Event Preview - Crankworx Les Gets 2016
@cains08: That's probably just a photo of the piste map at the lift. I'm not sure there is a VTT equivalent in full board size.

Ask Pinkbike - Metric Shock Fitment and Rear Hub Spacing on DH Bikes
@jaame: I wish that was true buddy, but I'm not seeing any noticable reduction in anything new that's 26 related. More used options on Ebay etc but the new stuff is still what it was so I'm not expecting to have the pick of a whole lot of cheap shocks, ever!

Ask Pinkbike - Metric Shock Fitment and Rear Hub Spacing on DH Bikes
@jaame: We personally have 5 full-suss bikes between us, 3 no longer have the original shock (for various reasons) and we have 3 spares that cover all the bikes due to the same eye to eye. I'm not saying this is the norm but I think a lot of people change their shock out from the original.

Ask Pinkbike - Metric Shock Fitment and Rear Hub Spacing on DH Bikes
@ka-brap: The boundries of geometry and other performance factors of mountain bikes have been pushed to such an extent that in ten years time I don't think they'll be massively different from what they are now. What that means, to me, is that unless you want to change your bike for reasons other than aesthetics a frame of today will still be a very valid weapon in a decades time. We still use a Specialized Pitch from 10 years ago and unless you race and care about extra seconds there is absolutely nothing wrong with it if you put it up against current bikes, and I expect it to be still decent in another 10 years time. I fully expect to be seeing plenty of today's bikes still rolling around in 10 years, unless Rockshox's evil plan works and people can't get shocks for them.

Ask Pinkbike - Metric Shock Fitment and Rear Hub Spacing on DH Bikes
@mikekazimer: The long term is all current frames, and a lot of full sus ever built before them, will become obsolete as far as buying a Rockshox shock. Rockshox say they spoke to frame manufacturers whilst developing the new metric shocks to 'get them on board'. I bet they fxxxxxg did. Hopefully Fox, Canecreek etc. Won't follow suit so people won't be forced to scrap old frames because new metric shocks won't fit. We have three capable 200x57 shock using bikes, that we have no intention of ever getting rid of, so unless Rockshox will still be making imperial shocks along with the metric they could become unsustainable in the not too distant future as far as Rockshox are concerned.
