The Unofficial Cycling Code of Conduct
there on are only two fads that drive me nuts. Then again maybe this is part of getting older. 1) wearing cutoff skinny jean shorts for DH...WTF it looks completely stupid and ridiculous and actually hinders your riding ability. (fitted pants for DJ's is understood) 2) unbuttoned flannels flailing in the wind.... please let a big branch grab hold and separate both shoulders while peeling them off the bike at full speed.

Will this M-works program be similar to the older works program? Hopefully being able to order different levels of products with custom shimming spring rates and massaged bushings. Or enven just picking the spring is part of the plan. The 2005 Works 888 was easily one of the silkiest forks ever to date.

How come you don't offer the option to order your higher end Ti forks with spring rate of choice? The most recent fork I've bought, the 888 evo Ti, was every thing I wanted except the stock ti spring was far too soft. So I immediately had to swap to a firm steel. Since certain shops can order direct. Why not offer spring of choice or at least a spring swap program? P.S. I've owned 8 different aftermarket high end products in my day and have loved them all. I swear by your stuff, even during those dark couple of years. Keep it up!

Well if Spec. doesn't resign EC, there will be a fantastic manager up for grabs. Some other team can snatch him up and build success.

Too much outward rotating mass for DH. They have their place but its not in DH racing. Its been dabbled with for a few years now, several companies put them on the market. But it definitely never caught on.

Well, if trek had gone with this layout at least we wouldn't have had to hear "looks like a session" all the damn time. That being said I'm glad they didn't.

I'd say the concept has huge potential but needs refinement
