Video: 2020 Santa Cruz Tallboy VS Trek Fuel EX - Cage Match
One of my riding buddies still has a 160/130 mm dual position Pike that came stock on his Reign. He rarely drops it into the low position, because it causes too many pedal strikes. That bike has 160mm of travel, a 74 deg seat angle, and a 65 deg head angle, but he still prefers the fork in the long position on all but the smoothest climbs. Modern bikes are so good at climbing especially with these 76+ deg seat angles that dual position forks seem completely unnecessary to me anyway.

Spotted: New Fox 36 (38?) - EWS Zermatt 2019
@showmethemountains: Ah, that makes sense! Thank you for the explanation.

@showmethemountains: Wouldn't flex in other parts of the fork relieve some of the stress on that press fit interface?

They should extend the stanchion / crown interface 5-10mm higher and inset the adjusters inside the top of the stanchions to get more overlap without increasing the axle to crown length.

@Mondbiker: It would be interesting to see where some of the DVO forks fall on that graph. I know the Sapphire series forks in particular are supposed to be much stiffer than the stanchion diameters would suggest.

The Eurobike Rumors: AXS Suspension, 1.8'' Steerer Tubes, a SRAM Motor, Fox's 38mm Fork - Eurobike 2019
@aerius30: I thought that creaking came from the press-fit interface between the crown and the stanchions. If that's the case, a wider steerer tube wouldn't do anything to address that issue. But I do wonder if the wider stanchions on that Fox 38 might be the answer to your prayers.

First Look: Ibis' New Ripmo AF is Coil-Compatible & Aluminum
@cmedina52: Ah yeah, so essentially they're measuring the seat angle at a more realistic saddle height than a true effective seat angle, which would be measured with the saddle level with the top of the head tube. That could definitely explain it. Thank you.

First Look: Ibis' New Ripmo AF is Coil-Compatible & Aluminum
@MarcusBrody: Yeah, the BikeYoke Revive on the SLX build costs over twice as much (over $200 more) than that entry level KS Rage-i and is widely regarded as one of the best dropper posts currently available.

Don't lie to him, man. The raw aluminum frame is clearly much better looking.
