Beyond the Bike Park: 5 Family Friendly North American Resorts
Seriously. Impressed every time I go, which in this case was 3 days ago ;)

Video: 8 New Suspension Forks - Sea Otter 2019
@Serpentras: I dunno. The bladder max is 200, which it has. The air can will take up to 300 and I've had it as high as 250. Sag is maybe 20%. I do like how it feels, just that seems like it should have A LOT more mid stroke support. And DVO continues to market themselves as a customer support company. Maybe I just interacted with an incompetent employee (he definitely didn't seem the brightest when I talked on the phone; more of a bro). Glad you like yours; hope it holds up!

I so want to love DVO and their products. Bought a Topaz last year and had to max out the bladder psi and put over 200 pounds in the air chamber along with all the spacers. Still bottoms out on green and blue trails. Oh, and I'm maybe 185 with kit and it's bolted to a 2015 Canfield Balance. I sent a web comment asking about how to get it set up better; they replied that seemed like I was on the right track. OK. Last summer bought new bushings on their site. After 6 weeks, phone calls, and emails, still no bushings. I had to have my bank reverse the charges. Nice job, @DVOSuspension. Also, on one of the calls with "customer service" I asked what pressure I should be running; they asked if the shock was making a "swishing" sound and I said, "yeah, it's always done that." Oh, then it's defective and needs to be rebuilt by us. At least they did that part right. Perhaps it's now a little quieter, though the bushings are still blown and I have it set up with just as much pressure and it blows through the midstroke just riding around on the flat. My buddy rides an Emerald on his race rig and regrets it; DVO hasn't been able to get him set up to his liking, either. I chatted on the lift at Highland with another industry guy who said "the damper is amazing, the overall build quality, not so much." They lost a customer for life; I'll be buying from someone else.

OneUp's New Components and Titanium from Ibis and RSD - Sea Otter 2019
@FatTonyNJ: haha. yeah I'm holding on to it in the off chance our local club ever puts together a MTB museum display thing. Also have a 2005 Turner 5 Spot and one of my riding buddies has a circa 1992 ProFlex (!!!) :) Every once in while I'll throw a leg over it and can't believe how far the bikes have come...

Still have my old Catamount built up with 1995 XTR and a Judy SL. Swapped the parts in off an old Schwinn Sweet Spot (also from the mind of Castellano) when the pivot bushings finally wore out and I couldn't find a replacement...
