@WAKIdesigns: Yes. after all our conversations on pinkbike you have converted me to the left! So when do we overthrow the establishment two-sided forks?

I am very interested in this fork. Looks way promising.

@mattwragg: But how similar is this new redesign from the one you've been riding?

April 2016: Good Month or Bad Month
@WAKIdesigns: So believe it or not but Trump has actually said some sane things about US/European foreign policy: "Each of these actions [has] helped to throw the region into chaos and [given] ISIS the space it needs to grow and prosper...It all began with the dangerous idea that we could make Western democracies out of countries that had no experience or interest in becoming a Western democracy."

April 2016: Good Month or Bad Month
@WAKIdesigns: Obama has bombed more countries that Bush did. He's killed more people with drone strikes that have a 90% 'unintended kill rate' (innocent kill rate) than any other head of state in history. He just gets a pass because of his political party. On my 29er, here in the Rocky Mountains, I would strongly benefit from a wider range than 11-42. On this section of a trail I often ride: http://ridewasatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/lance.jpg I easily run out of gears with my 34t ring. Climbing a 29er with 34x42 is not fun, either. Here is part of the climb for that trail (its a loop): https://www.strava.com/segments/1430073?filter=overall It averages 9% grade, with sections that are very steep. I'm OK fit, and its hard to fight the temptation to walk up the tricky climbs. My 34t ring is worn out, so I just replaced it with an oval 32t to make climbs more manageable, so I'm losing even more on the top end.

@TheRaven: that one tooth is a 10% change. I can definitely feel the difference. I have an xt 11-42, and my friend has XX1 on the same bike (enduro 29er), but he as a 30t front ring and I have a 34t and they top out at about the same speed on this section of a trail I have ridden a million times. However, it feels like he has an extra gear and a half when in the lowest and climbing, due to his smaller front ring. A 10% change in the front is near going from a 30t to a 34t.

@TheRaven: While I mostly agree, I would still say that Srams cassettes are significantly better than Shimanos; at each level the build quality is higher and the weight significantly lower, as well as having a wider range.

Getting to a large spread isn't that hard, but with 11 speeds you have bigger jumps in the middle than 12 covering the same range.
