For all the 575 riders who have come from a 4 bar linkage bike to the 575, have you noticed any brake jack with the 575?

Also, I am interested in riding impressions of the new Fox shock on a 575.

Thanks.

Can't say as I have - but then I wasn't on a pure 4bar jobbie pre 575. I actually think the spv on my minute is causing less brakedive than my old setup (Ventana/White Bros) so I'm staying more level anyhoo.

Mind you, I've firmly of the opinion that you can't catagorise suspension as "4-bar" or "McPherson" and then expect similar designs to behave the same way. There are far too many other variables. What you need to do is ride what you're interested in and like/dislike it...

Or do what I did, buying my 575 untested on Yeti's rep and reccommendation, and be prepared to get used to a slightly different style. I should point out that my 575 runs rings around anything else I've ridden.

Brake jack is slighly less than on my old 3" 4bar bike. Noticable if I'm looking for it, but not an issue if I just ride.
