New Fork Technology From BOS
Actually Fox does all of the precision machining for internals and all assembly inhouse in Cal. I know that they have the castings and most of the forgings done in Taiwan, but they still do a ton of work in the US. They're the only major suspension player still supporting domestic labor, which is pretty cool when you consider that their pricing isn't much higher then their competitors who have everything done overseas.

I only mentioned the Fox for reference, you won't catch me on electronic anything. I'm pretty sure the main reason the X-Fusion Revel is so expensive is that its made in the USA. Each one is hand assembled in the Cal factory, so there's not much economy of scale. I dig the lifetime service plan. I'm currently on a Vengeance HLR Coil, its a great fork with usable adjustments that actually make a difference when you turn the knobs. What a concept! They are super easy to rebuild also. Tempted to switch to the Revel tho, it sounds like it sound be amazing..

www.prestigemtb.com, site is basic and it doesn't mention Bos but I own a shop in Issaquah, WA and I've ordered from him. His name is Marc and he's been great to work with. He's received the factory service training in France and is certified to perform all maintenance and repairs. If you have a MTB focused shop in your area they can setup an account and get you the product as well. Forks feel firm in the parking lot test but thats because they're properly damped, on the trail it all comes together.

Prestige MTB on the east coast is the authorized distributor and service center. They can handle any service or repair you may need. The forks only need service once a year under hard riding, you can get 1.5-2 years for average use.

Cube, Birzman, Hope - Eurobike 2014
Unfortunately PB missed an important detail I saw on another site regarding the new Hope cranks. They aren't quite ready for sale because they've decided to scrap the polygon standard for splined setup. Apparently it will make the switch to carbon down the road easier. Regarding the E13 polygon system, its a German DIN standard that is used in several industrial and military applications. It would be difficult to pursue any legal action over something so readily available to anyone who wants to use it.

Course Preview: World Cup DH in Meribel
Moto now has live GoPro feed during the races, they can jump to it during the race. That for me is the future of DH coverage, top 10 riders get one mounted up so we can see the spots where setting a camera in the woods doesn't work.

Hopefully they tape it wide and let the riders choose how they want to ride it. Sam Hill and Danny Hart I'm looking at you two to step it up here and show us what you can do with a blank canvas. Should a cracking final round of an already fantastic season. I'd like to see this one become a regular if Schladming keeps getting left out.

FSA K-Force Brakes - Review
For one end only. That's right, for one of these you could have a complete set of XT's with rotors. I love innovation but they need to work on that pricing. Ouch.

Maxima Racing Oils Partners With Kyle Strait and Cam Zink
Rockshox denied warranty coverage for a customer's Boxxer that I sent in due to "incorrect Maxima fork oil being used in the damper", which the customer had used in an attempt to improve the feel. That makes me think that even if Maxima makes some of RS oils, the formula is different. In any case it voided the warranty, which blows no matter which why you slice it.
