Welcome back to another episode of Ask GMBN Tech, where we try to answer all of your complex, scary, niche, and technical questions about mountain bikes and MTB-related tech! ⏱ Timestamps πŸ‘‡ 00:00 - Intro 00:22 - Where to start high & low-speed rebound setup? 04:52 - What's more important: A good suspension fork or rear shock? 07:47 - Does Kashima coating give you a statistical advantage? 08:44 - Why does modern suspension keep reducing hydraulics performance? I find that compared to older models, recent shocks and forks tend to have very "open" shims, giving very low support under weight shifts. 11:21 - Why can't they sort out small bump sensitivity. These bikes cost a small fortune. Yet the handling is shocking out of the box. 12:51 - What’s the worst that can happen if I remove my air shock and install a coil? 14:18 - Why did single pivots go by the wayside when they clearly work well?
