My previous metric related post got down-voted into oblivion probably because it was viewed as being anti-metric. That wasn't the point. Instead it was meant to call attention to how the term was being used simply to make a new roster of sizes more palatable to consumers. I suppose it had to be called something though.

The old shocks were spec'd in metric too. The roster of sizes in the new multi-manufacturer standard is not more or less metric than the legacy sizes. Well, other than them being round numbers of millimeters. This got downvoted probably because it was viewed as being anti-metric. The post wasn't anti-metric, it was criticism of misusing the term in an attempt to make the standard more appealing to consumers.

@RollinFoSho: A conversation is being had about the merits of trunion mounts on this bike. Ironically, you're the one whining rather than joining the level headed discussion. It honestly would be interesting to read an analysis of the pros/cons of this design.

I'm a fan of the possibilities trunion mount shocks open up for pivot placement etc. Ironically, it looks unnecessary on this frame. Is there a reason to use one otherwise. My assumption is that they are more expensive.

Metric shock? More like a round number shock.

Nothing about these shocks is any more or less metric than the previous shocks

"Metric standard shock", still a bullshit term.

This is great to hear. It would have been easy for him to volunteer nothing. Instead he risked loaning to a stranger. In doing so, someone went home with a life-long memory of being helped by a stranger. Both probably started the next workweek feeling positive. Pay it forward...
