Video: Shiggy Mac Hits Handbuilt Shore Lines on Kona’s Process X
I picked up a 153 29er in the classifieds and found the wheels utter cheese - they'd preload through berms and 'boing' out the backside. Strangest damn wheelset I've ever ridden... Upgraded to carbon, problem solved. Overstroked the shock to get about 160mm out back too. It's now one of the best bikes I've ever owned - never thought I'd say that about a Kona when I was growing up in the era of Stinkys...

Field Test: 12 Bikes & the New Grim Donut Get Hucked to Flat in Super Slow Motion
I'm going to hazzard a interneer guess here and say that the forces directed into the forks are pushing the lowers along the stanchions and also flexing the unit. This is because the impact isn't directed into the fork but vertically upwards - the forks are not verticle which would be the ideal angle to absorb this impact. The point at which the fork sticks is probably the point at which the amount of flex overcomes the ability of the bushes to direct the stanchions into the lowers. As the force dissipates, the bushes can cope with the flex again and continue allowing the stanchions and lowers to glide. Longer bushes could help, larger diameter tubes, or maybe even shape the tubes to have a dorsal fin travelling the length of the lower at the rear...

Must Watch: Gee Atherton Shares What Might Have Been in 'The Knife Edge'
Lots of posts mistaking his rescue as being paid for by NHS. The coastguard and Mountain Rescue are charitable organisations and need regular contributions from people who are at risk of needing their aid. I've not considered it until this video but will set up a debit for a regular contribution given the risks taken and the likelihood of needing them.

Must Watch: Gee Atherton Shares What Might Have Been in 'The Knife Edge'
I was thinking this too. The coast guard or mountain rescue are not part of the NHS and are volunteers, paid for by charitable contribution. I doubt the amount he earns from clicks will cover the costs of the operation to rescue him. So, will he cover the costs out of his own pocket? You know, so people who are just out for a hike and get caught out in fast changing weather have an MRT to help them in future? This goes for everyone, if you ride risky lines, subscribe to the cost of your rescue. I've needed it before; been stretchered out with a suspected broken back, broken bones and damaged ligaments. And I think I watched this and realised that I need to set up a debit to the charities that I might need again one day.

Video: GT's All-Star Lineup Rides the Force
They've had a lot of shifts between different suspension designs over the years... I think this is the first desirable GT since the Lobo!
