EWS Prototypes: Ohlins Downhill Fork
My old hannebrink 9" invereted fork used a 25mm axle. That thing makes the most badass wall decoration for my bike workshop. It was insanely smooth and light for its time.

That and forge the upper tubes and lower crown as one piece in the same way that non-inverted forks have forged lowers. That's _much_ lighter than extruded tubes and clamped on crowns. Of course the upper crown will have to remain clamped on to allow insertion of steer tube through frame. In my opinion this is very far from a production model.

Injury Update: Myriam Nicole
Nice try, but it was never suggested those places are boring. Rather, it sounds boring if you've never seen anything like that jump. The same thing will happen on any jump when you come up short with the bike pointed upward like that. You're going to get bucked over the bars. The design of this jump had nothing to do with her crash. Myriam just hit it at the wrong speed and launched it at a bad angle. I hope you heal quickly Myriam!

Seriously, you've never seen a jump with more than one lander option? Sounds boring.

ZEP's How-To Mythbusters - Climbing Technical Terrain
Yep. Singlespeed riders spend much of the ride out of the saddle. It's a different muscle group for sure. Once developed, it is possible to mostly stand and peddle for hours.

ZEP's How-To Mythbusters - Climbing Technical Terrain
Blahblahbikes, read what you're replying to again. I didn't criticize the author or say his advice was wrong. There was no negativity in it. This is simply a discussion of riding techniques and why sometimes various techniques are necessary. :)

First Ride: Bold Linkin Trail
Do we know it is not an advantage? What if the shock can go 3 or 4 times as long without maintenance? What if the shock stays perfectly tuned because the seals work better? What if the stiction can be drastically decreased by using different material that otherwise wouldn't stand up to the grit of non-sealed environment? There are some interesting implications to this design. I'm curious to see the results after people have a few years of experience with it.

ZEP's How-To Mythbusters - Climbing Technical Terrain
These aren't really myths being debunked but rather taking a library of various riding techniques and applying them to the local terrain and trail system. The advice is good for some areas but different advice would be useful in others. Around here trails are packed with short but incredibly steep climbs. Sitting on the nose of the saddle and leaning forward isn't always enough. Pulling on the bars is mandatory. And when leaned that far forward on a steep climb, your chest is close to the bars. When that close to the bars, elbows must be bent nearly all the way. If not holding your arms in, this results in your elbows flaring outward, making a wide riding profile. More importantly, it also tweaks your wrists to an extreme angle. The solution to that is to hold your arms in, keeping the wrists straight and your elbows away from trees on the side of the trail.
