To be honest I only have one street ride and one good trail ride on it so far, I am still experimenting with the setup and will admit my riding style is probably pretty tame compared to most people. I started with the Santa Cruz recommended settings for a 200lb rider and have only played with the rebound and propedal so far (felt better staying close to SC settings). First impression: It feels firm (in a good way) and rides high in its travel. It smoothed out the trail fine, and was using its travel, even though I did not really feel it moving (my previous bikes FSR suspension felt more active). This is not necessarily a negative, just getting use to the single pivot. I still need to experiment more with the settings and pressures, but I am confident I can get it setup fine. Sorry I can't give a better review at this time.psOption3 said:nice heckler. how does that Fox rear shock feel on the rides?
