Behind the Numbers: Unno Dash
@JamieMcL: Right on. I had the original DPX2, a Float X2, a custom tuned DVO Topaz, and a custom tuned Marzocchi Bomber CR. The Bomber CR with a progressive coil felt the best but it was still to harsh for me. Yes, little to no HSC and LSC was best for sure. Hard to believe that a Dune with all that travel would be harsh but it's true. I believe that it's the forward axle path combined with the suspension kinematics that result in the harsh feeling.

I'll translate for you. This bike seems very similar to the Mondraker platforms as it should considering they were designed by the same person. The common theme I have experienced with these platforms is that the geometry is extremely stable at high speeds, they are very efficient from a power transfer perspective, and that the back end feels overly firm and harsh. The Foxy 29 was the fastest bike I've owned but also my least favorite to ride due to the harsh and unforgiving rear end. I tired 4 different shocks including two different custom tuned shocks and could never get the back to feel how I would have liked. If I were racing I wouldn't care, it was fast, but for a daily driver it was a bit too unyielding. "Requires a precise and skilled rider" is a nice way of saying that it's going to beat you up and you need to be highly active in selecting good lines.

Chromag Announces Expanded 2020 Apparel Line
@NorCalNomad: Right on. It doesn't necessarily have to be North American made for me. I want to make sure that the source isn't using unfair labor practices and/or creating too much pollution. My employer makes water filtration and treatment products and I've been to places that have decimated entire waterways and ecosystems in the name of "cheaper". Luckily we've helped many of these companies improve drastically but the majority continue to be terrible.

@NorCalNomad: Good point. Bummer, I've committed to being more selective with the origins of the products I buy. I'll happily pay more for said products manufactured outside of certain areas and countries.

Straight shredding! Looks like there's a dropper post though, not exactly "High Post Ripping".

@WAKIdesigns: I started using the Camelbak Chase vest recently and I love the front pockets! While in the Army the LBV (load bearing vest) was my favorite piece of equipment. Phone and snacks in the front are a game changer!
