Anyone have any experience or knowledge of the new features of the Fox forks lower leg bypass channels and bleeder buttons ?


Wondering if it is worth ponying up for or just buying a 2021 fork at discount price .

I have a ‘21 38 and a ‘20 34, both with grip2. they feel pretty similar, travel and stiffness aside. unless you “need” a 38 i dont see a point in going with a ‘21 over ‘20 if you can keep damping similar

I forgot you’re in colorado. I know you do some gnarly long rides so the bleeders might be helpful if you climbed up above 10k feet or something.

Climbed to 10,000 today, was sublime 2 to 3 inches of tacky snow everywhere above 8,000'....

Anything new guys?

Heard the Megatower V2 might be coming out in the middle of 2022.

I heard the Blackbox RockShox components that have been seen on all Pro bikes will be released around March. New coil shock, air shock, and new Charger 3 damper?

That's what I noticed. Look at the pivot near the axle compared to the current one.

also looks slacker but can't be sure with him sitting on it

Hope it is, the current Strive's geo is pretty dated. I thought that Canyon might be replacing it with the current Torque, which you can get in 29/29, 29/27.5, and 27.5/27.5, with 170/170 travel, I believe?

The blacked/greyed out parts of the frame have me most curious...are they just hiding the Canyon name and model? or is there a carbon change to some tubes and this is a mule?

(it's a high pivot) thoughts?

PinkBike updated their own post and Norco basically confirmed it was a test mule for them?
