    Strengths:    Top Quality. Custom tuned for rider, bike and terrain

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    An expensive but worthy upgrade to my old SixPack. This is my first coil shock so I can't compare to other coils, but the Avy Chubie has transformed the bike. The custom tune is spot on, basically bolt on and ride. The downhill performance was greatly improved as expected, but I was pleasantly surprised on how well it performs on the steep, rocky and technical climbs.

    Strengths:    Design custom tuning workmanship

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    This is about as good as it gets Craig at avalanche is so good on getting the shock tuned just right for bike and setup on riding type and how the ratios of travel for frame made the bike a whole new bike. Don't walk run and order this shock . If your into suspension and want the best this is it.

    Strengths:    Great construction, absolutely amazing performance. High-low speed compression adjuster actually adjusts high and low speed compression and is usefull. Works better than anything else out there arguably.

    Weaknesses:    None.

    Bottom Line:   
    When you bolt this shock on and ride, you'll finally realize what your suspension is capable of. It's an amazing ride and it does what is advertised. It is custom made for your riding habits and bike, and nothing else compares.
