Hi Streetdoctor,I’m on day 3 in St George. So far I’ve ridden the EXT with the mullet link and 29” wheel. I also ended up swapping to 170mm cranks. With the added 10mm of BB height in this setup and the shorter cranks I’ve purposely tried to hit my crank arms and haven’t. So far I’ve ridden guacamole, zen, and barrel. Pretty good mix of chunky XC tech, and higher speed downhill with a few doubles and bigger drops. No issues with the EXT bottoming with the mullet link either. IMO this is how the bike should have came. I switched back to the air shock to feel the difference today and plan on riding some harder stuff out East. I’ll probably spend one more day here and then head to Southern California for Sun-Wed.
Whta are you thinking about the EXT so far in the bike?
Do you think the EXT will hold and not break apart at some point like Fox shox will? Hope the thicker 14mm Alu shaft is enough...Instead of 9.5mm steel
I'll order the Float X2 shock and think later also the EXT if I hear nothing bad. . I'm running my bikewith the stock link now but I'm looking forward for the caascade link. I don't have any issues with the low BB. I like it and I think I get more grip with it.
