I built my 7 with the RC4 after demo'ing ones set up with both that and the RP23. My rationalization was/is that if you think you want the extra travel and capability (over the 575 and any number of other, lighter 5-6" bikes) then why not go the plush route? The 7 is really just an overgrown cross country bike (vs. a downhill or freeride bike with similar travel) but it is just unbelievable how fast you can go through rough terrain. BIG fun!joltz said:So I know you can get the 7 with the RP23 or DHXRC4. Which one would you go with and why?
I've also heard of some peeps running a coil on their 7. Can you order the frame without a shock?
