Bike Check: Magnus Manson's 29er Chrome Canyon Sender
@m1dg3t: I'm going to be buying a Commencal or Canyon, so yes I will put my money where my mouth is.

Bike Check: Magnus Manson's 29er Chrome Canyon Sender
@wibblywobbly: I admit that I haven't ridden a Pole bike either, but I've heard nothing but good things about the Commencal Supreme and the Pole bikes and I will be picking up either a Supreme or Sender in a few months. Also I'm not a fan of mixed wheel sizes nor Nicolai.

Bike Check: Magnus Manson's 29er Chrome Canyon Sender
@wibblywobbly: I unfortunately have not (there was even a commencal demo day at the park, but I didn't know about it), but the concept makes a lot of sense - imagine changing the headangle of a bike from 90° to 0° and then riding into a wall - at 0° the fork would absorb the impact directly without any force going into the chasis. Also the WC results back it up pretty well, with everyone who went to high pivots doing better. There are really only 2 negative traits to a high pivot - a high anti-rise, which isn't a big deal, as the rear brake doesn't do much anyway and the wheel is going to be losing traction on choppy terrain anyways and the 2nd one would be the increasing chainstay length, which could make for weird handling, but that could be useful, as with the stretching of the front of the bike, you need longer chainstays to balance everything, just like Pole does. I'd love to demo a supreme when the demo day is at my local park again.

It's about time for a revamp. Every single full sus has been revamped in 2018/2019 except the sender. The move to 29" wheels is a given but I really hope they go with a high pivot. They have been trying the project disconnect to eliminate kickback and Troy Brosnan has used a 6 speed cassette with a dummy cog. A high pivot setup would reduce kickback and improve the bump sensitivity - win win!

Couldn't you just get a lighter spring? Also what kind of a solutioén iís it to sell a bike. My fork could use a service, time for a new bike!

@Almazing: If you put Troy Brosnan on a walmart bike, does he become as slow as me?

MRP's Ramp Control Pro Cartridge, Carbon Repair Service, & a 13 LB Bike Rack - Sea Otter 2019
@gabriel-mission9: The equalizing port means the pressures are the same, but the rod takes up a bit of space, meaning that the force is greater in the positive chamber. If there is no room for the piston to move back, where the pressure would drop in the positive and rise in the negative, the force will be acting as preload. By giving the piston a bit more space to extend, the pressure difference can make up for the difference in surface area, equalizing the forces and providing better bump absorption. https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p5pb13348170/p5pb13348170.jpg

@R-trailking-S: A solution to that is placing the equalizing port a little further into the travel, such as here https://forums.mtbr.com/attachments/shocks-suspension/925859d1411494723-debonair-upgrade-kit-img_20140923_114936.jpg with the bulge in the air can. This equalizes the pressures while having a bit more travel left to make for force difference.
