I'm increasingly of the opinion (my opinion) that RockShox was not wrong when
they released their first long travel (4″) trail fork as a double crown (Judy
XL / SID XL). If you deliver the offset in the crowns instead on the wheel
like Specialized did with their late-90s Future Shock forks on the Enduro
(great idea / crappy performance) then the only real issue -- knee contact
climbing out of the saddle -- is a non issue.
Benefits of a dual crown (admittedly there would probably be some weight
penalty): replaceable stanchions, no creaking, way less load on steerer, way
more room to play with air volume, damper design, and for lubrication thanks
to taller stanchions.
