3 Pro Enduro Bike Checks - EWS Madeira 2019
@WAKIdesigns: I agree fully. You may recall that I want more stiffness, not less, and that includes big waffly tires. I had a BIG gap between when I was riding all the time and now, and while I love most of what evolved in the lurch, smushy tires and super fluffy suspension aren't two of those things. Theres a lot that can be done with tire construction to get a good mix of compliance, traction, and stability. I just run more pressure. :/

Trust Chops $725 Off Their Linkage Fork
I got to ride one of these the other day in Hurricane, UT, and it was amazing. I mean, like, radically amazing, and most of what I want in a fork. But I paid less for my whole bike than this fork costs. So that's kind of a downer. I'll be going to the Park City Bike Demos reopening tomorrow evening, hopefully I can talk to their reps about their forks there. :D

@mullen119: That's cool with me, I'm just doubtful that "the best" is "better" by enough for me to care. :D At any rate, I'm all for choices and having Manitou back in the mix as a legit choice makes me happy. appreciate the Insta link

@WAKIdesigns: I hear ya there... I would be more specific to say that I want suspension to work the way it's designed to, and let physics do its thing, and let tires comply or not according to their design, but I don't want anything to FEEL flexy. I rode an old Diamondback TT with a Mag21 the other day and it felt like the whole thing was made of perhaps very firm noodles. DID NOT LIKE. and that 1mm difference is dumb, for the reasons you list. Carry on!

@WAKIdesigns: That's just because people are used to flexy parts. The suspension ought to do its work, and I, personally, want everything else as stiff as possible. I don't like feeling like everything is wobbling around underneath me.
