if you ppl would click on links i post you would know what it is: canyon has a patent on a method to alterate the geometry of the bike by a second damping element inside the rocker link, that's why there are 2 fox ctd remote switches on his bike…

Calm down Euro-bro. :france:

just kidding, I know you're not French.

I think we should pretend Sethimus didn't post a link, and spend some time on speculation:

I think it's where Fabien keeps a spare sandwich in case he gets hungry on a long transfer.

don't seetoo many fox guys on 34 any more…

Why do you say that? Are they switching to 36's?

is going big on a bike the only way to get you stoked on the sport? what happened to riding with your bros, travelling, and riding unique places, to get people stoked on riding?

fines are useless. there needs to be more punches to the throat.

i think the new 36 is just as light as the 34 but offers more rigidity needed for the terrain and speed of the course

all of the fox-fork equipped bikes i've seen pictures of from chillan have been sporting 36s. maybe its just/mostly a case of fox wanting to get their newest shiny as much exposure as possible. but i imagine their athletes are happy; i suspect that given their druthers, any gravity rider with a choice would opt for the increased stiffness of a 36 over a 34, to say nothing of the benefits of a real (rc2 vs ctd) damper

I can see that. I sold my Lyrik in the fall and just bought a brand new Float 34 off a friend. It's my first Fox fork and so far all I can say is Meh.

I perused the 36 down at Sea Otter and found out the axle-crown is the same and in some cases actually lower than the 34. I don't think stiffness was as much as issue as the damping cartridge in the 34.

The CTD is just goofy

Looks like Graves blew it on the last stage. Must have been the wheel size.

The 2015 Factory forks have a 7-click Trail Adjust knob - it's just two years too late.
