Fairclough ran those crowns because Scott wanted to experiment with geometry on their frame. different frames work better with different offsets but the overwhelming majority of frames nowadays are designed to work well with fox's standard offset. Hence the reason Fox makes their forks with that offset. If it aint broke don't fix it.

A cars head bolt is torqued to over 100lb/ft in certain applications. not even close to the probably 10 lb/ft used in this application. With proper application of grease on threads aluminum is perfectly good for this and not a ridiculous amount of $ for Ti bolts.

They look pretty sick honestly. I imagine that's the reason they use the steel bolt on the critical steerer bolt, the pinch bolts around the stanchions don't see much stress. Look at stock fox bolts, small, and don't require much torque.

Video: Times Like These
Look at a "clean" beach in SD and then go to gulf of Mexico and tell me Cali is doing a good job keeping things clean. Its great compared to Mexico but they're so clogged with legislative BS they can't even accomplish tasks anymore. Cali is amazing but there's too many idiots here making things difficult.

Fox Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain 2013 Evolution Series Forks
One of the exact trucks I was thinking of! I've got a 91' Silverado about to break 300,000 miles, only thing that's ever been replaced was the transmission at about 180K. 90's era GM trucks are the best!

Fox Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain 2013 Evolution Series Forks
Can't build great cars ANYMORE. At one point we were pretty good at it. When was the last time Britain put out a car worth driving that they didn't steal from Germany?

I completely agree, best helmet out right now, certainly saved my head a few weeks back, took the impact like a champ, and the crash replacement service is an awesome feature! like rejean said though, the camera tends to wobble a bit, but I tidied mine up with a little electrical tape around the mount and its not too bad anymore.

Fails For Your Friday
I bet you every frame flexes in these situations more than you realize, they just happened to have a decent camera/angle on the crash. gotta give it to him for style though ;P
