Video: Lorraine Truong Rides Again on Adaptive Orange Phase AD3
maybe using a sliding (rail mount) and tilting seat can be a interesting thing to gain ability to move weight along the horizontal axis using only arms and torso... that , with electric rebound valve control shock can be a big step forward to gain a lot more control on weight placement on these kind of bike ? same as stunt car moving weight to keep balance on jumps ?

First Look: All New 2022 Scott Spark - The Next Generation of Integration
and if i want to put a piggy back coil in there ? does it fit ? 120mm bikes are not just for xc ... no , i don't say the d***country word. just that a *big* shock and a 140/160 fork should fit this thing quite well.

Opinion: Does Mountain Biking Need a Race of Champions?
for the bikes , honnestly , the solution is quite simple. you can make a bike that can be vesatile enough to do all the scenario that different classes of bike can do. a mule. Antisquat , Antirise , progressivity , even leverage shape ,geometry , and even axlepath can ALL be adjustable to 80% of what you can find across all the specktrum of industry. travel can be too. this freak can perfectly be made by some OEM spécific compagy (i look at you , Giant ) or a small manufacturer with no logo , for the event only. it be the reference for ALL pilot , and let them adjust it to their liking or even every race. what a cool/nerdy thing to look at , each setting for each pilot on each start ?? it will not be the lightest or most beautiful bike of the century , for sure. but it can be made , as a grim donut can be. im pretty sure someone too have a "OEM" fork and a shock that can be made unbranded too , can made that can be tune/stroke adjusted quickly , and who is not willing to take credit for THAT product. someone who tweak them and is no bonded to contract to a brand can made such thing done if it as the budget and time to do it. i believe there is a lot of clever and techniqual enough men on this planete to make it really easy. SO , a higly adjustable bike , with adjustable component , all unbranded , unique to this race and no sold out of it , can be made. it's doable without a doubt, other than industry , there is genuinely passionnates lady and lads . and they do not have the industrys limitations like sponsorship/reputation. so , we have a bike. and im pretty sure we can have a track , or multiple ones , to make this fair. we can even do multiplie line on the same montain and let pilot choose ! (remind you something ?) and for sponsorship of such a unconventionnal race event ... Redbull , where are you ?

First Look: Sprindex's Adjustable-Rate Coil Spring
@dreamlink87: if you have a two same lenght spring with one with lower lbs/inch , they will not work the same. if you compress the two , will be for example a half of the low lb/i compress , and only a quarter of the other. if you apply a low force , and have a big difference in rate , the first can eventually compress until it store enough force to move the second one. in fact , that is use outside of the MTB worl , look at this : http://www.extremeshox.com/product/ext-tech-3r/

Quiver: The Many Bikes of Bernard Kerr
@WAKIdesigns: i have a little guess , maybe the head angle is that closed for the guys who do bar spin , or tailwhip ? for the short reach and the short chainstay , maybe it's more convenient when you have to do 360's , tight turn , or pump a lip that is wine bottle tall ? DJ and BMX have not the same environnement as trail bikes ... it's honnestly an open question , cause i had a trek 2016 TicketS for example , and these have a pretty long reach (can't compare cause geo is not available , but it's as long as my enduro)and open head angle , compare to my DJ who have the shortest geo of all bike i have had. the ticket S was much , MUCH more fun. but, not as rewarding when it come to train things like raw bike control. but what geometry is better to throw all thoses tricks when you're a slopestyle/park/bowl half-god ? im honnestly curious. same goes for what geometry is better when juste training for dh season ?

Review: Intend Infinity Dual-Crown USD Fork
they have exactly the same . but for motorcycle (and for a lot of mtb people by the way) , less sttifness is a good thing. Because you have lot more weight that goes a lot faster than a bicycle , and cause everyone is not someone who pass enough time on a bike to be strong for not suffer from a 40 stiffness. yeah , that wrist and arm pump you have , comme from stiffness too. so , this "smouthness" help keep control of the motorcycle , absorb heavy side impact , and keep traction. that's why they use steering damper and USD fork , stiffer is not always better , especially when going fast with big side forces on the front wheel.
