Field Test: Firebird 29 vs Spartan 29 vs Ransom
@JohanG: Right, but so far, nobody has done that. I've even asked prominent suspension tuners if they have measured performance on a bench with as much real world tests as possible, and the responses I've gotten were less than detailed. Basically, the industry is very hesitant to suggest that maybe, just maybe, you don't need that huge shock to be fast, at least for most consumers. They seemed to indicate that in an every-second-counts racing format that obviously a bigger heat sink with more oil volume and more space for adjustment valving and knobs is going to be better, but the average rider, or even weekend racer can better spend the additional cost (and weight) on other parts.

@mikekazimer: thanks for clarifying. Id love to see Pinkbike do a timed test of DPS, DPX2, and X2. Not a full DH run, one with significant pedaling, but still big hits and rough lines. Id bet that the X2 would only be marginally faster.

Field Test: Scott Ransom
People have been so oversold with marketing for big heavy shocks that everyone thinks they need one. Me? Im waiting for a lightweight, non-resevoir shock with all the adjustments of big shock. MRP Airshock, perhaps?

@bike2850: i dont think the Non-Reservoir shock holds it back, its that the TwinLock just doesnt work as advertised for climbing to justify it. Most mortals wont see any advantage to a reservoir shock, especially with a non-rez having a custom tune. Its a marketing ploy the industry is good at selling.

Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
@TheOriginalTwoTone: people will downvote you for mentioning the Fezzari stuff but they currently have the cheapest carbon full suspension bikes on the market. Id love to see them compared against the YT stuff. My guess is that the $3000 Jeffsey carbon would destroy much of Fezzari’s lineup.
