Gearbox Shifters, Hairnet Helmets, & Magnetic Hubs - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
@naturaltalent: All true but i'd say having that appropriate surface on the inside of the leg would make it CONSIDERABLY more expensive. You need to finely machine, maybe even polish and make hard enough (hard anodising of the stanchions and all...). And given the amount of clearance in my old Pike (first gen, serviced only twice in 7 years, but it still had no bushing clearance after all that time) and the clearance in my 2015 Pike, i can only say they went the cheap and easy route to make the forks lately. There is no other explanation for the clearance than looser tolerances to make the production cheaper (the stanchions don't need to be aligned as well, the diameter of them and the bushings not as tightly controlled, etc.). And, how do you pull that thing apart? Do you take the axle holder on an MX fork off and pull the stanchion out from the top? You can't do it the normal way since the bushes would get stuck in each other. On the other hand, the Obsys supposedly has this setup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2a9uIR0er0k

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
Throw the dual lock thingie away and put normal suspension on it. A proper bike hardly even needs a lockout switch anymore!

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
The first thing I said when I looked at it after release... How can designers decide this is a good idea??

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
@Aesthethica: because of the ungodly swat tube angle (actual, not effective). On the xxl the seat might be behind the rear axle...

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
@MysticMCyclist: Google it. The genius line used an equalizer shock as well, but the ransom had an ordinary push shock Many people even threw out the garbage the it was and put a monarch on it to get the bike working.

The old Ransom didn't have a pull shock. The genius line did.

Behind the Bike - Knolly's New Fugitive
@ZappBrannigan: This. Which is caused by using the stupid offset seat tube. When will this fad die already?!

Fox Racing Releases New Autumn '18 Collection
@jrocksdh: Which ones have this feature if you don't mind asking? But just writing inseam lengths on the product page is a great help. Dakine and Race Face are among the companies that do that so it's not a surprise i bought their product and am happy with it. Regardless, i'm still very limited with the offering if i want at least a 15 inch inseam...
