Air vs Coil: Jesse Melamed and Remi Gauvin's Shock Options - Crankworx Whistler 2017
I took his preference of the air shock to come from his logic of running more sag on the rear than usual, to compensate for the steep trails shifting his weight forward. The air shock would be better suited to this, being more progressive so its not going to bottom out as readily as a coil at the same sag numbers. More sag on the air shock will also help regain some of the sensitivity lost when compared to coil. To maintain a similar bottom out resistance, a coil needs a firmer spring, which decreases sag, and would compromise the goal of trying to re-balance the bike on the steep terrain. Neither are wrong. just different ways of achieving different things based on rider preference.

Ask Us Anything: DVO Suspension - Finished
Man you guys are Machines! Huge thanks for putting this on and answering So Many questions! You even take the trolls and turn them on their heads with a honest, positive, constructive or funny reply. What's your experience with the WPL oils and their absolute grease? I've been using them in my Diamond and really enjoying them for the performance feel and how much nicer they are to work with and handle. They make a 7wt oil, and you spec a 7.5 in the Diamond. Any considerations to be made in this regard or with their products in general, or do you fully recommend them? Any plans on making service tools like sockets, seal presses, shaft clamps, damper bleed tool, etc?

Ask Us Anything: DVO Suspension - Finished
Out of curiosity, is it possible to shorten or modify a 27.5 Diamond to 100mm of travel? Any chance in hell you are going to produce a 26" single crown fork? Curiosity stemming from the development of some of the well made truly capable short travel 24" & 26" kids bikes like the Transition Ripcord, Rocky Mountain Reaper, and others from Spawn Cycles, Commencal, Kona etc. They all suffer greatly in the fork department. Something like the Beryl or Sapphire that could accommodate the abilities of those bikes would be KILLER.

Will the air volume adjuster on the Onyx be compatible to retrofit the Diamond?? That would be pretty sweet! Can you elaborate on that feature a little more? Externally adjustable? How long until the DC and SC Onyx is available? Any chance we might see a properly burly and responsive fatbike fork from you guys? Seriously. Something like a 100-160mm version of the Diamond/Beryl/or SC Onyx. There needs to be a better, stronger and proven alternative to what is currently out there, including the new Manitou. With a lot of clearance.

WynTV: How Did Gwin Do it? - Leogang DH World Cup 2017
@cletut: Yepp. Absolutely love the banter and humor it brings to the often overly serious and packaged PR/marketing type team videos. If they know how to handle it, it really is a chance to show that they all can be more than competitors, and have a good laugh with each other like friends do. It doesn't always translate perfectly, but I think the style lends a pretty honest insight into some of their personalities. Man Greg and Danny gave it back in such a funny way, but really came across as being up front and honest about themselves and their respect for each other as well. Ahhh Wyn your such a...... You never. Those comments were priceless. Ahhhahaha Kerr should come over and ask Wyn for a couple bucks from his prize winnings to help pay off his debts, and then say oh wait... You never win, your names just Wyn. Everyone will laugh.

Ya gotta know its coming, and just give it right back. Minnaar has it figured out. So does Hart now. And Gwin. I agree it is a bit rough on Kerr, but he could play along with it just once and still probably turn the tables and embarrass the hell out of Wynn.

Spotted: Brendan Fairclough's Scott Gambler 29er - Leogang DH World Cup
Orrrr maybe he just tried it and thought, 'Hey, this bike is actually wicked fun!'...? How would any of you really know otherwise? Have you tried it yet? Ever ridden a DH bike you didn't like, and ridden one that you did? It's kind of the same thing. Sometimes the things we like are not the things we thought we wanted after you have given it a proper shake. Nothing wrong with trying a bike and being open minded enough about it to not be swayed by a pre-conceived notion or mass popularity.
