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.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would Your Dream Shock Look Like?
@st-lupo: Put your air spring on a suspension dyno and you shall be enlightened.

Pinkbike Poll: How Easy (or Hard) Is It to Work On Your Bike?
full suspension rebuild is the big black box that most people cannot touch due to the invabailability of tools (vacuum bleeding, special clamps) so I was quite surprised who many people chose that option.

@theobviousfaker: I currently run my FOX 38 with Vorsprung Smashpot and resized bushings. Never had a better fork. Works a treat together with the DHX2 at the backend of the bike.

@hallj2: We are talking about the spring. Air springs behave differently to different accelerations. A coil spring does not. has nothing to do with the hydraulics of the shock. We are talking about spring damping, which an air spring has and a coil does not.

No, that ruins the fun for us suspension guys. We love to dyno the shit out of those dampers to find out exactly that! Jokes aside, you are right. But we live in a sport that basically is 99% marketing plus 1% engineering. Most manufacturers would only provide you with photoshopped marketing graphes anyway. Trust me, I have seen those more often than I care to remember. Also, there is a lot of stuff you can hide in dyno runs if you know what you are doing. So even if manufacturers were to give you some kind of dyno charts... ...I would still retest everything.

@dthomp325: If you work with air springs long enough, you spec a coil. It is not a matter of linkage design, a coil spring is always more linear and never concerned with lubrication, humidity or temperature. Also the coil spring does not act differently with different shaft velocities which the air spring does. I know only a very limited amount of bikes that do not work with a coil shock, however these are also the bikes that work shitty with an air shock as well.
