The Essential Guide to the 2018 LoĊĦinj DH World Cup
@WAKIdesigns: I like it. Throw all the down country frames into the sea, then tie them together with zip ties or used shifter cables to create your floating island. You and the crab people guy can then fight for supreme ruler of your floating ocean fill island.

The Differences Between the 3 New Specialized Stumpjumpers
@ybsurf: Indeed. Rode an HD4 over the weekend with a 65 (64.9) hta and thought it climbed well but still a little floppy. Sick bike tho and can't fault the climbing for a burly trail bike. That HD4 is 1.5 slacker than my current rig and evo is 1.5 slacker than the HD4. In-san-ity. I appreciate the big S going all crazy with it tho as an experiment. Seems like they did it just to spite Transition. "Hey, wouldn't it be funny to build a couple test mules that're slacker than the Sentinel and see if we can rush a new evo stumpy to market just to mess with the transvestites up in washington?" "How much would it cost?" "I dunno, about the same as that video we're making." "Do it."

The Differences Between the 3 New Specialized Stumpjumpers
@zede: I think it's safe to assume that most stumpy owners will not be outriding the small air can shock and that riders that are will upgrade to a reservoir shock. I'd love a podcast tho on shock stroke and little shock performance on trail bikes that are being ridden harder these days.

The Differences Between the 3 New Specialized Stumpjumpers
@zede: I hear you zede. I think Mike's off on his numbers. But isn't it only an issue if you're using a small air can shock w/ no reservoir? I'm about 215 lbs and run 280-290 psi in my DVO Topaz on my stumpy29 with a 47.6mm stroke. That gives me a hair under 30% sag. I've also run a 50mm monarch+ on the stumpy and had to go to ~300psi to not sag like a mofo. Even on the 57mm stroke DPX2 i rode over the weekend on an HD4 I had to go a little over 300psi to get 30% sag. I guess those shocks can handle the psi though. I think a 260 lb rider would be close to the 350psi limit on a DPX2 for this bike.

Staff Rides: Mike Kazimer's Nukeproof Mega 290
@mikekazimer: Got it, thanks! Hey are you digging the slightly longer chainstay than norm? I imagine this fits better with the intention/personality of the bike.
