12 Bikes from Farm Jam 2020
@emptybe-er: I appreciate the argument good option if you can get ahold of a 36 for a decent price but otherwise trying to upgrade a crap fork from a Pinkbike deal or something is pretty pricey especially for a grom or newbie or anyone who can't afford the around 300$ Price tag of a new fork. And used dj forks are harder and harder to find.

12 Bikes from Farm Jam 2020
@emptybe-er: I'm looking at one of those old forks now I've got 3 or so. Surprisingly not as heavy as people make them out to be 6 pounds an some change very smooth very strong easily to swap stuff out. What's weird is in seventeen years we lost two pounds and gained a bit of adjustment/smoothness that most people don't even use. Also if you set one up right you only need one spring and air pressure so that drops the weight even closer to 6 lbs I'm not denying that two pounds doesn't matter its huge but I was a bit disappointed when I swapped out an old dj2 for a new dj1 a few years ago when they went on sale on their website and only lost one pound off my bike. When the thing showed up I saw right away that it was basically an 05 dj1 with some weight shaved after riding it a few weeks I realized it's exactly what it needs to be smooth strong durable. I wish it were lighter but that's my only complaint I just didn't find a pound to be worth double the cost.

@emptybe-er: 15? I know your being hyperbolic but It's around a pound. And I'm not sure it's worth the 750$ price tag also most of the dj forks I run into are setup so stiff by the rider that I wouldn't put much weight behind their opinions on performance I.E what would someone know about the performance of a fork if all they do is over pump it with air and slow the rebound down. A dj fork is pretty simple. smooth strong at the lowest weight possible and I give you that pound means a lot but I feel people over hype stuff sometimes.

@WAKIdesigns: I had the purple 2010 and It was awesome the 06 dj2 I had was pretty decent heavy but smooth now I've also got a newer dj1 and besides the weight it feels fine what's your problem with them. The dj3 shouldn't even be in the comparison because nobody elts makes a third grade fork.

Starling Cycles' New Twist Has 160mm of Travel and Mixed Wheel Sizes
@artistformlyknowasdan: you mean like most 29ers and 27.5 it's almost like you could make a wicked bike with modern geometry that's lighter and more maneuverable with smaller wheels.

Nino Schurter Reprimanded by Swiss Army After Mooning at the White House
@won-sean-animal-chin: owning ar15s isn’t about hunting it’s about protection of ones family and community if I say things people don’t like politically or run for office on a message some don’t like 12 people could show up in masks or hoods and a single shot rifle will not be enough to save my family you may say this is paranoia but I don’t think you’ve ever had your house broken into I don’t think you’ve ever experienced violent crime.

@BenPea: 40000 car deaths per year those are mostly accidents we kill more people on accident with something not even meant to kill and nobody seems to talk about more regulation hundreds of millions of guns and the vast majority of them have done no harm but you could accidentally kill 5 people tomorrow cause your five minutes late or maybe you had to tweet something.

@won-sean-animal-chin: 33636 per year only 13000 of those are murders (the other portion is mostly suicide) we have a mental health crisis not a gun crisis we also have roughly 8 times the population that you have three hundred and thirty million we are the third largest nation in the world we have our problems and so do you but you need to stop ignoring scale of problems
