For Sale: Fox 38 Fork 170mm travel Brand new CSU / uncut steerer 44mm offset 29” Lowers Also comes with Fox fender and 180mm cartridge. Fork was new in late 2020, used briefly in 2021 for bike testing and the CSU swapped for the new version later that year. They are still the current Fox 38 fork model. Reason for sale; new brand partners. Otherwise I’d keep them as they’re awesome forks and the Grip2 damper has some of the best support out there! If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for looking!

Only 8% of Downhill World Cup Riders Want Skinsuits to Return - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
Only because the rest did @iamamodel, but if the playing field is equal, which it mostly is now (at least amongst those chasing for podiums and points), what’s the point other than to drive to apparel brands out, damage budgets and make the riders look unrelatable to other mountain bikers?

Cascade Components Announces 2021 Stumpjumper EVO & Evil Insurgent Links
All of them, surely @dreamlink87? The brands all adhere to their own testing parameters, which gives them the legal framework for a warranty and a guarantee, after all, they're testing their frames around the parts they supply with their products and the forces they generate and transfer within the kinematics they have chosen. These aftermarket links upset those kinematics, more so than others and as cool as these links are, they will surely upset the testing parameters designed and backed by the brands, who have much to lose if things go south as a result.
