2017 Pinkbike Awards: Gear Accessory of the Year Winner
Or do this: Rear = 30-ish sag + crap load of volume spacers + a little extra rebound on jump trails so you don’t get bucked. Front = soft-ish + a couple spacers + rebound in the middle. Done and done, baby! You’re welcome. A gofundme has been set up for your $5 contribution.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
Yeah but it wasn’t a long term review which is a qualifier to be considered. Next year will be very interesting tho. I’ll bet the Sentinel makes the list. I’d love to demo one! Ridiculous!

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
@rumblefish255: So of the 40 bikes PB did long term reviews on this year, which would you include? That’s the pool of candidates. They can’t recommend a bike they didn’t do a long term review of. For sure tho most of these aren’t very mainstream with the exception of the HTLT and Slash.

Oh f$&@ing no! What’s old is new again! I’d gladly run these. For free. To test the breaking point. If you need a noob 200+ pound test pilot to jump these at low psi and cruise thru some rock gardens. Can I have a pair?

Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
@tgent: Agreed. If I were a dealer I’d sell SC over Intense. Plus IMO they just haven’t dialed in the quality and brand image as well as SC. But let’s be real now. It’s the paint jobs that are hurting them.

@tgent: Yeah I was just commenting on SC, whose dealers mark up their bikes at a smaller margin than say the big S. Dealers then have to maintain close to msrp to make a decent margin. SC can do this because they have a strong brand image. I know this as I’m friends with a SC dealer. An online SC distributor probably gets better pricing from SC but at 30% I doubt CC is making anything, just offloading inventory at the end of the season to free up capital. It’s a standard end of the year sale on 2017s and very normal for all types of businesses to offload at or near cost at the end of the year.

tgent -> your numbers are WAY off. Santa Cruz’s dealer pricing is actually higher than many other brands so the markup is lower as is profit margin.

@JWadd: J-Dubb -> I run a DVO Topaz on my Stumpy and it’s an awesome shock upgrade that’s available with the proprietary mount. So are Monarch Pluses. Unfortunately most high end Fox shocks aren’t and if you use a bike yoke link the air cans still don’t always clear the (carbon) frame. I tried a DPX2 and it wouldn’t fit :(

@jclnv: Hahaha! No geo on the Capra is outdated IMO. I will agree tho that the Jeffsy’s could go a little longer and slacker. The XL Jeffsy 29 is actually too short for my preferences and I’m only 6’1”.
