The Privateer: Factory Pro Suspension Testing & Setup in Portugal
A little trick I figured out was to attach a zip tie or something to my frame and fork so that it just touches the tire near bottom out. O-rings are good for showing you how much travel you used but how often are you that deep in the travel? With a 'buzzer' you get a really good idea how often you're blowing through and can make adjustments accordingly.

@leelau: Now that I've been dragged into this thread more than I was expecting, I've had a chance to reflect on what I've said. It boils down to a guy like Remy, riding the park every year finding new gaps and lines , constantly trying to push himself to stay relevant getting the same support as a mediocre rider not really risking himself physically who just happens to be good at editing movies. How is that fair? Maybe I'm out to lunch and I'm cool with that, I'm not in the bike industry and really have no desire to be so I don't have a dog in this fight.

@remymetailler: Yeah and that's my point. You're a legit athlete whereas lots of Youtubers haven't put in any real risk in trying to 'make it' as an athlete. They just happen to be good at editing a video which shouldn't be the main reason to get support from a bike brand.

@Jvhowube: I'm not saying that at all, they do sponsor Mike Hopkins though who is a skilled rider and used to compete in biking and skiing. He's 'paid his dues' so to speak and continues to put out artful high quality content. The dude and his crew had to sleep on a sulphur island ffs. He works his ass off whereas others merely walk down blue trails and get the same support. Doesn't make any sense.

@bull-dozer: I have no problem with a Youtuber trying their hand at a channel and getting revenue through Toyota ads. It's just lame that bike companies support Youtubers with moderate skill over athletes trying to race which is where the products should be showcased in the first place.

F yeah agree! The same goes for sponsorship imo. So many YouTube punters getting free shit meanwhile the actual pro mtbers need Wyn Masters to get them some money for food. What a stupid time we live in.
