Ask Pinkbike: Body Armor, Fork Upgrades, Cornering Tips, & Shoulder Bumps
+! for switch to DVO because the RS 35 is just OK and not really upgradable and needed to stay in a low budget. I bought a Beryl on sale for $400, and that fork is now called the Diamond 2 I think. The DVO had the best small bump sensitivity vs. RS 35 or my Fox 34 or 36. I'm about to sell it on my old 27.5 bike and hope to get back on a DVO fork some day on the new 29er.

Must Watch: One of the World's Best FPV Drone Pilots Chases Remy Metailler
So awesome and amazing. BIKE CHECK!! I see DVO green fork, but Diamond or Onyx? DVO shock too? I recall Remy was on GG frames but now Polygon? I can't keep up. I just love knowing that my parts and bike should be able to do all this, I just need to grow bigger balls and shrink my amygdala :-)

Editors' Choice: Our Favorite Parts From the Value Bike Field Test
DVO for the win! All that smoothness soaking up the little bumps with their bladder design quite simply results in a more comfortable ride w gobs of traction. It may not be the best big hit fork, but for my type of riding, it rocks. Nobody talks about the Beryl fork, because they no longer make it, but is what I have. DVO Diamond on the inside, more basic on outside, and like $600 new w warranty. The Topaz shock is smooth too

Video: 5 Value Full-Suspension Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
I basically live my whole life in the "value" category, so THANK YOU for the focus on bike models that cost less than most used cars or new motorcycles. Ever since my first mountainbike in the late '80s it's been a journey of finding a basic model with a great frame, riding hard and breaking stuff, and two years later end up with almost an entirely new bike built off upgraded replacement parts on that original frame. Newer bikes are pretty amazing for what they can do and how long some components last, so new folks may not have to follow this path, but I still do! Just pulled the trigger on a $1700 full-sus enduro frame and can't wait to get it and get rollin. It was not easy finding a frame-only for $2k!

Review: Roval Control Carbon Wheels
Which did you prefer - the new Spez Ground Control or MAX Forekaster? I really liked the Forekaster, and while swapping tires is absolutely the lowest cost way to see big changes in the bike, it is still not a cheap/easy exercise in my world to try as many tires as I'd like.

Video: $450 vs. $2000 Suspension - Budget vs. Baller Episode 4
I'm having a blast with my DVO Beryl fork - same insides as the Diamond but heavier parts and less adjustments on the outside. It's been smooth and solid for almost 4 years and cost about $450 back then, and on sale.

NFT Trading Has Officially Infiltrated Cycling
Blockchain uses a ridiculous amount of energy. Very unsustainable. Supporting it's growth is adding more server farm power hogs to world, which in my opinion is not needed. KEEP IT REAL :-)
