Exclusive: Sam Hill's Secret Weapon
Hill runs deemax ultimates, I'm sure it will work with them.

First Look: Diamondback's Affordable Downhiller - the 2015 DB8
I've owned several pre 2010 Avid brakes (Code and Juicys) and they were all good. I very rarely needed to bleed them, they had good power and excellent feel, I couldn't ask for any more than that. I owned a set of 2012 Avid X0s on code calipers, really good feel and power when they worked but air would mysteriously get in and then the lever bodies started coming apart so I replaced them with shimano Zees which didn't have as good lever feel but still had the power, they weren't the most reliable and needed bleeding very often, so I changed the lever bodies for XTR race which don't have servo wave so feel as good as the avids and they have been reliable so far. Also have owned Hayes Nines which were bullet proof and formula Rx's which I wouldn't recommend as they lack good feel and power.

The funny thing is you'll find people complaining about every make of brake and saying how good the brand they choose is. I like shimano brakes but I just wish they would ditch servo wave or make it in such a way as it doesn't affect the brake lever feel.

Manitou Mattoc Pro - Review
I was on about the 888s, if you like them then fair enough I just couldn't get on with them no matter what I did and then the stanchion coating flaked off. So I got a warranty set and sold them, one thing that might be worth doing is getting your Marzocchi tuned as I'm sure that would dramatically improve that characteristic.

Manitou Mattoc Pro - Review
I wonder if it would be possible to run different stiffness's of foam to alter the way that the fork reacts?

Manitou Mattoc Pro - Review
Axle to crown on the 26" mattoc is 545mm in 160mm travel, the old fox 36s were 545mm in the 160mm position but I believe they dropped it by a few mm this year. So the Mattoc's aren't like the older reverse arch Manitous that were a good amount taller than other forks on the market.

Manitou Mattoc Pro - Review
No offence but the RC3 evo v2 was a bit of a flop in stock form, lacked control through the midstroke then would ramp up stupidly fast and the compression adjuster was annoying as you would adjust it to increase low speed compression but the way it worked the high speed compression would be made less the more low speed got wound on. Changed to Dorados, best decision ever.
