Spring rate is spring rate regardless of what else you do. I remember using this same trick on older DH air forks, where we'd compress them an inch or so with the foot bolt loose and get a slight vacuum effect and a bit more sensitivity. Doing that in this case 1) might also introduce...more

I'd add the need to convert to MicroSpline as a key ding against the group, especially since Shimano is limiting access to a majority of the industry. Not only do I need to purchase all new wheels - or at least hubs -...more

This is a crucial message for young racers to hear- race for the love of it and the fun of it, and don't expect anything in return except the satisfaction you get from having a great time. The thrill of racing and pushing our own...more
