Awesome report. Thanks for the update. I like the Tecate roost. If your going to roost your buddy, why not roost em in Tecate...you da man.
Interesting thoughts about the spring rates and a great idea to look at the YZ + the extra weight. That is really more relevant than the Dakar reference.
I don't think that Skibum had data on his spring rates. Just word of mouth from the guy that sold him the forks...maybe he has an update because it would be good to know.
I am interested to see what is recommended by my buddy at House of Horsepower. I still like the idea of a progressive rate spring because of the variation in weight between wife and no-wife and the 40% on-road that I will be doing.
Thanks for the most excellent feed back Rob. I will keep you posted of the caliper/axle developments.
