DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
if Protour was really into his example he'd be sporting a Lefty. Bushings further apart are easily achievable at minimal weight increase, you can see that in case of 36 180mm. The only reason they aren't is the marketing point of lower weight and every gram counts. With all due respect that is not a fault of companies but of people who will always measure top end product's performance in grams. Sure, you could make a point about stiffness and reach people with it, but that would require another point on the list of features of each fork and that would be a number determining the stiffness. Maybe there should be one. Right now, in many cases, right on the top, before you see how much travel any RS fork has, you see weight and then your eye is caught by aesthetically pleasing icons with anagrams, showing "technologies" used in the fork. We are not going to kill all those weight weenies aye? :D

Doing it Our Way: Trek Factory Visit
What you are doing is you are dehumanizing people in Asia and in what you see as opressing part of the world. There are no capitalists or communists, they are humans, your classifications and generalizations simply fail to honour the uniqueness of a human being. You have also no experience, you just read certain type of literature, watch certain youtube videos. I have been there and I realised that I am no better than. What is ironic is that you prop production in a country that is the very essence of consumerism, in many ways. a country Until you get that you will just be I have talked to Chinese owned company making carbon stuff and they were just people. You should also take Carl Sagans "blue dot" idea and realize that in 100 000 years the environmental issues you advocate for, will all be nothing more than life-form induced climate change. If you looked from hostorical and geographical perspective of the whole planet you'd see that what happens is nothing short of NATURAL. In the vast space no one can hear you scream. If you truly care then have no children. Contemplate that issue that environmentalism is motivated subconsciously by need of preserving human species, not ONLY holistic approach. No ideology will ever teach you that

fritzstyler - I've played that card three years ago. Since then I learned that there are stricter environmental regulations on Taiwan than in US. I live in Sweden, world's hub for pseudo-environmentalist, leftist, couch activist, green-labeled consumerism, where farmers use more sht on their crops than exploited people in China.Stop reading CHOMSKY!!! :D

I love tht time of the year - lovely colors, everything is slippery in a predictable way, and mud pools aren't as big and as deep as in the spring

Video: Downhill Unicycling, Apparently It's a Thing
Unicycles will never catch on because the evil industry will never promote it, I am sure they will do a lot to stop it. You can always earn more on two wheels and everything that happens between them has to be more complicated by nature. Don't believe the hype! All they want to do is to steal our money.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
therook110 - There is only one problem with the synthesis of your idea that Emerald is unnecessary to exist on earth because a 14yr old Shiver suffices for you - there are not enough Shivers for all of us - buahahah :D So... as with all idea like yours - enjoy it, and don't tell anyone. Someone has to buy new forks so that people like you can buy them on second hand market for pennies. I won't buy their Enduro fork because I tend to buy barely used 3 year old forks for 30% of original MSRP, but I am genuinely thankful to everyone who eill buy it first hand and will barely ride it (and service it often). As to DVO - I think it is a kind of compliment that people still use your fork after 14years and they are happy with them. Not many people can say that about 32 Boxxers, pre 2010 Fox 40s Travises or Shermans DC.

Ask Pinkbike: Rim Width, Angle Headsets, and Carbon Cranks
Ahhh and I usualy fail to grasp particularly your point of view, as you base most of your opinions on stuff that happened looong time ago, like the time you judged 26" wheels by riding your FS bike from 90s. I rode several 650B bikes, including total porn, like carbon SC 5010 and high end Jekyll, and I think of you everytime I sit on one - what a load of bollocks, waste of time and resources they are. Poor Kirk, he made an excellent thing, wide rims at staggering low weight, that actually hold up to abuse, why blur it with that diameter crap, why, just to lower the BB, because a bunch of morons aka buying force did not want to learn pedal stroke timing. If only he focused his efforts on width/weight ratio we'd have those things popular ages ago. Instead we got bullied by Mavic you praise and their idiotic 17 and 19mm XC rims

Ask Pinkbike: Rim Width, Angle Headsets, and Carbon Cranks
And you are basing that on an article from 20 years back, interesting. As to their wheels, only a fool would buy them considering that their rims are avaliable to buy as spare. Mavic has enough sins in hubs department, Shimano... go to the closest workshop and ask about axles and freehub bodies in their 142x12 hubs... some companies like Easton haven't learned anything through many years, they simply rely on warranty. For MOST mass produced brands, warranty returns and recalls are worth it. If it wasn't so, even for smaller companies, Evil would not exist anymore. There are areas of science called "risk assessment". Testing is next to worthless when faced with another "modern" branch of science: quality control. Some people are unfortunate to grasp the fact that Physics of MTB design have to fight with psychology, public relations, risk assessment, quality control and the simple bad luck or data manipulation. Science has replaced Church - people eagerly seek a man who will tell them a complicated story on how the world works and their lack of knowledge in a specific area forces them to use faith, a belief that what he says is true.
