First Look: Sprindex's Adjustable-Rate Coil Spring
@dreamlink87: springs can't be compressed infinitely. The softer spring bottoms first then only the harder spring is left- of course it works.

Review: Can Manitou's Mezzer Pro Fork Compete With the Best?

Review: Can Manitou's Mezzer Pro Fork Compete With the Best?
@mikekazimer: Manitou uses a setup where the oil goes through both the high speed shim stack and the low speed needle/ball bearing/whatever they use on the Mezzer. There is a lot of adjustment crossover with this design. That isn't really the problem though. The problem is there is just too much high speed damping like my Magnum. There is a company in New Zealand that sells modified pistons with more holes to let more oil through the high speed shim stack. Oddly, Manitou still has not employed this as stock. You can modify the shim stack and damping curve all you want- you can even use lighter weight oil- and it will still be too harsh. My SID WC is still way more forgiving than my Magnum. SIDs aren't very plush, so Manitou is still way out of the ball park on this front. You could fix this problem with a Dremel...

Review: Industry Nine's More Affordable 101 Enduro S Wheelset
Manufacturers are trying to save weight. I tried it, and the rim is in the final stages of fatigue failure, and I am a lightweight. About the only thing that isn't cracked is the rim bead- but I got great warranty service! Too light is definitely a problem for aluminum wheelsets. Here I was thinking only carbon will leave splinters everywhere, and my aluminum rim just took out my tubeless tape with sharp little flakes.

RockShox Recalls 29-Inch Lyrik and Yari Forks
Rockshox just replaces your broken stuff typically. And clearly the problem was caught before any accidents. Rockshox has the manufacturing capability to simply give you a new one, so you get a cheaper fork often with better tech. I am sure they have way more production capacity than they could ever use. Anytime I have had an issue with a Rockshox fork they have taken care of me.

Confirmed: Cannondale's New Downhill Bike Has 2 Shocks
If the front end is pushing hard, reduce high speed compression up front. If it starts sucking down, rebound both front and rear maybe too slow. I have found most forks to be spiking with too much high speed compression and it sets up both ends of the suspension wrong. Trying to increase high speed compression out rear just makes for a jarring, spiky mess- the rearward travel of the fork tends to lead to too much compression damping in attempt to compensate for dive. Suspension is much faster in the loose with less damping.

MRP's Ramp Control Pro Cartridge, Carbon Repair Service, & a 13 LB Bike Rack - Sea Otter 2019
@gabriel-mission9: i wasn’t suggesting that. There’s about 3-4 mm of air damped instead os sprung travel because of that port. No preload there, not relevant to those systems.
