EXT Racing Shox Updates Custom Tuned Coil Offerings for 2019
Best shock I have ever run. I supply them with my Starling Cycles frames and all of my customers say the same. Amazing shock!

Review: Cube's 29" Downhill Bike - the Two15 SL
@doe222: Reach is generally shorter as stack with long forks is greater. Try to keep the same distance between hands and feet.

Titanium, Carbon Fiber, and a 220mm Dropper Post - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
Gotta agree, compliance in a frame is one of the most important things for grip and control. But it's very difficult to quantify, so big manufacturers like state it's x% stiffer as a bullshit performance metric. Unfortunately, people start believing the lies!

Agreed on the Onyx! But the problem with the belts and my design is that the Jackshaft cogs would be quite large. The bigger they are the more the chainline is offset from the main pivot, the more pedal forces you get. The Profile cogs I use are super small and give negligible pedal forces.

@PHILXX1975: My Factory bikes have ISO testing complete. The UK made Swoop and Murmur frames are substantially similar enough that they can be passed by comparison. I am happy the detail differences do not affect strength. Remember my last day job was as an aerospace stress engineer, this stuff is pretty bread and butter to me. As for riding testing. I have over 150 customer bikes out being ridden. As they are all custom bikes, I have a an ongoing relationship and feedback from a good majority of them. On top of this I have always had a race team, including a National champion and many national level wins. These riders are also geographically close and give me lots of feedback. I think this is one of Starling strengths, the fact I can build prototypes with quick turnaround and get feedback. Very different to companies designing bikes by CAD then having a six months cycle between design and samples.
