    because with similar drivers, 11 inches of beautiful travel will win a race against 16 inches of ok travel.

    if the secondary shock were a smnooth body, that's be pretty pointless, but the fact that it's a multistage bypass, makes it worth the money in tunability. imagine being able to have the first 2 inches of travel tuned fery sorft to absorb the small iregularities in the trail, while maintaining a cadillac type of ride. then inches 3 and 4 of travel are valved a little stiffer, to take the whoops, and inches 5 and 6 are extremely heavily valved, to take the big jumps without punching a bump stop through your lower control arm on landing. i'm not sure if it has that many bypass tubes, but that's the general principal/reasoning behind a setup like that.

    they are, but when you're the only ones to make them, you get to set the price. i do believe there was another company making billit uppers a year or two ago, but i haven't seen anything since their initial release, so i'm guessing they went under of took the arms out of production.
