I was assuming, or at least hoping, his "end stroke tuning" line was actually a very dry joke, so my post was intended to be just as dry. That said, a frame should never bottom out on itself unless the shock actually blows itself to pieces as you noted. A shock at full bottom out (no matter what shock) should NEVER cause members of the frame to bottom out on each other for obvious reasons. Also, I find it kind of funny you point out clevis driven shocks as a failure example. While I personally haven't seen these failures, it really doesn't surprise me that there are issues with them. Fastening an extension to the shock inherently increases side loading and the shocks tendency to buckle (note: the driving factor in the Euler column formula, for example, is length).

I can't say I'm a fan of intentionally using a bumper against the carbon frame (or any material frame for that matter) as a means of end stroke tuning.....that just screams bad idea to me. Everything else seems pretty dang nice though.

Wrapping Up the Randoms - Interbike 2014
I just saw a Rotec today at Stevens Pass...it's the first one I've seen in years! I used to want one a number of years back, so I'm excited to see how it all turns out.

I absolutely LOVE these articles and videos that show what goes into the products we ride. These are by far my favorite things to read on pinkbike....must explain why I became an engineer. One day I would like to get my own bike component company going....one day...
