    i'm wondering if a trust fork will dissolve if it's not mounted to the front of an evil or pivot? :twitch:

    It probably morphs into an RST on non Weagle designed bikes though...

    Well, for the price of the fork they should just throw in a 130mm travel bike for free with it?

    My main gig is in corporate retail, you wouldn't believe the amount of effort that goes into packaging. It seems like a waste but it really is necessary w/ how competitive things are these days. The TRUST box does seem over the top but it is really nice, I am sure that was just an initial launch thing, betting we see that packaging slowly change over the next couple years.

    Shimano packaging always impresses me, open high end parts and the box is a display case for the main piece, all the little parts hidden, nothing can scratch another piece.

    Damn rich box engineers.

    Wanna get rich? start a contest show where you give 45 seconds or less to people for unpacking shit, and then putting back again inside the same box, the same way it was packed.

    hammer, bolt cutters, death wheel. I WILL get in.

    It might, however, negate the "protective" aspect.......

    I had a look and his show is a funny concept but wearing a neck tie in a machine shop would have given my high school shop teacher a heart attack. Crazy Brits.

    to be fair, he does usually tuck in the tie when operating rotating machinery. it's a carefully curated brand image.

    My British grandfather would wear a jacket and tie everyday, when he had to mow the lawn or change the oil in his car he would just put on a pair of overalls.

    Here's a Jeff Kendall Weed video with that crazy trust fund fork.



    That JKW dude sure did put on a clinic. Perhaps a bit too many trials moves for me, but still a fun watch.

    I can’t help but note he spent a huge amount of that video with the front wheel in the air. You know, not actually using the suspension part of the fork :D

    On the flip side, he seemed fine with plenty of those “slap down” landings which are supposed to be super harsh…
