First Ride: 2024 RockShox SID Ultimate Fork
Who cares about bushing play as long as spare parts are available? Oh yeah, right. There are non. Your expensive rock shox fork is a throw away item once they are worn and you are out of warranty.

Bike Check: Milan Vader's Cervelo ZFS-5 Short Track Bike
A simple triangle shape would have been lighter but propably would not have gotten as many photographs.

HQ Tour: Suspension Tech International's NZ-Made Coil Shock
Yep, strong Storia-Vibes with everything about the reservoir bridge and adjusters, however: different shim ID, different piston diameter, different shaft diameter. So the internals are propably completely different and from their own design.

Formula Releases MOD DH Coil Shock
@vinay: One is shaft velocity, one is force. However this is a marketing graph and very misleading. One could argue that it is useless shit to appear "technical" by also being complete BS. (normally those graphes are made up by pushing the shock through different shaft velocities with acceleration and deceleration forces clearly visible. What they did is a "peak velocity pickoff" value from different shaft speeds and pushed a graph through it, then photoshopped the fuck out of it.)

Head to Head Review: 2023 RockShox Zeb vs Fox 38
same with fox, had to burnish tons of forks out of the box. However, at least you get replacement bushings from fox. The ZEB ist basically a throw away item with extended use and worn bushings.

First Look: Cube's 2023 Lineup
@lkubica: That Öhlins will sort you out perfectly, if you can find someone who gives it a nice tune. Out of the factory they are often vastly overdamped.

Video: Rob Warner's 1995 Race Against a Rally Car
The "long travel" and "downhill" definition back then. But other than the crap suspension, just think about those tires. You wouldn´t fit them to the bike of your worst enemy.

First Look: Ibis Oso - Not Just an Electric Ripmo
A bearing killing leverage ration seems to be the main motivation behind this frames design... Or some stupid designer wrecked havoc with his colorful pens and some poor engineer was tasked with making the monstrosity work. The endresult, anyway, is not convincing.
