Finals Results - Cairns DH World Cup 2016
In Kauai, HI and it's still early Friday night! What a great line up on the podium. Bruni broke his cherry, Troy the fastest smiliest gentleman around and Sik Mik right back in there.

@ninjatarian, thanks for the advice. You are clearly a great engineer that gets easily frustrated sharing your vast knowledge in forums.

Thanks, great explanation. I can visualize the relative rotation now. Interesting to note that the more the Keyway helps the more friction it introduces. I'm keen to read the reviews.

X-Fusion Revel X Inverted Fork - Interbike 2015
X-fusion's Keyway is quoted as ....'a concept similar to what's used in a dropper post to keep them from twisting' i.e. it offers rotational restraint. 'Dropper post style' rotation cannot happen when the stanchion is paired with another one so the Keyways are not restraining any twist or adding stiffness in conjunction with the axle. Think of a Lefty. They need rotational restraint which they get from a faceted stanchion (same affect as a Keyway with regards to rotation). If you paired two Lefty's you wouldn't need the faceting and could revert to the normal circular ones without adding or removing any stiffness. It's not a great analogy but it demonstrates my thinking.

How so? If the lowers are connected via the axle then you are not able to independently rotate the lowers in the uppers, so the Keyways are not resisting any 'twist'.

How does the Keyway help with torsional stiffness of the fork? I can see them stopping the lowers rotating relative to the upper, great for a dropper, but redundant for a dual stanchion fork.

Gee is a beast and taken more than his fair share of spankings! All the best for 2016.

Results: Windham DH World Cup - Finals
Gwinn has put in two of the best runs ever into one season! That was amazing and in front of a home crowd too. Gutted for Loic and his chase for the overall.

Results: World Cup DH Mont Sainte Anne - Qualifying
First 4 male elite riders separated by almost 8 seconds! That's pretty rare isn't it? Troy made up some sweet time after the first split so must have sneaky lines up his sleeve. Hope to see them all in HD glory on Sunday :)
