    Pushlock feature question

    Hi, the pushlock feature is supossed to completely block the suspension fork, so the bike becomes a fully hard bike, right? I've been testing some bikes with this feature, and in some the feature doesnt block the bike, there is a bit of difference when the feature is on and off, but it still...

    Rockshox Reba RL 2011 and 2013 editions

    Hi, im thinking about buying this fork (Rockshox Reba Rl) and I have seen in internet that on average the 2011 model has better ratings as the 2013 edition. Has the model or the mark experienced a reduction in its quality?

I find...

    travel-adjust feature on a suspension fork

    Hi, At first I wanted to get a Rockshox Reba RL 100 mm 27,5'' for my mountain bike, but the one I found comes with a pushlock feature, not a travel-adjust. What travel adjust forks would you recommend, on par with the Reba RL? (entry level)

    Have you compared 160 mm and 1809 mm disc brakes?

    Corrected thread title: "Have you compared 160 mm and 180 mm disc brakes?" If so, which ones would you recommend? Is it a good idea to use a 180 mm for the back wheel and a 160 mm for the front wheel? And the other way round?

    Full suspension mountain bike and accesories

    Hi, Today I tested several full suspension bikes and the difference with fork suspension bikes on harsh terrain is very noticeable. Would you add front or rear racks, mud-guards, panniers, a handlebar bag and a luggage carrier to it?
