Happy Vallumtimes Day

Sadly, we're unable to get a show out this week. The last several weeks have been awful in terms of people being sick, long day-job hours and various commitments. Call it a Winter break, if you must. Yeah, that's it. We're back next week with a full show with news, opinions, feedback and all the goodness. Want a teaser...? HONDA! So, go hit the card store, get your sweetheart something pretty and enjoy the upcoming weekend by NOT thinking about burly, hairy (except the bald one) podcasters moping around in snow and ice, barely remembering how to even start a motorcycle, much less ride one. Happy Vallumtimes Day.

  1. Love the podcast. I noticed a lot of new bikes now have upside down forks. What are the pros and cons vs standard forks? Thanks

  2. Hey there. I’m sorry; I thought I had already responded to this, but I can’t find the response. :\

    The simplest answer is: weight. The less weight you have to move at the end of the suspension, the faster the wheel and suspension can react to road surface changes. The smaller tubes and axle mounting assemblies on a USD fork setup are typically lighter and smaller than a “conventional” full lower leg. Combined with lighter-weight wheels, lighter calipers and mounting hardware, the overall weight savings on unsprung weight (the weight below the spring) can be quite considerable, this resulting in faster-reacting and more confident suspensions.
