@Giacomo77: How did you settle on your anti rise values? I'd have thought you'd aim for something between 30%-50% as that where (I thought) the sweet spot is for balancing the paramaters of isolating suspension from braking forces yet enough interaction to get the bike to squat some to preserve geometry. "Anti-Rise: Also known as “brake squat,” anti-rise occurs when the rear suspension compresses or “squats” into its travel while braking. This is more favorable than rise because it slackens and lowers the geometry and keeps the rider’s weight back which is more stable when going downhill, however too much anti-rise can result in a less active suspension and loss of traction. Anti Rise is how much the bike pushes back (like statement above) however on the back of the bike during braking you want the bike to squat slightly to counter the riders mass from shifting forward dramatically. 100% would feel like too much when talking about braking. (Chris’s thoughts on too much and too little, % range). Anti-Rise is common on low single pivot bikes." - http://canfield-balance-formula.com/glossary/

@ThePM: I'd say a better rule of thumb is to proportionally increase compression damping relative to rider weight

@literally: ya but it's totally derivative of the fox marketing ploy, which would be ok if the fork looked great but it doesn't. Marketing/graphic design fail.

Fav of the elite women riders. Great style on bike, a genuine personality, and totally capable of stand in on the top step on any given race weekend.

Greg Minnaar Out of Fort William with Fractured Right Arm
Anybody else feel like a whole lot of top riders are out with injury? whats the count now in the top 20 ranking? 5? Is this just the new state of play and everyone is cool with it? Or do we need to suit up better?

its obvious he crashed because of those transition knobs on the Assegai. Don't mess with the channel.

Results & Photos: Round 1 Of The Revolution Enduro - Buffalo Creek Enduro
Buff Creek is flat AF so I understand why Nate chose the SB100, but its weird seeing a 100mm travel bike winning an Enduro race.
