Hey, do you think this test would lead to a stiffer fork? Or no? Bike designers just decided to add hundreds of grams to forks for no reason?

And here's Tom Ritchey talking the deleterious effect of modern testing on fork suppleness. Go right to 34:35 and edify yourself (you should really watch the whole thing).

This thread is now out of control. One long time member has unfortunately quit the forum and now we’re into flat out personal attacks.

We’re talking about bicycle brakes folks. Why take this so personally? It’s really not that big of a deal. Infraction awarded and thread closed.
