    Video: MRP launches the Stage, a new all-mountain fork

    MRP is going to dyno test every fork they sell? That would be a first I have heard of such a high level of quality control. I hope these forks perform as well as the video suggest. Will they see the light in Canada.? i hope so!

    Beatdown: Traction Control

    I have pro pedal on my DHX shock it has a switch like the DB air. I find the pro pedal to be a useless gimmick. The more sensitive the suspension the better it works. Up or down. One gets hung up because of riding style. If you want to blame your bike. Good for you. What ever floats your boat.

    That could work. Make an internal structure out of plastic to place the Carbon fiber on to. Mind you. One could carve styrofoam and save weight.

    Matter: Marzocchi Bomber Z1

    When this fork came out. Every other fork was a toy in comparison. I bought one asap and put it on my hard tail. Everyone thought I was crazy putting a four inch travel fork on a hard tail. Up set the geometry they said............. My 55Rc3,s are a refinement of the original z1.

    Old Bike Should I keep and upgrade parts or buy new? Suggestions

    The Spesh has 29 inch wheels. no rear suspension and a crappy fork. I own a Warp it lasted for many years of hard abuse. Had a super t up front. Find a second hand fork and put new cables on the warp. Maybe a mech disk brake up front. For a bargain bike the Warp rides like champ. Works best...

    Fox 36 is back

    They increased the amount of low speed compression damping. So its less plush. So it beats the crap out of you on long rides. Just like the Park 180! All that feed back from riders complaining that the fork moves too much. Cant have that.
