Super Alloy Racing uses different spacers to use the same spring length on different shocks.

Definitely a solid guess given the size of the upper tubes and the Manitou rear shock.

On their Demo, yes, which is why Specialized offers the Demo as a mullet. But I've never seen them on non-29'er Stumpy or Enduros...

German-speaking companies typically have a difficult time writing marketing copy, coming up with names, etc. in English. I know, I work for one.

It's not for anyone on this site. It's for entry-low mid level bikes. They just want to control more of the manufacturing process and not rely on other brands as much.

They invest in their own suspension because why pay someone else when you can make it on your own? This improves their margin/bottom line and they can control more of the manufacturing process improving their delivered quality.

The new XTR hubs aren't dead silent though- that technology never got released. I've heard they are quieter than most, but the "Scylence" technology does not exist in real life.

While this is fine from a standpoint of duty (and I'm sure that Kant is incredibly proud that moral duty has entered the conversation), it's not what Vital wants to have happen. Vital wants traffic to their site, not people purposely avoiding their site because of spoilers or a sense of duty to one's self.

Honestly, I love that Vital now doesn't spoil race results in the title. I honestly would avoid the website in the past because of it. To me, this isn't an "either or" discussion- there doesn't need to be a media blackout over the race results OR full disclosure in the title. Simply leaving out the winner's name from the title & image and announcing "2019 So&So World Cup Final Results" should hopefully work for everyone. I don't think the SuperBowl analogy is accurate because that event is so widespread and popular that the results of it cannot be contained- a headline will not spoil it. But in the case of a downhill world cup race, a headline will spoil it for a lot of people. Simply because a headline can spoil it, it makes sense to leave the winner's name out of the title and I'm glad you have gone down this route. I love Vital, love what you guys do, and always stoked on the content y'all put out. Love and kisses, -nerdy.

I can feel the dust getting into my nose from here...I definitely don't envy Cali's trail conditions
