First Ride: Santa Cruz Megatower
@TheSlayer99: Should and does though.... I have all three here in my office, and I like all three. The DPX2 is however very progressive and so won't suit all tastes and bikes. The X2 is great but needs more TLC than the other two in terms of service-life. For most people, and certainly for the money you pay for them the RCT is the best shock in my mind. It certainly offers the best small bump of the three, and has a really useful range of adjustments in those it does have. The rebound will take you from too slow to too fast, and the LSC offers 1.5 'tunes' of adjustment, which is quite enough for most. The other two may have the edge when it comes to outright performance in the right hands, but if you remember SC bikes are sold in kit form and anyone willing to drop the kind of money SC are asking will probably be willing to pay their LBS the upcharge to another shock. I don't think this bike was designed with VFM in mind, so I can't really judge the parts based on what you'd expect for the money as that way madness lies.

@yzedf: I doubt that. There'll be price breaks for hitting certain ordering targets of course, but that wouldn't drive SC to spec a specific shock with a specific drivetrain.

@TheSlayer99: The RCT has low speed compression, rebound and a pedal platform switch, so its not like it has no adjustments

Fox shocks generally run a significantly higher compression ratio that RS ones. If you build in plenty of progression to suit a coil, sometimes Fox just runs too much progression. It may be that the RS shocks work better for a wider range of people.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
@yupstate: I think you mis-interpreted what I said. What I mean is that for a small run US manufactured frame done the way they are doing it the price is about what you'd expect. I don't actually know GG's costs of course, but the number doesn't seem wildly high or low. I also however will say that its not cheaper than a big brand frame because they can make it cheaper. Its cheaper because the big brands have massive mark ups.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
@duzzi: The reason that a standard carbon frame costs $3000 is the mark up applied. The materials you make it from don't actually change all that much price wise - only the quantity you make has a significant cost impact. Given its direct this frame is actually relatively expensive as you'd expect from small run US manufacture, its just there's not $2500 of mark up in there.
