First Look: Fox's New Float X & DHX Shocks - Pond Beaver 2021
@theobviousfaker: Rockshox is way cheaper than Fox in the EU, Intend and EXT cost about the same as Fox DPX2 or X2 and I would argue both Intend and EXT offer better shocks than Fox. Formula MOD coil costs less than these new ones. So plenty of competition and don't even get me started on Fox forks, I can buy a Zeb or Lyrik ultimate for less than a bomber z1 and I can get a Lyrik or Zeb ultimate with a Super deluxe ultimate and megneg for less than what a 36 or 38 factory costs .

Video: Celebrating Larger Riders in 'All Bodies on Bikes'
@aerob: I don't want a video to impower me? When did I ever say that, and I haven't seen those issues around where I live, most stores where I live have stuff up to 4XL or even 5XL, sure it isn't everything that goes that big. I can't comment about how it is in the US or anywhere where I don't live, but I haven't seen those issues here, sales people where I live have in my experience have been more than happy to help out bigger people as well, ordering stronger wheels if that might have been needed and so on. All I meant was for people to do them and not care what others think, why spend energy thinking about what others might think. As I said earlier, I don't fully get why people want videos impowering them, because I have never seen the reason for them in my personal life or the people around me, but if they help some then sure make them

@oragejuice: I just haven't met actual people IRL that used these types of videos for impowering them or anything. I also think that we are playing a dangerous game right now, but if some can use these videos to make them do what they actually want to do then sure

I don't get why we need to put focus on this stuff. I was a big guy just a year ago, I never cared about what people thought and I still don't, so I can't relate to what they are saying and I haven't met anyone that have expressed any form of issue in this regard. Maybe it is just where I am from, where a lot of people ride bikes all the time no matter their size or anything else. I think it is a rather toxic mental state to be in, if you let some imaginary fear of what others think of you being fat and riding a bike. You do you, end of story and we shouldn't sugar coat this into it sounding like it isn't unhealthy to be overweight, just like it is unhealthy to be underweight. Great for them that they enjoy riding a bike, but I will say it again, do we really need videos like this? I don't see anything impowering about it or similar videos.

Opinion: 7 Things All New Mountain Bikes Should Have
@joshfrandsen: I can tell you that a bomber z1 costs about the same as a Lyrik ultimate or Zeb ultimate in the EU, even online (800-850€). Fox stuff is just ridiculously expensive here with factory forks starting at about 1550€ which is about $1880.

Opinion: 7 Things All New Mountain Bikes Should Have
@BenTheSwabian: I highly disagree, as someone that is tall then a current XC bike feels awful with the current slack 74'ish STA, 76 is the minimum for me on any bike type. I also ride XC for that matter.
