*

Gwin's mechanic and Jordi kept talking about a "special" coil in the Dialed series, so this makes sense.

Both the Factory and Performance 36s use the same air springs so this is targeted as an improvement to either fork. No issues swapping back to an OEM air spring. Lots of people started off with Pikes with Luftkappes installed and then replaced it with the 2019 debonair spring when it...more

I have about a year on a Luftkappe and dig it. The review sums up the benefits pretty nicely so I'll add some additional observations.
- The mid-stroke is for riders who like a bit of platform to push on in turns, berms, and jumps.
- The previous hyperactivity of the fork moves from...more

From a Fox perspective, would this further improve a Factory 36 Grip2 system? Or is this more targeted at the Performance tier?

Also, any issues swapping back to the stock system? I know with Push's ACS3 you can't because of internal damage from the coil. Obviously not apples to apples, but curious.

@ardor is right - it wasn't an EWS event. However, the wording in EWS' statement is straight BS. "Let this be a lesson..." Really? As several others have explained, it's a shame that they aren't controlling their own organization/series. I don't see ... more »
