Review: EXT ERA V2.1 Fork
I'm continuously dual positive chamber curious. From a linearity standpoint it makes sense. But most journalist reviews I read, tend to tip the hat to my trusty Fox 38. Especially as a light rider and I read Ohlins, Manitou, and EXT can be overdamped gives me pause for trying dual chamber fork..

UPDATE: Nukeproof, Vitus, Chain Reaction Cycles & Wiggle Face Uncertainty as Parent Company in Financial Trouble
Looks like Vitus has shut down their US website and orders. That said the frame I want at is discounted on Wiggle/CRC. I assume they are still fulfilling orders? I received my last Wiggle order here in the US back in late August.

First Ride: Orbea Occam SL & LT
@Muscovir: Yes true. And I read in the Rallon documentation you can run a longer stroke shock (at least with 29er link) to get 170mm of travel. I see reasons to get either bike, but the differences are more subtle.

First Ride: Orbea Occam SL & LT
What surprises me is, we're not seeing even more rapid development on the eBike side of things. Orbea was one of the first to release a lightweight eBike in the Rise. That bike is due for an update and I'll like to see a Rise LT or Wild SL with the same geometry as the Ralllon/Occam LT. At that point, such a bike would replace my Rallon and I'll likely get a downcountry/XC bike for my acoustic bike.

First Ride: Orbea Occam SL & LT
I'm impressed with how Orbea is filled up their product line. As a Orbea Rallon owner though, now I see huge overlap between the Occam LT and Rallon. Outside of 10mm of travel and ability to run mullet on the Rallon, their geometry and suspension kinematics are nearly identical. Obviously the build kits are bit different, but the Rallon itself is one of the lightest enduro bikes on the market.

Bike Check: Florencia Espineira's Orbea Rallon
I'm 165cm and 67kg - and run the F38 at 82psi - but no volume spacers, though I may add 1 spacer back. Is Flo running custom shim stack for her GRIP2 damper? I'm running the Rebound settings fully open.

Ibis Launches New Vietnam Made Exie
Interesting - but the new branding is still on the website? Maybe these were made and painted before the rebrand, but supply chain didn't get them state side until now?
