    Frame advice, Devinci Wilson, Demo 8 or other?

    I will preface this by saying I am a hack past my prime. But I would say Wilson as well. 5'10" and on a large I almost feel top tube could be longer. The bike can monster truck, but it still corners really well. It was between a demo and a Wilson for me and I just never felt comfortable...

    Mont Sainte Anne (CAN) 2013 World Cup #4

    I would guess some sort of mechanical. Either that or he needs longer chainstays.

    2010 Marzocchi 888 Evo tuning thread

    I would think that either your oil levels are not to spec, or the volume adjuster o-ring is shot. To check the o-ring -Remove your rebound adjuster -slowly remove the volume adjuster (there is a detent ball that will shoot out sideways, so be careful) -undo your top cap, loosen crown bolts...

    2010 Marzocchi 888 Evo tuning thread

    I would not use more than 5 clicks of the volume adjust (when Ronnie was still at Marzocchi he said using more was causing problems with the fork), if you want more progression add more oil to the damper side 10cc at a time. I weigh 190 lbs with gear and am running a fox blue spring (sits...

    Vallnord DHI 2013...

    Gee has always looked slow to me for this reason (he is obviously not). Riders who smash through everything also tend to look faster to me as opposed to guys who ride up, over, and around obstacles, using there legs and arms to absorb everything instead of their suspension.

    Complete Guide to Downhill Rubber

    Maxxis, make this now in a 2.4, or 2.5 and I will buy it. All the good of the Muddy Mary without to stupid angle on the side nobs.

    Vallnord DHI 2013...

    From Pinkbike Photo description "Aaron Gwin made a few changes for this week following a round of testing back in the USA. He is back on a medium frame but with a custom longer swingarm to better suit his off-the-back style. It arrived just in time, as the track here in Andorra is steep and...

    got the new pike...

    I can see why someone would be interested in a dual crown fork in lower travel. Every single crown I have ever had (fox, marz, rockshox) have ended up being creaky. And if the axcel to crown is the same or lower I don't see how there would be any additional stress.

    Keep running Minion DHF's or try something new?

    Continental Der Baron, best tire I've tried. Better grip than the Minion and lasts way longer.

    Bulls - Wild Core Project - new DH bike

    Minus a bb concentric linkage, reminds me of the corsair maelstrom in 8" travel. Despite quality issues the Maelstrom was one of the best riding bikes I ever owned. Very interesting...

    2014 Fox 40 issue

    You have explained it fine, the negative spring is to stiff for 50 psi to overcome the springrate of the negative spring you have. You need to call fox and ask them what negative spring you need if you want/need to run that low of pressure in the fork. Steve's post above explains this perfectly.
