 I dont know why I watched this video, maybe I thought there would be something new in the suspension setup from the previous years. I am so stupid!!!!!

 Hucking without a HARD and STIFF setup is like playing billiards with a rope. Some "rules of life" seem to be interchangeable.

 How do pro's set up their suspension for rampage? I've not watched the video but with 18 feet of travel I expect.
  • + 22
 Yeah, like the days of Bender and 12" travel each end!!! I think these days it's just fackin hard and fackin slow. (Which is coincidentally how I tend stoke the mrs).

 @cunning-linguist: Bender didnt even need a suspension fork, he always landed on the back wheel.

 @owlie: or his feet, or his head, or his back, or his face.... Landing back wheel or landing with any part of the wheels first was usually the biggest accomplishment for him lol.

 Did anyone use Ohlins? I hear is very good suspension.
  • + 2
 I've heard that "some guy" rides fest series on ohlins stuff...
  • + 3
 i actually haven't heard anything good about ohlins from someone who has owned for an extended period to time. once in a while i hear something GREAT from people that "upgrade" to ohlins and say how awesome it is before riding it or after their first ride, but still have heard more bad than good from people that have substantial experience on them

 @dtrotter: asking a friend how he likes a product he just purchased and expect him to say its 'bad or its ok but could be better' (instead of standard 'its awesome best purchase') is like asking Trump if america is better...
