What the Heck is a Down-Country Bike? - Opinion
My first full suspension bike in 2009 was 120x90mm and a 68 head angle. Then I snapped it in half.

Starling Murmur - Review
@Racer951:Whatever the correct term is, I just know I've ridden frames (SC heckler and Transition blindside) with similar looking rear suspension and the rear end would stiffen and perform poorly while on the brakes. These companies offered floating brake add-ons, as Trek now incorporates, to counteract this issue. I don't have a solution for it as far as suggesting lower/higher anti-rise rates, it just anecdotally would seem to perform similar to these past designs. Maybe you can provide insight if that is the case or not? Also, you say multi-link designs may have braking characteristics similar to single pivots, but then say linkages make no difference...so which is it?

Starling Murmur - Review
I would imagine that brake jack would be prominent on a design like this.

@Lagr1980: do you want your coil fork to feel more air like?

Formula Introduces A New Technology for Air Suspension
@xeren: No im not confusing the two. They are designed to have whatever rate you want in them, as long as you maintain a 10psi difference. Most people take that as an opportunity to lower the initial stroke psi but not blow through their travel by maintaining pressure in the IRT. I took it to further ramp up my end stroke (from mid-end) in a more specific manner than IVA can, while maintaining my initial rate. I run 55/90psi.

Formula Introduces A New Technology for Air Suspension
@Lagr1980: Yea not buying it. 1. check out Manitou new air seals. Really only makes a difference in the parking lot and not enough platform to push off for technical moves. 2. Rebound is independent of compression. 3. feedback I get from coil is the support isn't there, ride a multi-chambered air spring and you can tune infinitely through the whole curve. 4. rear suspension needs to be reset for any fork changes, including air

What is the obsession with linear spring rates?! The best system out there is Manitou w/ IRT so I can ramp that shit up.

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
@dthomp325: Guess it depends on the rider and riding style. At 150lbs, my tire set up of Magic Mary and DHRII on a 160mm bike is spot on at 850ish grams. Pisgah National Forest and bike park riding. I couldn't imagine pushing around a 1200g set.
