EWS Prototypes: Ohlins Downhill Fork
Messy, I dare to differ. Forks like 40 have plenty of sculpting on them to make them look more sexy. A part of tailoring also takes into account user friendliness (external dials, instead of technician/mechanic playing with your shims) and large scale production (tolerances)

All I asked you people for was a unicorn with a freaking dressing spraying penis - apparently my colleague over here informs me that I can't have that, throw me a freaking bone here... what do we got?

Fizik Kurve Seat - Review
@mikelevy, many quasi roadie magazines from Europe write articles on importance of saddle comfort for man's contact patch and nearby areas. Is PB considering writing something on that front?

Gabriel - kitchen scale is an irrational approach to the same extent as someone claiming that additional plushness of USD fork or open bath system can make him faster. Gee Athertons Fury weighs almost 36lbs, that is in the era when you can take Session 9.9 under 30lbs with dual ply tyres.

I used to be in "the stiffer the fork, the better" club, until I rode Shivers several times. Weight is an issue as MTB is a sport revolving more around kitchen scale than around the ticking clock, but realistically speaking, this is not a fork for Multistage XC Marathon, where 1lbs weight penalty may be seem like a lot on 3000th foot of climbing on the fifth day of the race. This is for freaking gravity-assisted riding, which most of us put emphasis on, it may even do for 160 single crown Enduro fork.

Exactly @scottzg. I bought a Ferrari 458 and paid for insurance, gee how much gas this thing eats! Got to start saving money, no more eating out

The big question is whether stiffness of current standards DH forks is a good thing. I heard a thing that makes sense to me: all those huge stanchions like Marzo or Fox are made so stiff in order to minimize their bending during G-outs, so that they slide through bushings with less resistance (32 uppers of Boxxer sometimes were not sliding in at all) If it were to be the case, then the overall stiffness is not the priority in STD fork design, rather a close side effect. It is hard to say how positive or negative beyond which threshold. Recently I had Shiver SC fork installed on my HT, now I run 36 lowered do 130mm. Both have no low speed compression what so ever and I run them at similar SAG. Witht his precondition I claim them ready for qualitiative comparison :P Shiver seems to track better through rockgardens, seems to be evidently better on off cambers, I feel less bounced around. I do not ride any higher speed stuff so it is very hard for me to comment on eventual problems with G-outs in corners. I cannot comment on cornering grip. Nevertheless on my trails I got used to flex in corners very quickly, it became a non issue and I can still pump the bike doing S-turns on flat ground. So I'd say that for me USD design inspires confidence in many areas.
