    It's not a "classic single pivot" for anything.

    Braking characteristics are different from any SP because the IC varies over the travel (unlike an SP which has a fixed IC), and generalising a...

    It's actually not. While there's nothing wrong with a well designed single pivot anyway, that implies a single constant radius arc over the axle path, whereas this design allows deviation from that....

    Every time an MTB suspension company decides to implement a non-conventional damper valve, it ends up performing worse and offering less internal and external adjustability (see SPV, CVT, BV, TST,...

    I wonder if your 6.5 is actually a 6.5, maybe you were given the x-firm 7.7 by accident or something was mislabeled. If you have a friend running the 6.5, see if you can borrow the spring for a few...

    Yeah, have ridden a few Idylle RaRe airs - I thought they felt decent but under-sprung for me so was hard to make a fair comparison.

    I find it's pretty easy to make suspension feel great from a...

    If you've owned any Commencal for 2 years and it hasn't broken yet, I'd say you're running on borrowed time. Do the swap, but give the kid a fake number and name if asked, as it'll save hassle later.

    I've worked on two now where the miniscule single coil spring (literally half the size of a Fox or RS...

    Thanks for that. Are you aware of the actual part numbers, or a listing of them and which colors correspond to available rates? Pricing? I have an orange (it's a WC fork) which I'm positive is firmer...

    Yeah I've had the same issue with Boxxers I've done for people, those seals feel incredible but don't last particularly long. I've experienced the same thing with spring side failures being more...

    The 35mm Boxxer chassis works fine in my experience. The friction a lot of people are referring to is most commonly traced back to the stock seals, and/or using incorrect oils which actually causes a...

    I think this post is misleading at best, and incorrect on a few counts.

    1. Fox haven't continually refined anything to do with the 40 lowers, they've been virtually unchanged from 2005-2013 apart...

    Does anyone have a list of negative spring colors and their correlating rates?

    It's absurd that Fox aren't offering different springs for sale, and beyond that also want people to send the fork...

    As tacubaya suggests, don't run 20ml unless you like worn stanchions.

    50ml/leg is the spec, I usually run 60ml for a larger contaminant buffer (as do a few good service centers). There is still...

    Yes to all. You can add more shims or replace them with thicker shims, the replacement option will generate heavier damping but both options work fine in this case. I usually recommend duplicating...
