Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
Great. So if you're under about 200lbs, you still get an overdamped high speed compression circuit. How about adding compression clickers? Last time I had a motocross bike with 3 compression clicks was like 1979. Not everyone who rides is the same weight.

Industry Weighs in on the Latest Round of US Tariffs on Chinese Mountain Bike Imports
@Poulsbojohnny: @Poulsbojohnny: First, I don't make bike parts. Second, we have a strong environmental vetting process that makes sure we go to the best- or at least least bad manufacturers. There are good ones in China, but way more bad ones. Metal parts like I described we make in Taiwan where there are actual rules. Not perfect, and really not adequate, but if you want to compete at all, you have to make some stuff in China. And, you did buy a computer to write that - the electronics industry in China is bigger and worse by several orders of magnitude. Fundamentally though, you're right, so try to buy things made in countries with rules.

Industry Weighs in on the Latest Round of US Tariffs on Chinese Mountain Bike Imports
I make things in China all the time. We brought manufacturing back for a while, but we can't compete. Say you're making a stem. They can run a forging press twice as fast because there are no osha rules. There are no rules against spraying the lube in the dies that is illegal here because of their lax environmental rules. No breathing protection, no eye protection, none of the basics the the rest of the world considers mandatory protection. Try to get an anodizing shop opened in the US- you pretty much can't because of the same environmental rules. They just dump their effluent into the river. Then look at the software they're using. It's often pirated which means stolen. I can go on and on because I actually spend time there in actual factories making all kinds of stuff. And nobody complained when the ski boots I designed weren't competitive in the EU because of 23% tariffs. Or any footwear into the EU because of protectionism in Montebelluna. The trade war might be poorly thought out and poorly targeted, but the rest of the world is taking it in the shorts from Chinese made goods.

Ask Pinkbike: Coil Shocks on Trail Bikes, Changing Fork Travel, and Drivetrain Upgrades
@xeren: I have to second the Avalanche comment. At my weight pretty much every stock shock is way overdamped. Craig will improve that dramatically. I also find I don't need the climbing switch pretty much ever with it.

Mountain biking is about fashion. If you're not dressed right, then you are not part of the accepted fashion show and therefore not cool. You may only dress 3% differently than your bros because you're so wild. Funny that people comment that people look gay because they're not DRESSED right. Yeeeaaaa.
