I was watching your video on "3 Affordable Full Suspension Mountain Bikes" and I must say that you've given me inspiration. I'm going to be 45 soon and only got into MTB four years ago. Every year I've been getting better but also older... I was starting to get worried that my riding days will be over as I reach 50, but after watching the gnarly trails you went down on so easily at 65 years old, I realize that I have many more years of MTB enjoyment. So THANK YOU for inspiring us "older folks" and keep on riding! (Great video by the way. I'm one of those who believes that $3K is the sweetspot for a highly capable bike without breaking the bank. If I get downhill 5 seconds slower or climb 2 minutes slower - that's fine; I'm not competing with anyone - just keeping fit and enjoying nature). All the best, Ron Irvine, CA

4 Affordable Trail Bike Forks Ridden & Rated
@nielsvk: I quoted Levy's review in reference to the Grip damper only - it was a bit revolutionary when it debuted in 2016. The Giant Trance 2 was the test bike I put the most time with using the Rhythm fork. I kept that bike for quite a while. In response to your comment I addressed the Sweep dial in the text. Thanks for giving me some slack on that one.

@nielsvk: So that's why the author linked each section to the reviews where he rode the forks?

@hcmoore: Desperate times require desperate measures. Look for "front squisher" in a future article.

While fact checking the article, The Fox website stated that the Performance 34's Grip damper has a three-position compression dial, so I went with that to be safe (https://www.ridefox.com/family.php?m=bike&family=34s) - As that was the only fork in this group I did not still have in my workshop to physically inspect. Levy's review also noted the same three positions, so I probably missed the memo.

loosely, "slider" is slang for a fork and, to further confuse, 'sliders" is used to describe the fork's lower half. Just searching for nouns to avoid repetition - the bane of technical writing.

Review: Marzocchi's New Bomber Z2 Fork is Impressive & Affordable
@winko: Yes, the older Marzocchi dampers had oil in the entire damper side's lower leg. The new system has all the oil contained inside the fork stanchion.
