Fabric Scoop Radius Seat - Review
Is it also so that they can Charge(bazing!) more? Cause I sure as hell didn't pay $80 for my steel railed scoop, & could have paid even less if I hadn't bought it at the LBS.

Deals Galore: Over 60,000 Bikes and Parts for Sale on Pinkbike's Buy/Sell Page
Would really like to be able to sort shocks by stroke/eye to eye. at least it looks like the search can take dots finally, not being able to competently search for something line "2.5" was a nightmare for looking for the right size shock.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
$500 is more than I would pay to find a old RC2X damper by far, though.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
No, there was only ever one damper setup for Shivers, & two models, single crown & dual crown. the didn't make them anymore in '06(though you could still buy new old stock from previous years production runs,) which was the first year they had SSD on ANY fork.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
@game : I've been riding a shiver for 10 years. I've had it apart many, many times. the cartridges are simple rebound affairs. There's an oil port in the lower part of the cartridge, & you can adjust it's flow rate via oil viscosity, but there's no shims or anything else than can change flow based on shaft velocity. AFAIK, the first speed sensitive 'zocchi damper was the RC2X, which they introduced on the 888 in '06.

Pinkbike Announces 'Trailforks'
Thanks for recognizing that trail association legitimacy isn't necessarily tied to IMBA membership.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
This seems completely different on the inside than a Shiver. Shiver's had simple adjustable rebound carts, no compression(unless you did old school moto tricks like adjusting the oil weight to gain your desired amount of compression, but that's not speed or position sensitive.) This has an air spring, with a negative spring(that has it's own separate preload) speed sensitive compression, & if I remember correctly, speed sensitive rebound(just like the dual flow rebound on a Mission control DH damper, where it's speed sensitive, but only the high speed is adjustable.)

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
It's true, I'd love to have one, but they've priced it out of my range. So I'll just keep running my Shiver, though I've thought about trying to retrofit a 'zocchi compression damper to it, like one out of the 888 RC2 or similar. But realistically, that fork is sitting in the closet ATM, because modern 160mm bikes allow me to do almost everything I did on a DH bike 10 years ago. Much more likely to give DVO money for a diamond (or possible inverted single crown.)

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
My favorite MTB video of all time, Halfway to Nowhere, is my favorite precisely because it combines interesting filming with people ripping real trails.
