First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
@Flowcheckers: it's a fashion industry. That's why I won't buy this...it's all to sell a dressed up airspring

First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
@Flowcheckers: I bet they have one design engineer doing it all. Damper, airspring and performance R&D....he's probably good at 2/3. One person on chassis. That's why guys like vorspruung are key, that can sit and stare at an airspring for two years and make 100 of them. That's cake by comparison to making 10k of the same thing half way around the globe

yep. It's nearly impossible to have everything right when manufacturing at such a massive scale likeSRAM. It's good to have both.

I'm not a huge fan...I mostly care if it works well.

Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
@michibretz: That's because you aren't buying the right bike for resale or your trying to swap parts all over the place. Plus you payed full price from the beginning and kept the bike too long. Can't help you much.

Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
@MansfieldCyclesVT: Production cost reduction and competition are driving down product cost. There is a power struggle for margin at this point with the manufacturer controlling how the game is played. Unfortunately they plan, and then get worked by a direct sell model and need to cut but aren't willing to let their margin go. They must cut costs, reduce support to LBS, or change structure. This will continue to happen...we've seen high quality carbon costs cut in half almost...carbon frame costs haven't budged...why that appears to be the manufacturers margin after they get taken by SRAM or Shimano. I imagine that the shops will continue to suffer and will not want to be associated with a company. Carbon is stable and now we start to see turn battles...

The Tuesday Tune Ep 20: Preload Adjustment - Video
@VorsprungSuspension: Great point. I know that Fox states that they are within x % and that can be nearly 50lb off from rating. Can you comment on the rebound velocities of a given spring. If you have two identical spring weights but one weighs twice as much as the other, do they both have the same rebound characteristics? What if one has coil bind at one of the coils before allowing full stroke? Will that change the spring rate? Thanks again for all of the great feedback.
