Propain Launches New Tyee Carbon & Tyee AM Carbon
@freestyIAM: I don't mean highly progressive to the point it doesn't work with air, I mean a constant, "slight" (to be chosen from the company regarding the feel/use case they foresee for the bike) progression that makes it work with most shocks. I guess I agree with you

Propain Launches New Tyee Carbon & Tyee AM Carbon
@spaceofades: yup cubes classification are an absolute joke. Some other manufacturers do that aswell. From the cheapest city-ebike up to 180mm "freeride EWS race machines" everything voids the warranty, 2cm more travel and you're allowed to doublefrontflip the Oakley sender and its okay.

Propain Launches New Tyee Carbon & Tyee AM Carbon
I think progression should mainly come from the frame, not the air chamber. Too many tokens make for a strange feeling and increase the need for much more high speed rebound, an adjustment many shocks don't have. Some progression over the whole travel, so it doesn't spike at the end is best imo. If you want less: ride coil or big air chamber shock. More: tokens. But don't build a totally linear/deg frame.

First Ride: Crankbrothers Carbon Synthesis Wheels
@FLATLlNE: I get what you´re saying, but concrete is a bad example. Its not strong at all. Buildings and bridges are built with steel reinforced concrete, giving the ability to withstand critical tensile stress.

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
Interesting review.. mtb-news (German biggest mtb site) recently did a comparison test between this, the Orbea Rallon and the Raaw Madonna. They attested the Capra the most planted feel, with the bike being very smooth in even the roughest stuff, more akin a full downhill than enduro bike. https://www.mtb-news.de/news/2018/09/04/enduro-bikes-test-2018/ In the end you can´t trust just one guy writing something in the internet, I´m sure that the people testing on most of the bigger sites are really good riders, and everybody has his/her own opinions and preferences which you as a potential consumer have to filter through. And then there are the people telling you "29ers can´t win races" or whatever.. come on we have so many options, how can anybody start a fight over gear?? Its like the camera fanbois now that every company is jumping on the mirrorless train "hue nikon owns canon, fuji sucks" etc. Calm down and just do fun stuff.

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
From what I´ve read the only difference in the shock is a 5mm spacer, and ofc the 10mm more at the fork. Should climb better due to the slightly harder shock and lower front-end, but I cannot speak from experience.
