Video: Richie Schley Joins DVO Suspension

Richie Schley played a crucial role in making mountain biking what it is today. The term "free ride" had not existed yet when Richie started riding steep technical lines that were off the trail. He helped to pioneer a new segment of the sport of mountain biking and set the tone for the biggest events in the world.

Richie was a rider for us since the early days at Marzocchi Suspension. After the brand died out, Richie found support elsewhere. Now that DVO has grown and become a strong brand, Richie is back home and we're so excited to have him back!

 Been running a Diamond 29 with over 50,000 meters of descending on it at races, bike parks, all over the place, and it's still kicking butt Smile

 Owned two Diamonds. They are GREAT forks! Plush, no stupid tokens to deal with and very tune-able. Wouldn't run a different fork.

 Getting back to the roots! This feels like a freeride family reunion. Richie and Lenosky on DVO is a good look. Way to go, DVO!

 Good for him. I remember when pb comments section took a huge dump on Schley for being sponsored by Rotwild and Mercedes Benz a few years back.

 DVO make a solid product! They are user tunable and serviceable. Everyone in that building rides, and they are constantly testing and making improvements. Trying to take on Fox and Rockshox is no easy task, but these guys have something worthy of that challenge. If you get a chance to ride one of their demo bikes this summer, try it out.

 I love my DVO. I will say it had a very minor issue after a full season of abuse. I will also say DVO did immediately fixed the issue and did a full pre season service on the fork while they were at it. And didn't even charge me.

 Yeah what the f*ck are you talking about? I think you have a 100% failure rate @Krzymndyd:

 @pelli: meanwhile I have never had one issue with any lyrik or fox 36 and 40 with multiple seasons on them.

 @Krzymndyd: I've had bigger issues with rockshox, Fox, and Marzocchi in the past. I still like their stuff aswell. I'm a big dude suspension takes a beating with me no matter who makes it. There is just something with the DVO that makes it feel better for me personally.

 @freeridejerk888: Take the info as you want but being a typewriter tough guy is doing nothing more then making you look like an ass. If you would like I can private message you a response in July when I can actually say something but by then it will be out. Have a good night! That’s all
