Why do you Canucks have nothing but negative comments (Trump or guns . . . .
Etc) about the USA but exit your liberal province by the thousands daily to
shop and ride down here? And which it's capital spews raw sewage into puget
Steve, would you say engineer's at these big suspension companies have design
or budget limitations that hold them back or maybe your just more clever?! I
have seen guys at nationals (pro-grt) that run +50 psi in their DH casing
tires. Suspension set-up is very important, as you have said!
Darren, thanks for the reply. I have more questions like "looks like shim
stack on comp side of piston only?, cartridge used for rebound? How's that
work with high-low speed rebound? Are mt. Bike specific susp. Fluids Really
diff. From MX stuff? How did you keep the shock from wallowing without
completely sealing off shim stack (pressure drop)? "This is all stuff and more
that shocks coming out now still have not dealt with. . . . . Etc. But another
time. Thanks again
Anyone can make a shock feel smooth in the parking lot, but pot holes and
chatter bumps on a down hill course at speed. . . . . ? The pressure drop
behind the piston on rapid movements will cause cavatation by pulling gas and
air bubbles out of the suspension fluid. This you can feel as you lose damping
control. I know Ohlins (gasp. . . . . ) has figured out how to deal with this.
11-6? Never rode one as they are pretty elusive!
