I’m with you. There’s nothing more annoying than a company creating a product to a non existent problem.LOL MUST HAVE
It is impossible to build an "idiot proof" machine. Meaning, someone will always manage to break every part on any machine eventually. You jump a machine high enough and land on one front wheel, something is going to give. I believe I saw one of those pictures somewhere else, and the guy had driven into a tree and broke the shock mount.
Another quote that jumps out at me.
"You wont hear or see much about this issue anywhere but here."
If this was an actual issue, you would be hearing about it EVERYWHERE! We all know how fast news spreads when a common issue pops up.
They are so proud of this product that there is not even a picture of it. I'm not going to say that any extra bracing isn't a good thing, especially if you like to push your machine to the limits, but all I see here is a marketing scare tactic to try and boost sales.
Is this more common out west? I can’t say I recall seen anyone running them out east in the 12 years I’ve been riding. We primarily ride tighter woods trails though.It’s just a good idea for anyone, but particular when you’re running a heavier tire. The only thing stopping the stroke of the suspension is the shock body.
No.. I’m in Ky. It’s just a good idea if your machine is coming to full droop. Whether that be in the technical stuff and rocks or jumping or just hard riding. They’ll help save CV’s and abuse to the shocks.Is this more common out west? I can’t say I recall seen anyone running them out east in the 12 years I’ve been riding.
