Liked a comment about press release Introducing The RUNT by Diaz Suspension Design 2/4/2019 2:46 PM

The RUNT would allow you to run even lower pressure, giving you a more supple ride. The new spring rate also returns the fork to the beginning softer part of the stroke faster than 0 tokens. This makes the fork much more supple as well without losing support.

I do not believe you should use all your travel on a typical ride. What happens when something not typical happens? You overshoot a jump, come up short or misjudge a drop. I would shoot to have about 1-1/2 inches left over even after pretty big drops or jumps. That way when you do screw up – and eventually we all do – you will bottom out and appreciate that you have a little on reserve.

I've had to keep buying pads for my Montaro because they keep falling apart; I'm shocked that wasn't listed as one of the negatives for this helmet. I don't have a 6D because of weight, and because it doesn't fit my head well. I've had an A1 as well, but the helmet that I like the most is the Forefront. The Montaro gets plenty of ride time and just works, but the Forefront is the one that I'm glad I have.

my heart goes out to his friends, family and everyone in the mountain bike community. always seemed a genuine person--didn't know him but his spirit shined through tv interviews. damn.

my best friend died while we were on a ride together. just the two of us. fucking heartbreaking. this story, along with some beers, brought it all back and now I'm weeping at the bar. May you all find peace and live your life to the fullest.
