Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
Lots of new standard claim to increase stiffness. Firstly, lets have some independent testing to prove this is the fact. Some simple fag packet calcs I've performed show Boost increase spoke component of lateral wheel stiffness by 5%. Add in stiffness from rim, flexier fork crown, tyres... And the overall effect is likely to be two tenth of fuck all! But it's a relatively complex system and some real world values could easily be achieived by simple lab tests. These result should be published. Thie will help blow a lot of bollox standard out of the water. Secondly who said stiffness is better. A bit of compliance is good in my opinion. Increased stiffness is just a nice metric for marketing! I'd love Pinkbike, or any ma, to do an article; get an old Cannondale Prophet with all the best component from the same era. And compare to a modern bike. I think it may weigh a bit more for equivalent capability, but I think it would be equivalent capability! Certainly only marginal gains at best!

For sale is a bit of Italian exotica; an EXT Storia 215x63mm shock. Featured in the Dirt 100: https://dirtmountainbike.com/bike-reviews/forks-suspension/ext-storia-shock.html This is a slightly older version without the lockout, but the suspension behaviour is still unrivaled. Unfortunately, the shock doesn't suit the linear leverage ratio of my frame and is surplus to requirements. Would be amazing on a frame with a progressive ratio. Frame comes with choice of 375, 325 or 275 lbf/in springs. Stiffest and softest spring are SA hollow steel lightweight version which retail for £100. 325 spring is Nukeproof and I'll knock £25 off price if you want this one. Does not include shock hardware. £385 posted.

For sale is my Fox X2, 215x63mm shock. It has had the air can replaced under warranty by Mojo to resolve publicised design fault and only used lightly since. Perfect condition. Decals have been replaced with original Fox gold version. Works beautifully, but surplus to my requirements. Hardware not included. £385 posted.

What if You Could Design Your Dream Bike? - Pinkbike Poll
I suspect the results are an average of what's commercially available! Plus maybe a small incremental amount. Essentially what the average of bikes next year will be.

For sale is my Fox 34 Factory Kashima Fit 4 fork. It is for 29" wheels and has 140mm travel. But can be increased to 150mm (or reduced), by Mojo. Fork is for 15mm Non Boost front with QR. Steerer tube is 180mm. Fork is in good condition with only small scruffs to the lowers. Stanchions and seals are in good condition. Forks have not had enough riding to require a service, but were checked over by Mojo when I was there recently.
