We Are One Adds More Arrival Options, Previews New Rim Shape - Sea Otter 2022
@Muscovir: There is no magic air or coil spring or damping tune that can replicate a different leverage curve. They are fundamentally different things.

PB comments told me links are dumb. Why would anyone do that?

How to Accurately Calculate What Spring Rate You Need
@emptybox: It's not my interpretation. In the world of physics an impact is measured as an energy input because they are a force exerted over a distance which equates to an amount of energy. The impact when you go off a drop is absorbed over the entirety of your bikes travel. It doesn't just compress to a given force and that's it. It's all just conservation of energy in the end, which is one of the core principles in physics. Like if you go off a drop to flat the potential energy you have on top of the drop has to be absorbed by the suspension when you land.

How to Accurately Calculate What Spring Rate You Need
@ashmtb85: The amount of progression a frame has in and of itself actually isn't what creates bottom out resistance. The three factors that play into bottom out resistance are spring rate, damping, and shock stroke. Progression is all about what it allows you to do with shock setup and have the bike still ride well. If you take a linear bike and bump the spring rate up to increase bottom out resistance it'll have very little sag and track like crap. Now if you take that same spring rate and run it on a more progressive bike, it'll actually have roughly the same bottom out resistance (assuming all other factors are the same) but ride way better because the wheel will have down travel again.

I think you all need to chill out and read a little deeper into what is written. If a link causes the your frame to crack you're shit out of luck. If a bike has a link on it and the paint bubbles, which is usually covered under warranty, you should expect that to be covered regardless of ANY part that's on your bike unless it happens to spray acid over the frame or something like that. Everyone is out here acting like the only thing warranties cover are structural damage due to suspension links when it covers a billion other things. If everyone just blindly assumes that their warranty can be completely and utterly voided for any one part being on their bike or car or anything in life, then it makes it infinitely easier for the concept of a warranty to be taken advantage when a company decides it doesn't want to cover things.

@ceecee: The reasoning for not running a coil with a shock stroke less than 65 is because the amount of energy the spring can store is proportional to the compression squared. So a 65mm stroke shock is about 40% harder to bottom out than a 55mm stroke shock with the same spring rate just due to the stroke alone. That amount of energy drops off super quick too. If you look at a 45mm stroke shock, the 65 (again with the same spring) can store a little more than double the energy in the spring. So for a bike like the 5010 with a 50mm shock, I wouldn't run a coil because it would make it next to impossible for me to get the bottom out resistance I want out of it without making the entirety of the stroke really stiff.

@RoboDuck: It doesn't though. Unless you've ridden a bike with this particular curve, which there aren't many of, it's very hard to comment on how exactly it will ride.

@EarIysport: Super deluxe coil with no volume spacers reached full travel on the local trails just fine. It sounds stupid, but it's not. DH bikes have much longer shock strokes so they don't need as much progression to get the same bottom out resistance out of a shock.
