Win It Wednesday: Enter to Win Hayes Dominion A2 Brake Kit + Rotors and Brackets!
You guys are making me wish I'd gone with Hayes instead of Maguras! Still super happy with my MT5s and they do everything I need them to (although I have experienced a bit of brake fade at the bike park). I will likely give the Hayes A4 a shot for my next set though!

Spotted: A New Lightweight RockShox Dropper Post?
@Fullsend2-13: Yes different kinematics also require different amounts of damping which the super deluxe lacks the adjustment for. I don't know how you can say that it working properly on only some bikes is somehow okay. And I tried a Megneg before getting it custom tuned. Trying to use the air spring to make up for a lack of damping is a terrible solution. It made the problem less bad but it sure as hell didn't make the shock work properly.

@Fullsend2-13: So of course a 200lb rider is going to need a different amount of damping from a 140lb rider. From stock the shock had no mid stroke support, which is why most people I've talked to end up filling them with tokens to get them to work. If I tried to dial in more than a few clicks of LSC from wide open the shock kind of felt like it was packing up on repeat hits, but I wouldn't trust my ability to verbalize what was happening. Total lack of support. Total lack of adjustment with the top model. Sent it to Vorsprung and now LSC is dialed half way in and the shock just works.

@Fullsend2-13: Their shocks are a joke. Most people have a knocking sound when changing direction. And the lack of HSC adjustment on what should be a high end shock is an embarrassment. I actually really am enjoying my super deluxe ultimate and all it took was sending it to Vorsprung to have most of the internals replaced.

@AFunFox: Most droppers these days have travel adjust so you can get it the right height. I do actually use the ability to stop it half way up in flat pedally bits when I'm just chilling. Could probably live without it if there was significant weight savings but not for like 10 grams.

Intense Announces '951 Series' Aimed at New Mountain Bikers
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the bike, or the fact that they've decided to offer this. Change "aimed at new riders" to "aimed at providing a value offering" and they've hit a home run. Instead they've just stubbed their toe.

@tmt-rider: would call this nothing short of a marketing disaster. They just ostracized 95% of people who might have bought one.
