Video: 27.5 vs 29, Suspension Set-up & Measuring Progress - The Privateer Episode 4
To give you some insight on why we wanted less tokens in this particular setup, the short version is: 1. Adam wanted more support in the middle third or so of the travel, which comes from running a higher air pressure (this fork doesn't have much in the way of compression adjustment, the LSC adjuster doesn't affect dynamic ride height much) 2. Longer travel air forks are inherently more progressive than their shorter travel variants 3. At the pressures required to give him the support he wanted, given the longer travel, the fork was too difficult to bottom out, ergo too progressive 4. To reduce progression, we removed tokens and popped the footbolts to reduce air trapped in the lowers. It really is a personal thing, dependent on a ton of variables including your terrain, fork travel, height, strength, weight, level of aggression, personal sensitivities (for example, some people just do not ever seem to get sore hands, some people's hands hurt after 10 seconds of rough trail) and priorities. If you're going to race flat out for 2 minutes, it's often fastest to put up with some discomfort. If you're going to race for 15 minutes, you may not be able to hold on at all by that time with a particularly stiff setup. Hope that clarifies a bit.

@MikeAzBS: all the new forks have their ups and downs. :)

Fractive Tuning from Vorsprung: Upgrade your Fox Fit4 – Press Release
Pretty well every OEM LSC adjustment opens up much further than it needs to in order to have a useful range, yes. Including the RC2, Charger 1, Charger 2, Motion Control, Mission Control, RLC, etc etc.

Fractive Tuning from Vorsprung: Upgrade your Fox Fit4 – Press Release
There are several standard Fit4 tunes, but the characteristic curves used in these kits are substantially different in shape, as well as scaled for your requirements.

Fractive Tuning from Vorsprung: Upgrade your Fox Fit4 – Press Release
Not sure I completely understand the question? The total available range of damper curves is slightly smaller than the RC2 damper, as it should be since half the purpose of valving something for you is that excessively wide "one-size-fits-all" adjustment ranges can be reduced to something more appropriate. As far as what it's like internally - other than being a shimmed damper, the compression assembly is completely different to an RC2 damper, though the rebound damper (which is unchanged) is fundamentally the same.

Fractive Tuning from Vorsprung: Upgrade your Fox Fit4 – Press Release
We are constantly developing new products and services, but about half of them get scrapped for various reasons during the development process. If/when we release such a product we'll be able to talk about it :)

Fractive is for forks, Tractive is for shocks. Neither are brand specific :)

The Tuesday Tune Ep 24 - Frequency, Vibration and Harshness Part 2
We built a test rig and tested it. Stronger riders can deal with much higher forces, but the frequency effect is pretty marginal.

Eightpins NGS1 Integrated Dropper Post - Review
@T-Bot: Thanks for the kind words. In my opinion though there isn't really any such thing as things being made "correctly" - nothing lasts forever, it's all about what people find an acceptable lifetime or service interval or whatever, and you can find fault in literally everything (including our own products). I can guarantee you that the people designing dropper posts all over the world are doing their best to make the posts the absolute best that they can make them within the constraints of reality (eg a 2kg post that costs $4000 is not likely to sell no matter how good it is), and for all the quibbles with them (including my own), the Reverb was the product that literally changed the entire MTB industry by bringing Gravity Dropper's concept to the mass market in a sleeker and more user-friendly package. But progress is inevitable, and if it ever reaches the point where bikes are as good as it is physically and practically possible to make them, sure, we might need to find some other line of work, but that point is realistically not imminent. I should also point out that the original comment was definitely not meant to paint those posts in a poor light - I run both of them myself.
