I've thought about getting an Avi Cart in my Talas RLC 34. Can't get full travel out of the fork unless I run less air pressure, then it sits really low and blows thru the travel easily.

Issue is once I order 1 cart, I'll have to order 2 more.

Plan is to buy no new bikes this year, but upgrades are kosher

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

Craig doesnt roll like that.

Yah, he's more of an engineer geek type when you talk to him. It's like talking shop with an engineer that knows way too much and speaks to you like you know exactly what he's talking about. Kind of a funny conversation actually.

I´ve never actually dealt with Avalanche.
But in almost a decade of message board trolling/participation I´ve never EVER heard something negative about Avalanche.

I still remember their quirky CHUBIE piggyback shocks - even those were loved.

That lack of criticism makes actually a very, very good impression IMHO.
I´d most definitely say that Avalance must be pretty awesome as a company.
They don´t seem to be capitalistic sharks, but rather someone who actually makes a living in the literal sense out of something he´s really passionate about.

I tested an Avy cartridge for SuspensionWerx to give some feedback. I liked it so much I bought it off James. 3 years running and still like new. I bought one for my Lyrik last year as well. Light years ahead what RS or Fox is putting out now.

Enjoy! I had to "tone down" the mid stroke adjustment a bit. But I am not a super agresive rider.
