Staff Rides: Henry Quinney's Transition Spire
@ghill28: I bought before looking then realized my mistake. Anyone want to buy a reach adjust headset for a Spire?

Shand Launches Ioma Hardtail with a 60-Degree Head Angle
@DirtCrab: Cool info and too bad you can’t share the study. Wondering if the study compensated for the slope of the average trail that a slack bike like this is designed for (let’s say 5-25 degree slope). Wouldn’t that effectively steepen the HA, and even more so on a hard tail where all the weight transfer goes directly into the fork?

Review: EXT Arma Downhill Coil Shock
Drinking the marketing kool-aid Z-man? Monotube shocks were a step forward from twin tube designs in the evolution of suspension. This configuration solved a bunch of issues that twin tubes had at that time when the twin tube design was the only thing going(1950’s). Anyway I think Ohlins was able to combine the technology of both designs to make something superior for road racing applications later down the road. However for Off-road, (motocross, etc) mono-tubes still reign supreme today. As Franco Fraton suggested (in the podcast that jukka4130 graciously provided a link for below) the reason for this is that the valving is inadequate on the TT design for mtb applications due to packaging considerations. My guess is that is because the valves on mono-tubes are on the piston attached to the main shaft they can be quite large compared to TT’s where the piston functions as a plunger instead of a valve and just pushes/pulls fluid through externally located valves and therefore have to be smaller with n order to fit on a mtb.
