So i've been MIA for a while due to injury, work, school and some other personal reasons. Been dealing with depression for the past few months and am glad that i'm finally getting my life back together. My girl though had her **** taken cared of though. As i was out of action, she was busy with some diet plan and lost quite a bit of weight. She looks great and feels great... check it out... XD

thanks to Sonny who helped me with the shock hardware complications... XD

Well first ride impression..... Amazing... When you first hop on it, it feels very different. You can feel the damping work on the shock the moment you sit down and bounce up and down. Doesnt feel as plush though, but dang once you hit the trails, you forget that you're riding air... Amazing feeling. Right now i have the reservoir at 60psi and have sag at 35%. Hi/lo speed compression are fully open except for one click on the high speed and the bottom out knob is at 1. Feels amazing, i know bottomed out quite a few times one some of the bigger air but i did not feel it at all. I'm going to try the bottom out at 2 today and see how different it rides, but as of now, i might just leave it at where it is cause it just rides so darn good!!!

So far, very impressed with how it's performing. I dont miss the DHX at all... XD Today will be a full day of shuttling i think. We'll see if the air shock heat up myth is true or not for this shock... will keep you guys updated... XD

No extra gold blingy on her yet? Good to see your not giving it up. I did for a long time and wished I hadn't. It's such a relief to just be able to head out and roll in the dirt. :thumbsup:

Gold bling planned for the future... Gold King or CC 110 headset, gold Atlas FR Cranks, gold front triangle with white Chumba decals, or White front triangle with gold chumba decals... Also maybe the new AL Dorado... Though as of right now i'm happy where it's at...

Yea dude... I'm kinda glad i didnt too. Cant believe i came so close. Cant let things get me down and gotta keep living life. Walter's words, haha.
