Ah well that narrows it down a lot. Rockshox is a great option then as they have limited adjustments and narrow tuning windows. Fox tends to have every adjustment available and huge tuning ranges which can be a nightmare to set up for those not used to spending hours fine tuning on all there top line 38 forks but their now sister company Marzocchi makes exactly the same fork but with simpler damper adjusters which is more user friendly with just the basic low speed compression/rebound.I don't want to spend my ride trying to dial something in. So something around the 35/36mm stanchion size should be sufficient.
Hmmm coil maybe, I've recently made the switch to coil on the back and have been loving the sensitivity of it compared to the air. One less thing to worry about and check air pressures on to which is nice, sometimes I spend more time checking pressure and settings in shock,fork,tyres than I do actually riding haha
Because I already have a rear shock and I don't want to be messing around with springs in the front, plus I do like the natural progression of air forksWhat's the bother with coil? I'm enjoying the simplicity of it compared to air and just one less thing to worry about.
I'm sure they are good, but I'm not throwing cash at a shock, when what I need is a fork, pedals, handlebars etc etcYes the linear nature of the coil was the biggest thing I noticed when I made the switch but I offset it by running more high speed compression which sorted it out. Still doesn't quite match the end stroke ramp up I got with my air which had the can full of the max amount of volume reduces I could fit plus some extra areas of electrical tape to reduce it even further. Plus they make progressive coil springs now which I'm keen to have a play with. I've been swapping over from coil to air every month or so just to change it up and they are both great but in different ways.
I am a huge fan of this young bloke, right from when I saw him first race. Many said that he wouldn't amount to much but watching how he rode and the smarts about positioning and when to put the hammer down, was what I was looking at. Those people,e are now eating humble pie and I keep throwing at them.
Yeh komoot is pretty cool
I use it with my lezyne GPS. Pretty good integration
