I haven’t rode either bike but people seem to be loving the new Norco Optic and Specialized Stumpjumper Evo. Both bikes are shorter travel, supposedly climb well and have aggressive geometry which I’m sure you would appreciate coming from a moto background. ... more »

All the input here so far is really good. I would also add go for a few rides that are easy, really easy. Don’t do anything that would have felt even mildly hard precrash. Do that a few times and you will start feeling comfortable again.

Please enlighten the rest of us then. I agree with TEAMROBOT about stiffer suspension and higher bars but braking bumps and blown out sections of trail at high speed are rough.

Added reply in a thread Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 7/23/2019 9:13 PM

I think damping is more important. It’s pretty easy to get your spring rate correct, coil or air. Turning all those knobs can get confusing. I’ve also noticed that unless the trail is short and your shuttling it’s difficult to pinpoint specific changes ... more »

I think making it so it doesn’t fit coil shocks and high volume air shocks was intended. It’s not like this was slapped together in a weekend. I really don’t get why though, same with the Bronson. Maybe it’s to encourage the hard charging coil shock riders to be on a Nomad or Megatower?

Thanks for the info guys. After reading the replies has anyone tried Double Down casing back to back with DH casing?

I went to the bike shop today and was kind of amazed and overwhelmed by the choices I had with just Maxxis tires: Exo, Exo plus, Double Down or DH. Then do you want to add Cush Core? I’m curious what other are running, riding style, terrain, what you ... more »

Wonder if the spring part of the shock is designed to take side loads while there is a separate damper just for dampening. Wasn’t Ohlins saying it was difficult to design a shock for mountain bikes because it’s structrual and a dampener? This could be ... more »

To all you guys talking about self adjusting electronic suspension. What if it was set to adjust at a certain GPS coordinate? Basically set way points down a track and then program the suspension. It would only work for racing but it could be a large ... more »

I have a Devinci Spartan that I like but have a few things I dislike about it. I would like something like a Santa Cruz 5010, Evil Calling or Transition Scout, basically fun but also more on the trail side of the spectrum. Big question is if I get a ... more »

It really looks like an FSR design with linkage driving the shock.

I'll agree on the digging part and for towing kids. Kind of agree with the getting less fit people active, getting unfit people way the hell out in the woods is not good. And lobbying? I think that's most people's biggest concern is that other users view them as electric dirt bikes, which they are. Where I'm from if someone won't pedal to top their lobbying power isn't needed for mountain biking.

Really? Sure it gets you up the hill faster but there is no way it handles better going down hill. A lot of us don't mind the up hill part of riding. And if I want to shuttle or ride a chairlift I'll just do that.
