Hi, team. Corporate muckety-mucks told me I have a mandate to help empty your wallets. Fortunately that aligns with my own moral imperative. And for some reason they’re going to pay me to cruise deal sites and pass on things that I think are cool.
For those of you that agree with my exquisite taste, hit the link. And guess what, should you decide to pick something up, Pinkbike gets a small kickback. The pennies and dimes that we collect goes to doing cool stuff like running a race team, keeping Levy caffeinated, and getting Brian more 3D printer filament.
For those of you who aren’t interested, I’ll see you in the comments, dressed in armor made of old half-link BMX chains.

They should really just make a proper 29er Status.
Are these tires even inflatable? I see no valve.
I think the type of riding makes a big difference too. I never shuttle or ride bike parks, so the shock shouldn't have to work TOO hard.
From VitalMTB Forum " Low maintenance and reliable suspension." Post by member-Brash
" I have a tendency to keep buying bikes with a Yoke driven clevis, as a result of my fine decision, I've blown up my fair share of shocks.
Specialized Enduro EVO - Several Ohlins TTX22M's, mostly seal head failures, one snapped shaft. Surprising considering the damper shaft thickness on them (Yoke driven clevis)
Specialized Demo 8 Sworks (201 - Again, TTX22M's, only one failure, the shock actually un-threaded from itself! I snapped 3 of those frames lol, so shocks weren't all my problems, The rose joints (bearing eyelet) popped out constantly. I ended up going back to standard bushing/spacer arrangement with Specialized approval.
Stumpy Evo (2019) this is where it all went bad. Again Yoke driven clevis.
- 2 Fox DPX2's
- 3 Cane Creek IL coils. CC were fantastic, they really worked WITH me and wanted to resolve the issue. In the end they gave me a DB Air CS for my troubles, which was trouble free. With lots of back and forward to their engineers they ended up developing the "yoke approved" IL coil which was great news for all I thought, hats off to Cane Creek
I've also had Trunnion mounted shock bikes that killed them fast.
For forks, had very good luck. I converted one Fox 36 to coil with the vorsprung kit, you could service that once a decade with the amount of oil it holds!
Take note, I'm not fast, rather a intermediate rider at around 95kg (210lb?) Shit happens, but seems it happens to me a lot."
…except components, that they’ll swap out for budget versions*just before you take delivery and then charge you $100 more on top… yeah I’m still bitter about it.
