In episode 16 of Season 2, DIALED switches up the format as Greg Minnaar takes over hosting duties and asks Jordi about early life, World Cup shenanigans and the evolution of suspension settings.

bigquotesThat's kind of been the new era of suspension. In the earlier days, we were so used to running really slow rebound and having more control, but things have kind of changed in the last couple years. It's a lot, faster, a lot stiffer. -Greg Minnaar

 Interesting comments about rebound speeding up significantly over the last couple years....I was always under the impression, which is apparently old news, that many of the pros ran slow suspension....but sounds like they are challenging that old concept and trying some new stuff...

 I think it was Gee that said his rebound was way faster than normal for dh, sounds like people are catching up?

 29 inch wheels probably need more convincing between consecutive impacts. FWIW, on my old-school Fox 40 RC2 spring fork, I run maximum 5 clicks of rebound on fast flowy trails. I crank it up closer to 10 clicks for hacked out, rocky trails. It has a tendency to jump nose low if you get too aggressive on steep faces with a slow rebound setting.

 Part of the confusion probably comes from pros running super high spring rates. On stock tuned shocks a pro running 350 psi needs to slow the rebound all the way down in order to have a reasonable stable ride. Higher spring rate = more rebound damping to compensate the higher force extending the spring.

 In one of the first Vital podcasts they talked to like THE Fox suspension engineer, Jose maybe?, anyway his number one tip was to speed up rebound, and turn down compression dampening.... food for thought, and something I have remembered since

 @cky78: On another Vital podcast with Darren, the founder of Push; he mentioned that most riders (non-pros) have their rebound set too fast!

 That was refreshing, Minaar is gold! As a future in TV; I wonder what bike the GOAT is riding in his local trail???

 Dialed is such a good series. Getting Greg to host was a great idea. The way you set this up leads to really genuine interactions and surprising insights. Great work guys.

 does anyone know more on that fast rebound topic? is it a front and rear thing or rear only in an effort to maximise traktion in the front? or just in relation to past bike setup? i remember vouilloz was famous for having trampoline like rebound settings. was he ahead?

 More Minnaar in these roles would be great, the guy has a great sense of humour!

 Hey Jordi, I assume you raced with AFM at Sears Point.. what years? That's where I started in '91. Grids were huge then with waiting lists for entries. Sadly not the case these days.

 It was rather surreal to hear Minnaar naming specific trails at JMP. I loved that little park, and even used to bike patrol there for the Oakland PD.

 @shortsguy1: Yea I spent quite a lot of time in the east bay, used to love riding in the Oakland Hills. Cinderella, the dirt jumps in Montclair..... Good Times!
