Ask Pinkbike: Wide Tires, Dirt Jumper for Whistler, and Trail Hardtails
@WAKIdesigns: This wide rim/light sidewall trend is for people who don't get flats, aka people who go slow, aka people who suck. Asking people what their preferred rim width is or preferred tire casing is sort of a litmus test for whether they suck or not. If you ride real trails with bumps and roots and maybe even rocks and you don't run real sidewalls, you will hate your life. Folding tires in turns can happen on any tire/rim combination, because if you're not folding tires now, you can always run lower pressure and then voila! you fold tires. I wouldn't ever touch a tire under 900 grams, and my preference is 1100. That's a tire you can ride hard and not flat.

@WAKIdesigns: Don't forget that I beat Strobel fair and square a few times. He HATED it.

@WAKIdesigns: expensive garbage. Break easy, cost lots, ride bad.

@shrockie: I'm sure you're right and there's a slight difference between the two, but honestly they look almost exactly the same. I got out a set of calipers and measured as many dimensions as I could on both tires and they were almost identical. Not saying there isn't a difference, just saying A) it's probably negligible or impossible to tell on the bike, and B) the idea that the WT tire "only works" on wider rims is laughable. The tire looks fine on your 25mm inner-width rim.

How Damper Oil Flow Is Controlled - Video
@jimlad: progressive air springs do not only ramp up at end of stroke. That's a massive oversimplification on the part of suspension manufacturers to make the concept easier to understand for average joe consumers. To be sure, if you're running lots of pucks, tokens, volume reducers (whatever they're called), and you're already deep in the travel, and then you hit another bump, the progressive air spring will be massively harsh in response to that new bump than it would otherwise be with a linear air spring. That's one of the reasons why "MORE PROGRESSIVE" isn't the answer for every application: linear air spring curves track better around flatter turns/low traction scenarios because they continue to be sensitive to new bumps deep into the stroke. When you get into the travel on a progressive spring setup it gets harsher and harsher the further you go in. That's sweet if you're blitzing a set of whoops or landing a huge huck to flat, but not so sweet if you're trying to grip it and rip it around a slippery, rooty corner. So like with all things suspension related, you have to find a good compromise in your air spring setup.

@VorsprungSuspension. So, to massively simplify: good in theory, impossible to execute?
