Video: Christopher Walken Stars in New YT Jeffsy Teaser Video
This is a company that spends on big money athletes, movie stars and shiny things, yet they don't make enough bikes to even reach their potential revenue all while having a pretty bad customer service. That business model just doesn't seem to be a good one.

Gearbox Shifters, Hairnet Helmets, & Magnetic Hubs - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
@naturaltalent: The reason they don't do this is due to the manufacturing process. MTB lowers are made with a thixo molding process. Just like plastic mold injection but with magnesium. One side effect of thixo molding thicker parts like MRB lowers is an issue called porosity. Once they machine a smooth cylindrical surface for your dynamic bushing to glide on it would expose pits and voids on that surface9not good for bushings or sealing). After sorting the bad parts they would have to make so many molded parts to get a small handful of good parts after machining. They would be very very expensive forks. Certainly doable but not cost effecting to do. Unless you want steel or aluminum lowers from billet and double the weight.

Push ACS-3 Coil Spring Conversion Kit - First Look
@BoneDog: Agreed but the push has an air bottom out that does in fact makes this as progressive as you will ever want it. I understand some of NASAs isolation systems for some of their monitoring devices as I worked for a manufacturing facility that worked with them closely to manufacture it(they have so many variations). Vibrations and hits that suspension takes are almost polar opposites. The only thing they share is that they absorb energy. There is so much that can be done with spring as far as shape and how the ends are cut along with wire diameter to create an endless variation between linear and progressive but the mtb industry is so far behind. I will agree to disagree but there is a reason that trophy trucks, race cars, moto, and any other platforms that requires suspension( word that means to keep level in suspense aka suspended) are all using coil. air is lighter and a great marketing tool for those who always drink the koolaid.

Push ACS-3 Coil Spring Conversion Kit - First Look
@BoneDog: so not true. This is perfect for lightweights like 145. im 150 and will be getting this asap. My 2017 fox 36 is amazing but no matter what it sags in its travel for light riders. my 160 sat at 153 at 60 psi and my 170 is 160 all day. this will let the fork sit proper in its travel and everyone who knows the true dynamics of a spring knows that coil will always perform better than a coil. this is awesome for lighter riders and its push. everything they do is pure gold.
