i think the biggest upgrades in the future will be adaptive electronic suspension.. something like what lappiere has produced in the past but a lot more refined. We might get lucky and score a version of e-tapp that sram has (wireless shifting.. no cables or wires).. other than that.. I dont...
I can check the trail change for you if you want.. just not going ti have time until tomorrow.
What is the current HA? What is your current fork offset and your future fork offset? What overall diameter is your tyre? Or at least what size tyre do you use?
Sorry my bad.. was thinking about something else.
But essentially yes, increasing the offset to decrease the increased trail (due to the taller tyres).
With that being said, if you are running a 26fork with a large offset already, you shouldn't really notice the switch across to a 650 fork...
Only thing is that there is less of an offset with the 650 fork.. to reduce the trail so that the fork is still flicky without sacrificing any grip due to the longer contact patch.. plus the taller tyre gives the effect off an offset anyway.
The shock is still a shock.. they made an improvement on their old design with more bush overlap.. wow.. because clearly that cannot be done with another shock.. or the evolution that comes with each year's newer designs.
The gains of you going to metric as opposed to let's say a push shock...
So there is no performance gains.. just a different sized shock that will help designers with frames..
Let me put it this way.. grab your current top of the line shock, swap it with a metric shock. No difference at all.
As much as i hate boost.. it actually is stiffer, allowing a 29er...
f150 velociraptor... job done. No need for anything else.. fits two Moto's, can do shuttles, awesome off-road and fast. Heck, it even has fox racing shocks all round with big beefed up aluminium components.
only negatives, cost & fuel.
