Review: Raaw Madonna V3 - Yes, It's Still Great
The only reason I haven't pulled the trigger yet is that my Madonna v1 is still going strong. Sigh. When the product is too good to replace with the improved version of the same product...

That is not what happens. The moment that the stanchions stop is always when the tires have expanded and start compressing again. In that moment, the tires take all or most of the compression force. Tires are mostly springs without damping: They bounce up and down multiple times during one landing in those HTFs. Every time they get compressed, they immediately want to expand again. They move faster than the damped suspension, so that is why they can expand while the center of gravity of bike+rider is still moving towards the ground. Some time during expansion, the compressive force is stronger again and the tire starts compressing *again*, and during that time the lower part of the fork moves down, "escaping" the stanchions. You see that as "stopping to move", but in reality all the force is still being taken up by the whole system of tires, forks, flex, rider.

Video: Looking Back On 7 Years of RAAW
V1 owner from the first batch sold here. Would love to upgrade, but the v1 is more reliable and durable than my body. Even after my last crash that made me pause for almost a season, all I had to do was swap the hanger and count some more dents. Madonna lives forever. Best, most durable and longest owned MTB I ever had. Easy to work on. Swapped a few bearings, lots of hangers, derailleurs, cables, brake lines. Major bearing swap “on a whim” (creaking was bad) on a Thursday evening, went riding again on Friday (super silent).

Geo Announces Derailleur Guard
So you tell me to spend 25 bucks to not be able to show off my bling derailleur anymore? Need a transparent version and double the price!
