Three months, 35 episodes, countless airports, and our behind the scenes World Cup series, DIALED, is winding down for the season. Here's a look at some of the most recent episodes where we dabble in a little bit of everything - track walks, education, and plenty of entertainment.

Set Up Your Suspension Like a Pro

Building off of Episode 15: Jordi's Basic Suspension Setup, Episode #32: Advanced Suspension Setup takes us into what an advanced suspension setup looks like. From what you should be looking for when choosing a good testing location to how you can change volume spacers on your Float X2 - Jordi and Connor take viewers through an on-trail advanced suspension setup on Connor's new ride. Stay tuned for "Part 3" in Lenzerheide, where Jordi will be explaining each individual adjustment in detail!

Tech Tips From the Pros

If you missed it, check out Episode #29: Suspension Pro Tips for some dos and don'ts from Jordi and the FOX tech team at Val di Sole's WC when it comes to your suspension.

Current Episodes

The DIALED crew met up with Factory rider Marine Cabirou and the Scott Factory DH Team for a track walk while Jordi and crew tackle Factory Service day under the FOX tent. Hopefully the riders has better traction than our team did on the slick conditions this weekend.

 Its not quite the beat boxing edit of Loris that people have been asking for, but I did make-up a sound board of Loris noises. You know, to help others when they're having trouble describing their set up issues.

 On a side note if you haven't already, try to get hold of the Vital podcast with Darren Murphy from Push Industries to get a great insight into bike suspension and setup information and tips. Better, worse the same. Awesome.

 Really an awesome and honest podcast. Push guy for example said that regular servicing is by far the most important thing when it comes to performance and Fox/RS are actually putting out awesome products that are perfect for 99% of the riders. Haven't expected such honesty, really appreciate that.

 Maybe instead of making videos you should spend a bit more time on product testing so your customers don’t have to do it for you..?
My brand new dhx2 started pissing out oil 2 days in to a 2 week bike trip. Took it to a suspension service center and they wouldn’t touch it, tolerance issue with the shaft, apparently a well known fault on this years shocks according to them. Great!
Let’s order a new shaft then. No, nothing in stock anywhere in Europe!

Thank you fox for f*cking up my trip!

 Curious what bike you're riding? I've had trouble with my 2018 DHX2 on my Commencal Meta AM v4.2, also a fox service guy at a local race mentioned it being related to the bike linkage design.

 I want that fork. I really want that fork. With E-bike CSU. Also DHX2 is amazeballs. Too bad Fox aftermarket pricing in Europe is for lawyers.

 ah, giving dentists a break i see.

 Not sure if serious...

 Fox is decently priced compared to some suspension systems lately
  • + 2
 @makripper: not in Europe where DHX2 costs more than the boutique stuff like Öhlins, Fast or EXT. Fox 36 costs 1400€ and the price stays up, they get rarely discounted, even year after release. For comparison you get Lyrik Ultimate RC2 for 820€, Pike for 620€, Cane Creek Helm for 900€. Öhlins RXF36 for 900€. DVO Diamond 700€. Only Formula Selva gets close with 1250€.

 @WAKIdesigns: well it's not worth anything near those prices pmsl
  • + 1
 @makripper: they do pop up in random online shops for 900€ but they are rare. You get Lyrik Ultimate for 800€ everywhere. I can imagine paying 900€ for the latest 36. But not 1.4k...

 @WAKIdesigns: yeah for sure! They need to release a rebuild plan like rockshox has. They used to be good but now you need to send it all back and wait a month. Its shit

 @WAKIdesigns: I just tried to get a FOX 36 831 for my DJ bike and they wanted £1297.99 because i wanted a straight steerer and 20mmaxle and they'd need to be built fresh/no current stock. Absolutely crazy. Chose to stick with the 2011 36 floats lowered to 100mm & spent the money on a whole Halo wheel set, hope brakes,Deity bars, chain, Hope stem and a few other bits for my Scott Genius for less money!
  • + 2
 @Jamestyrrell: I bought a barely used 34 CTD for 200$, it is more than stiff enough for DJ. 160 lowered to 110. Remember 32 831? They wanted sht loads for it and it was a noodle.
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: Yeah haha! always had 36's. for 2011 model they're still perfectly working and look nice. Mine was also £200 off ebay haha! no point spending almost £1300 on a fork im going to abuse!

 I thought the 36 HSC only has 16 useable clicks, does that mean even pros (well connor Mcleod) are running mostly open HSC?

 I ordered some volume spacers for my FOX DPX Performance and they were too wide to fit :/
