My 2017 Fox 34 Factory was installed on my Yeti in October, 2016. I’ve biked about 3+ months since then and have not crashed. Really amazing for me. I’m really good at going over the handlebars and not getting hurt. I’m going to lose that skill.
I’m riding much more technical than previously, as is my wife who now has the same fork. Starting to do crazy shit like about half of the drop-in to Horsethief Bench near Fruita, CO and part of Flying Monkey in Virgin, UT. I’ve become fearless…
I will never ride a Rock Shox again. If a demo bike has a Pike I’m waling away.
I have a new theory. When riders say you have to have the technical skills to ride Rock Shox, it really means they figured out hacks for the poor design. Of course they are proud of their hacks, err, skills, they earned them. For the rest of us there is Fox.
