Katy Winton's Factory Trek Slash 29 and Remedy 27.5 Race Bikes
Looks like you could have quite the session with those two bikes. ...I'm so sorry.

The Coastal Crew: Skeptical - Video
E-bikes might not find a very warm reception in the MTB community, but as an alternative to driving your car to work, e-bikes are legit amazing. If more people had e-bikes and used them as an alternate to driving as much, we'd all be looking at a massive decrease in carbon emissions. Sure, mountain biking on sweet ass trails on an e-bike is a bit unsavory, but as a replacement for driving places they're more economical, better for the environment and wildly convenient. There's a time and place for e-bikes, this might just not be either.

Yes, obesity--a decades long public health epidemic--is an epidemic because of an industry that has yet to find any mass audience in the US to date.

I love the overreach that the MTB industry is shoving them down our throats. As if there's some mob presence at every bike shop forcing you to buy an e-bike. If you don't want it, just don't buy it. They're never going to come within miles of replacing a regular mountain bike. Stop with the drama queen victimization.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 3 - Air Springs and Volume Spacers
@VorsprungSuspension: Well damn Steve, way to outclass me on this post here. I feel like a jackass now. I appreciate the offer but everything worked out ok in the end after a tense back and fourth between OGC and the shop. It was just off-putting after hearing such great reviews of your business from everyone I know who's gone there and then have my shock situation go from zero to "voided warranty" so quickly. The crux of my frustration was hearing you guys voice concerns of submitting a shock to OGC disassembled and that it might cause warranty problems, and then ignoring your own concerns and handing me a disassembled shock anyway. Given your epic customer service here (and thanks for the personal message as well) you have very much changed my opinion of Vorsprung. That was about a year ago? Year and a half? I'm surprised you remember the exact shock, because that's precisely what the issue was. I'd recommend you to just about anyone, but proprietary shocks in general, maybe not so much. Thanks for the response and my apologies for airing my dirty laundry in public like this.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 3 - Air Springs and Volume Spacers
I went to Vorsprung once. They took apart my shock, a Fox DRCV ReActive proprietary number for my Remedy. They thought they couldn't fix but tried anyway. They could in fact, not fix or service it. They wondered if it would be a big deal if it was taken apart before sending it in through the warranty program (OCG) to the people who can for sure fix these. They took it apart and did NOT put it back together and handed me my disassembled shock in a plastic bag. Once I did send it in, it turned out that it was in fact a big deal that some jackasses had tried and failed to fix the shock thus voiding my warranty. The shop I had to go through went to bat for me since they suggested Vorsprung in the first place as a quicker solution than the OCG mail in program. It ended up ok in the end but going through these guys was a terrible experience that almost cost me an entire shock. Overall terrible work from Vorsprung, terrible advice and terrible customer service. Obviously they're good at suspension tech in many ways, but a huge shitshow and in my opinion, the epitome of too-cool-for-you Whistler bullshit.
