Added reply in a thread Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 7/23/2019 3:54 PM

I prefer to take all the oil out of my fork and run my spring tension really high. This way the fork never bottoms out and springs back really fast after my gnarly hucks.

I run a higher pressure than recommended by DVO and dial in the OTT for a very supple beginning stroke. Doing so keeps the first 1/3 of the stroke supper supple and the end of the stroke firm, hard to bottom out, and most of all prevents any serious. I also added a few CC's of oil to the air chamber for a little more bottom out resistance. Been running the Diamond since 2015 and have used both 160 and 170mm versions. I bumped up to the 170 on my 2017 Patrol to slacken out the head angle a bit an keep the geo perfect when hitting larger drops and jumps.

Don't worry, I got you covered.

In this feature length film expect to find only ten minute of actual riding. See the same jump from ten different angles in various speeds of slow motion. Wonder if you are watching a nature documentary or a commercial as the shots flip flop between closeups of...more

Yes my diamond has been great. Really like the adjustability of OTT. I think current diamonds offer volume spacers like rs tokens. This RUNT seems like it’d be the ott equivalent of an rs token. Could offer the ultimate in linear/coil like travel if the beginning, mid and end stroke...more

I’d love to try one out! Should I send you my address? I’ll throw it in my freshly rebuilt Diamond.

Well the older you get the more plush you need. Riding those road bikes with flat bars in 87 must of been rough on the bones.

Yes I am jealous there is not one of these sitting in my garage. I am not jealous of how much $$ it takes to go "full-factory" and build such a baller bike. I prefer to sprinkle my $$ over many hobbies and many bikes.

Ha. It's a nice build, no doubt. Baller builds have never been my thing, to each their own. Dude if you were a dentist, the bike would be made of nothing but Unobtainium!! (BTW is have a 2017 Carbon Patrol and love it).

Simao gets my vote. It may not have 12 speed or carbon wheels but it looks like it gets used and abused. I love my 2017 Patrol and don't have any plans to fall for the hype and upgrade anytime soon. #whatisboost

Yesssssss another reputable fork mfg for them to ruin. Bryson Martin probably hasn’t stopped laughing this morning.

On the bright side maybe we’ll see a new player in the suspension market made up of former Öhlins engineers in a few years...

Looks like the casing on that rear tire is getting destroyed. What pressure are you running? Looks like a combo of low pressure and hard packed. I am running the same bike, same rear tire in WT 2.4 and use a Cush Core. After 10 solid days my tire isn't hacked like yours.

+1 Ex-Pro here(shitty one at that). I sold my V-10 last year because the #enduro bike was getting all of the love. Plan is to get a budget DH frame like the Furious, early next year. I have most of the build already and the rest will consist of reliable ... more »

How did you extensively try a DVO when production on the Emerald did not start until late 2013? You posted this review in March 2013.
