Push Industries is Making an Inverted Fork - Sea Otter 2023
@spaced: The fore aft stiffness only benefits the fork in doing its job properly. It allows it to move freely without binding, especially under fore aft load. Since that is the exact direction in which the damping of a fork is supposed to work in the first place, this means less fatigue for the rider. I don´t see any scenario where this becomes a negative. Of course the damping needs to be up to par and not reliant on flex to compensate for low frequency impacts, but i assume they got that covered. Also the tendency of fore aft flex to make the fork ping back under load imho is still a major problem as far as control and fork feel go, so eliminating that is a huge plus in my book. Now as far as single crown USD forks go, i´m right with you. Having ridden the Dorado it does have noticeable flex, but imho it really is not yet quite as pronounced to where it influences riding performance. I can´t imagine more flex than that not impacting steering precision though and i can´t see how these single crown forks aren´t much worse in that regard. I´d be happy to be proven wrong though.

Fabio Wibmer Robbed In Chile, Offers $5000 Reward For Missing Hard Drives
Don´t feel bad mate. I went to Italy with the family as a child. We got our camper van broken into 3 times in 2 days. The first time while we were all asleep in the van and they robbed about 30 other vehicles in the parking lot, all with people sleeping in them. Messed up shit happens in most countries, especially to foreigners and tourists.

Stefan Garlicki Has Also Signed with OnlyFans
@m3000: Imho it´s way more likely they simply view extreme sports communities and niche sports as a suitable gateway to make their way into more mainstream forms of onlyfans content. I think it already exists with sports like gymanstics, though those tend to often border on the adult side of things as the "fans" aren´t really there for the sports content but rather the attractive athletes. Afaik the site wasn´t really intended to be what it is now and likely its time is somewhat limited, if and once adult content creators start breaking it off with them over financial disputes etc. so them diversifying their product only makes sense. Likely they view the downhill community as one of the least judgemental, yet with some great potential for future growth into a mainstream spectacle. It can only benefit them to already be seen as a stable sponsor in the sport at that point. The scene also heavily struggles for outside money, which is perfect breeding grounds for their idea of private people supporting creators on onlyfans. If people have money for adult models, there must be some who are willing to spend money on an athlete they support. Also, if we´re being realistic, they´re everywhere already. Chances are your neighbor pays for one of their model´s premium abos, your barber has bought Belle Delphine´s bath water and your 6 year old niece aspires to step in the footsteps of her favourite onlyfans celebrity. I really don´t think downhill and enduro have any sort of reach they can gainfully leverage at this moment in time. This is likely a part of a more longterm strategy to establish a more mainstream content selection besides the adult content. The fact they so far (afaik) have only signed male athletes kinda further suggests they wanna keep the weirdos away from that part of the website for now. Otherwise they´d already have approached some of the more attractive female racers and influencers who are already drawing pretty big crowds on instagram. Maybe i´m wrong, but none of these signings and the associated press releases suggest any affiliation with the porn content and i think that´s deliberate. They seem to wanna keep things very subtle. I they wanted this to be a marketing vehicle, they´d aim for a big bang entry that stirs shit up and gets their name out in the community.
