luis, if the '09 has the smaller can, it will probably be a little better. Still, it only moves the soft spot around some, but it will probably help with easy a bottomout if you run the right main chamber pressure and piggyback setup. Frequently having to reach down and fiddle with the Propedal lever is a PITA IMO.luisberi said:thanks TNC, that was really usefull...
but what you think about the 09´dhx air model, that has the half turn pro-pedal, and if i´m gonna hit a drop i could easily turn up, or down if i´m just pedalling around... maybe i could find a pressure that suits my riding, a compromise between AM/FR, and then according to what i´m gonna find ahead switch the pro pedal?
by the way, whats your weight?
I wasn't even going to go there to avoid the appearance of being a Manitou schill, but since you brought it up, my take is that the ISX-6 is probably the best long travel air shock made right now. Especially for a Bullit, I would also consider the X4, which is really just a newer generation 4-Way Air. The Bullit works extremely well with Maintiou's SPV rear shock. They worked well with the old 5th E coil, but the damping was a bit heavy. Manitou has better damping to work with the SPV IMO.luisberi said:thanks to both of you... probably i would buy a dhx 5.0 if wasnt you...
i think i would stick to manitou swinger air 4x, or maybe the Manitou Evolver ISX-6 2008???
thanks and... santacruz rules!
TNC I've been waiting for this....TNC said:I wasn't even going to go there to avoid the appearance of being a Manitou schill, but since you brought it up, my take is that the ISX-6 is probably the best long travel air shock made right now.
