Marzocchi and Fox - What's Happening Now?
They only need to do 2 things. 1) brand new z1 ie take the 350, tweak the shit of out of it and cap the travel at 150 and keep the price below the pike/yari if it has the classic marzo feel with some climbing ability its be a winner. 350 should not be a £600+ for when the likes of a mattoc can be picked up for £350. 2) bring back the 66, 35/38mm single crown long travel (160-180) with air and coil options again below the price of a 36 or lyrik. it needs to be what the original 66 was ie a beast Bomb proof, long service intervals, easy to service when required, an acceptable price and not too far off the mark when it comes to weight and they'll sell like hot cakes. Sadly this is everything fox is not, id love to see marzo make a come back but i think we'll see history repeat unless they really move back to the drawing board and remember why people bought marzo in the first place. i.e forks that can take serious abuse and not bat an eyelid

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
Thats fine Thom, i have a lot of people i know who have the total opposite opinion and are hardtail only . All i will say is from the people i know who ride, generally the ones that put a lot of time in on hardtails (mainly because back in the day they couldnt afford FS) are the faster riders. You can debate the reasons why forever and a day but thats the general trend that ive seen, so IMO there is some truth to this whole ht theory. Maybe not as much as everyone makes out but there is some truth to it. I also do think people should start off on a HT, in the same way you dont start off on motor bikes buying a 1200 cc super bike, its gonna end in tears as you dont know how to handle the damn thing :P

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
Lol some people do ride rigid and enjoy it, horses for courses. Fs are fun too just generally more expensive to run and id say overall i have a bigger grin on my face after a spin on the ht. Nowt wrong with having either so lets all just chill out. As to why fs ? Generally people have full sus for comfort, and i by this i am talking about the vast majority of uk riders who are not out hitting super gnarly shit but just trail riding. Fs defo is an advantage for dh and the gnarly stuff, a hardtail is never gonna keep up on there (fun to give it a go tho).

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
People like hardtails cuz theyre just plain fun ,maybe slower i dont know i couldnt give a shit i just tend to have fun on mine. Also find it a bit of a challange to try and keep up with the full sussers. And you can argue til blue in the face they are defo less maintenance/ cheaper to run than a full sus so long as your not buying cheapo alu frames that snap every 2 seconds

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
My only complaint about the new blue pig is the frame pricing. 100 bucks more gets you a stanton made from 631 and same geo, for 20 bucks less, you can have a cotic bfe with some 853, although you lose the bolted rear end, and a hope headset. Why do they want so much for generic 4130? Even the piglet is more expensive than the bfe

Pinkbike Awards - Suspension Product of the Year Nominees
Do love it, long travel single crown never went away and any body that wanted a burly trail bike has been using 36s or lyriks with the travel dropped for years. Also, love the fact its a pic of a YARI

Final Fireworks Show - Eurobike 2015
Haha, usual comment from someone that obviously hasnt ridden one, proper single pivot is much more playful than anything else just have to get used to them. plus they don't fall apart after a few months of being subjected to the wonderful british muck. same can be said for the heckler and the old single pivot morewoods too.
