Nicolai Announces New Ultra-Adjustable G1 Enduro Bike
@SintraFreeride: yeah but if you lower or raised a the BB, with the same fork length, the head angle has to change. I don't see how that avoidable. 150mm travel 29er fork is the same axle-to-crown length as 170mm 27er fork

Sorry to be asking a boring question, but how is it it possible to achieve identical head angle between the 27 and 29er, yet the BB-axle changes from -20mm to -30mm respectively?

@mikekazimer: is it possible it could be the damping tune? Just curious really

I think Schwalbe's are a country dependant love affair. In the UK they're pretty much the cheapest and they favour our wet climate. I can see that in generally drier places they'd suck especially if they were also more expensive

I'm sorry but GRIP2 is a total con and a step backwards from the bladder system. GRIP2 is only a slightly modified Marzocchi damper that is basically a spring loaded blow off valve - ie you can't get real compression damping from it, no matter how much you turn those dials, cos when you hit it hard it just opens the blow off and you plummet to the bottom of the fork - just like Bombers did. Feels great in the car park and is ideal for people who want "comfy" suspension, but that fact is that the FIT bladder damper is superior - it just costs more to produce.
