    Also the DHX RC2/RC4 is back to 1/2" shafts and no Boost Valve for 2014.

    Finally they are doing something right in the shock department... 5/8" was retarded and Boost Valve sucks.

    Especially considering that it didn't all come from the switch to an air spring. That 150g off the lowers will be noticeable.

    still with a coil negative spring. Weird.

    edit: looks like they already have tuning options available...good.

    Love the progressivity too..awesome adjustment.

    I think it may be, finally, the reason to say "hello, again" to triple crown fork, in the near future

    also, one thing that i've noticed fox does really really well... is ensuring backwards compatibility.

    No more hydraulic bottom out. So popping a coil in a 2014 is not ideal...

    It looks like they have done a good job with this one. I'm sure the boys at SRAM are scrambling to get something new on the table.

    Hope they don't scramble too hard... they might come up with something too good for us.
