I work at a residential treatment center for middle school kids. I am also a dad and husband and as a result I spend more time thinking about riding than actually doing it.

Congrats. You've captured exactly how we all feel about getting a new bike!

It should fit fine but the uturns are all limited to 160mm. There was a german company making a mod to increase it to 180 or 170 (for lyrik or domain). I bought one for myself and my brother. It worked out nicely.

First Ride: Whyte T-130C
The issue is whether it is noticeable or not. I don't think they teach that in statics. I think a cheap wheel will be noticeably stiffer, but high end wheels are plenty stiff already, to the point where it won't feel any different compared to a 142 rearend.

I may just not be picky but the bike I have now is pretty close to perfect. It doesn't feel heavy, slouchy, touchy, or anything else. In fact I have had two bikes now that while I was riding them I forgot every complaint and just loved it. Seems like a good relationship. When you are doing it right you stop thinking bout other possibilities and just enjoy the one you are with.

The coil uturn was always so reliable, but my style and skill level being what they are I tend to like a 67 degree head angle whether going up or down. I am neither a great climber nor descender, but I can have fun doing either with my bike as it is.

Fox Racing Shox Acquires Marzocchi
Toyota owns one sixth of Subaru. They worked together to make a car. I was saying that if Toyota bought Subaru it would be like fox buying marz. A huge company buying a niche company. Fox owns raceface and Easton. If they bought box components they would have full componentry setups like sram, but with even more market share, greater diversification, and a pile of cultist followers. I expect to see them buy someone who makes shifters and brakes very soon.
