My Year as the BoXXer Trail Bike Guy - Jan. 12, 2021, 12:32 p.m.

This👆🏻. To me (probably less aggressive rider than R Walters) a triple crown is more forgiving because of the added travel I get from the same a/c. To be honest mine is almost too plush compared to the single crown I was running, which is not necessarily a bad thing unless your riding a pump track.

The weight is so close (at least with a boxxer, Nero) to a long travel single crown that it doesn’t matter, turning is a non issue, and I would be a lot less hesitant to buy a used triple as opposed to a used single crown.

I just switched from a single crown to dual crown on a large G1 and it’s great. Downside? People looking at you weird for having a DH fork when I ride easy trails with my kids. I also stuffed a 29” into a 27.5 boxxer and its tight but works fine for me, your mileage may vary. The reason I went that way is a 29 boxxer set to 180 has the same a/c as a 27.5 boxxer set at 200(Very close anyway and I get more squish). the Nero was a fork I was seriously looking at because up to this point I always ran manitou forks(which are fantastic) and the Nero has something very similar to manitou’s irt. Midstroke support is the only area where the boxxer seems to lack. Does anybody have any experience with the formula Nero r? It’s impossible to find any recent information on it.

2020 Öhlins TTX Air & RXF36 m.2 Air Review - Sept. 24, 2020, 10:11 a.m.

Aj- now that you have had your G1 for a while, do you still highly recommend it? I’m really interested in that frame and considering getting one. Since so many other companies are approaching the same geo numbers though, is there a clear advantage in your mind to spend the extra to get the G1?

Riding Tall With The Manitou Mezzer Pro IRT Fork - April 27, 2020, 12:28 p.m.

Currently I ride a mattoc pro on the shore and am reasonably happy with it, ( I don’t find it too flexy, great air spring, good damper) but like everyone, always looking for new and better. Is the mezzer that significant of an upgrade compared to a mattoc pro with irt? Particularly in stiffness and damper performance? I’m assuming that the air spring, once setup, is similar to the mattoc? If a mattoc is 90-95% of the performance of a mezzer then I don’t want to upgrade for small margins. Sorry for all the questions, but thanks for the detailed review!
