Review: 6 Months on the Trust Message Linkage Fork
It's the stock tire on the new Ripley that I'm reviewing soon. Also, it's a great 900-ish-gram trail bike tire and pretty damn good when used as intended.

Nope, no hardtails for me. I have to ride/review so many full-suspension bikes and it's hard to switch back and forth to a hardtail... AKA I'm too soft these days haha

The fork's appearance is certainly a con for some riders, regardless of if that makes sense or not :)

Bang-on, that about sums it up.

No, but that's a question that I should have covered in the review. The Message keeps the handling relatively consistent, even when it's deep in its travel. A telescoping fork can't do that, no matter how hard you make it.

Yes, so much yes. But you'd also notice that it's harsher.

That question makes sense and I should have clarified. With a telescoping for you're over-pressurizing or over-damping it to preserve the bike's handling. The Message can use its travel but retain consistent handling.

@Lwerewolf: Can't really go lower with tire pressure, but it's something to keep in mind.
