First Look: EXT's Vaia Inverted DH Fork & Updated Coil Shocks
@jomacba: And further back, Maverick was doing that on their DUC dual crown in the early aughts.

Review: Manitou Mattoc Pro Fork - Reversed Arched, Foward Thinking
@DaveRobinson81: That is some excellent intel. Glad I came back to this. I had considered making my own piston for it, but a bunch of other need to do projects came on board.

Review: Manitou Mattoc Pro Fork - Reversed Arched, Foward Thinking
@henryquinney: Comp has 6000 series stanchions, Exp and Pro have 7000. Crowns are notably diff between the Comp and Exp/Pro, but whether that's the result of machining or mfg process and material differences I can't say. The Comp is not compatible with the IRT aftermarket kit while the Exp is. I picked up a Mezzer Exp and the IRT at the same time as it really does make a huge difference. A friend of mine was stoked enough on my set up that he replaced the Factory 38 on his Ripmo with the Pro. Of note, my older Comp, stock on a RSD Sargeant, also has a hydro bottom out. It explained a lot as to how the fork was so controlled even when I did things decidedly wrong. Had no idea about that until its first service. I hope they kept that on newer generations. It's a helluva selling point that they should really, really market more.

Evil Bikes Announces Company Layoffs
@BeerGuzlinFool: The fed is not a political position. Interest rates were raised to control inflation, and that largely worked. If you wanna point a finger at something, look towards the monopolies that are profiteering from artificial price hikes with impunity.

Evil Bikes Announces Company Layoffs
@tom666: Slow Clap> Nailed it. What I find especially telling was Trek was lauded for their market insight due to having access to register action from their dealers early in the pandemic. What was strange to me was that they didn't also have the foresight to plan for that register action to slow as demand was sure to ebb as it became satiated and sales slowed. They weren't the only company to miss that anticipation as shown here and elsewhere.

Throwback Thursday: 7 Bikes Turning 10 in 2024
Happened to check their site yesterday out of a 'Whatever happened to..?" moment related to wondering what other co's are going to go belly up in the next year or two. Surprisingly they're around, not surprisingly I am still not interested in any of their wares.

Injury Update from Gee Atherton
@privateer-wheels: Agreed. Friend and former business partner got hit by a van and ended up taking a foot of a ladder to his skull, denting his frontal lobe about .75". It was dicey for a month about what kind of recovery he was going to have, but he pulled through. Problems arose though. His temper would go haywire at the slightest event. Had to have a couple talks with him to remember that those dark, dark moments are when he has to double check himself, make sure what he's boiling over about is worth boiling over for. It was a hard, hard time for him, as well as all of his family and friends. He's gotten a lot better but still has moments.

Injury Update from Gee Atherton
Like when a 'mysterious' windstorm event pulled down Mat Hoffman's OG mega ramp.i get the sentiment. The love for a friend/fam member should always be greater than the risks said friend/fam is willing to take. I would hope that fam member would appreciate that love.

Race Face Release New Chester Lock-On Grips
I used to love lock ons for the secure fit to the bars. Then I developed wrist issues. I tried loads of different ergo grips without much love. Went back to push on grips but started gluing them to my bars essentially the same way I glued tubulars on at the shop. I haven't had a throttle moment whatsoever. That's from a Wisco rider where freeze/thaw is a way of life. If they work for folks, sweet, but one solution won't work for everybody.

Review: EXT ERA V2.1 Fork
Me. I prefer not having to nab a tool to take off a wheel for any reason. Most of the 6mm broaches on many through axles feel a bit lacking in tolerance and depth to me as well.
