The History of Whistler Bike Co.
New shop looks good, gentlemen. The contrast between the ultra modern Whistler store and retro reggae Pemby store is rad too!

Polygon Square One EX9 and its R3ACT Suspension - Where it Came From and How it Works
One other thing that has been missed entirely is that those anti-squat curves are flat out incorrect. One giveaway is that there is less anti-squat in the easier gears than the harder ones...

@WaterBear: there are no textbooks specifically on bicycle suspension that I'm aware of. Motorcycle Chassis Design by Tony Foale is the closest and most thing.

The Tuesday Tune Ep 18 - Setup for Pros and Mere Mortals with Remy Metailler
100% agreed. Numbers should be derived from good setups (as a way to measure what works) rather than the other way around.

@Trabes: he gave us a banana this year but it got a bit squished when we plugged it into the camera.

Having the discipline and motivation to do that will certainly stand you in good stead in terms of having a few "standard" setups you can use for different situations.

@nvranka: In the context of what I was saying, I don't really see a disagreement there, and this is kind of the point - you have worked out your priorities, so has @Lagr1980, and while my interpretation of his comment was more along the lines of "I'll deal with bottoming out now and then in order to have more traction", even if he was saying "I'll run 45% sag to stick to the ground and bottom my bike out 50 times a day", if that's how you want your bike to feel then that's the "correct" setup for you (though you do risk damaging stuff if you're bottoming out that often, obviously!). I've seen guys running sub 20% sag on the rear end of their DH bike because they like the way it jumps on A-line and don't care about skittering around on other trails - certainly isn't the fastest setup and they very rarely use full travel, but it's what they want it to feel like and I feel the suspension industry as a whole has done a fairly poor job of acknowledging that in the past, which is why we've made such an effort to address it head on here.

That's reasonable, shows that you understand how to address your own personal priorities regarding suspension performance which is critical to finding the setup that works best for you rather than chasing theoretical ghosts.
