    Trust fork in Norcal

    Anybody have it? What is the good and bad? Is it worth it?

    Our trails are tame and the income is high. What trails are you on exactly?

    So is it worth the $2700?

    Not worth 2700, I donít care how well it works.

    Only people Iíve seen riding it are shop owners or industry people.

    My buddy raves about it. But he hasn't been in the sport in the last 10 years. Josh from Jericho Cycles. I think he just likes the science of it.

    I'm trying to decide if I want to try it.

    Ron at Frame Up Bikes has one on one of his bikes. Haven't really asked him about it nor have I ridden it.

    I can't imagine something being 3x as good as a Pike. I get there are diminishing returns but I want for nothing with my Pike.

    I was fondling the one they had one on the shelf a short while ago. Amazing tech and the weight is silly light considering how bulky it appears.

    I read somewhere if you are making $400k here you can almost afford fancy bike parts.

    The youtube bloggers seem to love it, but the real ride reports from the joe-nobodys seem to hate it.

    Haven't seen such a wide array of love/hate since...well, since any fox fork from 2002-2016.

    ran into a guy that had one on an SB100...he didn't know it had a travel indicator (and thus didn't know if he'd ever used full travel or not).

    What are people supposed to do with $1000 credit? Buy another one when it breaks? I donít think they make any other products.

    the travel indicator is pretty much useless on the demo I had.
