    Good point - I should have added the word numerical in front of ratio, but given this is the internet I trust you wholeheartedly.

    Actually, pi is not a ratio, and this is in fact the definition of an irrational number (unable to be represented as a ratio of two integers). Fun fact: 22/7 deviates from pi by the third decimal...

    New Works Components offset headset cups

    Thought I'd throw in a word for Works Components, recently got some simultaneously offset and angled cups for myself and a friend. Both of us are running +1 steeper (which still leaves us at 62.6* on...

    I'd personally take the small shaft RC4 over the '14 Vivid, purely because the Fox shock is a higher quality and more reliable damper in my experience. Just confirm with your service center that your...

    I too would go with the small shaft RC4 and removing the boost valve. I'm running the same setup myself happily, and recently put a faster friend on the same thing and he loves it.

    You're missing the point, the key issue is large variations in mass distribution and thus normal forces, thus friction (traction) forces. In the case of DH racing in particular (as well as the...

    I tend to agree with Sandwich, while it may not have a huge impact on bump absorption, there are acceleration benefits to be had due to a greater impact on the AS curve. Not sure about "200% not...

    You can placebo yourself into thinking that all you like, but the reality is that the internal volume of the 40 is huge, and the oil volume (let alone the miniscule volume of the bumpers) makes very...

    Sounds like an incorrect IFP depth setting to me as Bikerpunk suggested.



    Not the case with RC4. New design and hard anodized, haven't seen any failures personally.

    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....

    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.

    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.
