I like damn near anything with wheels and/or an engine.

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
@manback: I just rode to and from the auto parts store with a car battery in my backpack. I didn't lockout the sus.

Some people just want to cry about what other folks run. I still catch shit from some folks for running flats and 1x.

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
I'm not fit. I'm obese. 5'10" 275lbs. But I climb good linkages wide open. Weagle's designs, (Split Pivot, DELTA, DW Link,) don't seem to need a flippy lever. Switch Infinity is pretty good too. Niner's CVA isn't bad. VPP feels like garbage open or closed. Old Horst links, (Like my Chumba,) benefit from the lever. Some of the newer Horst links don't seem to need it, (Transition's Giddy Up or Norco's Drop Link.) With Spesh, I can't even tell the difference. It feels like a hardtail with a broken frame 100% of the time. It's probably super personal and subjective. I know folks who love VPP. I think Scott and Cannondale's superflously clever designs are really neat, but I'll take a good linkage ridden open over their sorcery.

As a Weagle fan boy, I'm not mad about that.

I quit running Orange Seal because it smells disgusting, it leaves nasty residue on the rim and in the tire, and it makes gross reptavian molting skins. Oh, and it ate right through the sidewall of my tires, (Contis.) It also burped constantly, was just mediocre at sealing holes, and dried up in about two months. But, all the brohs seem to love it. "Minyunz n Orange Seal, brah!" I'm a weird case, though. I've left Stan's in a tire for a year and never had Stanimals, which the brohs also swear are unavoidable. I've also had really good luck with Bontrager, Finish Line, and Conti's Revo, all of which I have been assured are worthless. Climate, rim, temp, storage, and location probably all make a difference.
