Old guy that doesn't hang out with old guys. And has the speed to justify.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 19: Rebound Damping - Video
I spent a few days in Moab to ride, but also to dial in my brand new CC Inline Air shock on my 2nd gen carbon Tallboy. Slickrock Trail, three times in two days (poor me..) I ride for speed, nothing else. Slickrock was perfect with its never ending ripples. I finally found the perfect low-speed rebound setting- any faster, and the rear would start bouncing. Any slower, and I could feel it pack. Thought this would be the first time I would run “human” low speed rebound. Nope. Two out from fully closed. About 80% in from factory settings. Haven’t touched it since. Running high speed reboud 1/2 turn in from factory settings, and compression is factory recommended. If you want the fast track to tuning an Inline Air, start all damping at recommended, then dial it in with volume spacers alone to match the fork. Then clickers.. Eric

Testing 27.5 vs 29 With Vanderham and Gauvin - Video
I’m a little biased since I come from motorbike racing and found 29’ers to be the most natural transition. But I’m not biased when I say I’ve seen a lot of 27.5 vs 29 comparisons, and have never seen the 27.5 come out on top. Although they’re usually about this close.

Too Long? Too Slack? Not Enough? – Pinkbike Poll
I just rode my Maverick ML-7 on my local trails in northern NM and I was amazed at how agile it was compared to my second gen carbon Tallboy! In short, my Tallboy just doesn't fit on my hometown trails. Yes it's got long chainstays, but a 70 degree head angle... I wouldn't give up my Tallboy for anything, but there's a limit if you're going to own one bike for everything. Eric

Cross-Country Tech - Vallnord XC World Cup 2017
Bruni and Peaty wouldn't be the first professional racers to talk up a product for their sponsors. Wether it works or not. That goes back as long as there has been, um, sponsors.

Speak of the devil, I just finalized my DB Inline Air volume reducer count. I was on the phone with Cane Creek this morning asking them what I might feel going from a lower can volume to higher. They gave me some general guidelines, but I think I have the definitive answer- your (shock) will get harsh because of the increased HSC necessary to keep the bike in the normal range of travel. Had to go in a full turn of HSC to compensate for the loss of only one small row of spacers! Guess I was close. What should have made a super plush ride was stupid harsh. And I wouldn't have known that increasing the HSC would effectively bring the high speed circuit in sooner without the Tuesday Tune!! You the Man! Eric

Beautiful Man.. Please keep ramming engineering concepts into our cerebral cortex! A great take away from this one is the idea that a more progressive set up can actually be harsher due to slamming into the last half of travel sooner than a more linear tune. And that last half (HSC) needs to be stiffer to compensate. Fantastic, as always. Eric
