@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.

We tried it on the ceiling but gravity disagreed with that one :) Dynos work best when mounted on a solid surface. Putting it on a bench or table just shakes the bench around due to the reciprocating and relatively unbalanced motion - same reason scotch yoke dynos have top speeds that are limited before you run out of power. Not sure how many dynos you have seen in use but every one I've come across has been used in the same way, in the same place.

We can sell you some for a mere $1100USD. Cheaper AND lighter than any carbon downhill frame on the market! They do smell a bit funny though.
