Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
Life itself is all robbery, and in the end we have nothing left.

To pedal is to breathe, and they are both free.

Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
Everything is relative but not everything is reasonable.

If you can ride it then it's doing its job.

Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
If you look my bikes on my profile you'll see that the sport doesn't have to be expensive. If you are willing to sacrifice some things you will gain others. Life is about balance. None of you are riding bicycles with a balanced axle path so your life is actually completely out of order. What you lack in balance you don't make up for I'm wealth. It's nor about your ride, It's all about the ride.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
I never said I wouldn't ride a lefty, I've heard some good things about the reliability of the new one's and I was impressed to hear about the guy who won a Pro grt DH race on one. There is alot going on in a lefty, but it still has less parts than a Fox Talas. USD forks will never catch on? There are now two companies selling them successfully, and more than a few guys still love their old Shivers. Not for the weight weenie racers, but I would make the claim that most guys who own DH bikes are not racers and are not as concerned about the weight of a fork as much as the performance and reliability. I'm designing a bike using the Emerald for both the front and rear suspension duties. Imagine that. The hype will be off the charts! Perfectly balanced suspension axle path front and rear. Specialized will realize how stupid and unsafe the new Demo is and stop production. Gwin will worship it it like he worships his Bible. Wait till you see it Waki! I'm calling it the Protour Bfarsap.

BUILDER: James Doerfling Riding Huge Lines On Location
"Doerfling, however, is tired of riding featureless steeps. His new goal is to find and descend natural multi-hit lines. It's a difficult search, but it's what he perceives to be the coolest thing to ride on a bike: steep faces with tricks thrown in mid-run." I agree. We need a Canadian Red Bull Rampage.

Waki: "if Protour was really into his example he'd be sporting a Lefty." Nothing wrong with the Lefty, as long as it's reliable.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
Mtbguy87"The picture you showed only shows that the riders rear suspension was bottomed out before the front. How did he land? By his rear being like that he would have landed extremely back heavy. Bottoming out his rear end and pushing his front wheel out making his head angle more slack. The force being put on the fork is in a direction that causes it to bind up. I've seem the same thing done to Dorado's just on the nw cup racing." So your technical description basically consists of "I've seen the Dorado do the same thing", which isn't convincing at all. Non usd telescopic binding also happens sometimes on square-edge impacts where the non-usd fork will flex backwards instead of effectively absorbing the bump, and in some situations will halt the riders momentum, or even worse send the rider over the bars. This is much less likely to happen on a usd fork because of the reduced sheer forces.
