If you look at my pics at the top, you will see the shock on the wrong way round. This was a mistake that was apparently due to the fact that the shocks come seperate to the frames and therefore the shop has to fit it them to each frame. In my case, the mechanic probably had his eyes closed or it was getting late on a Friday evening. Fortunately Rob at Esher Freeborn was very helpful and put on a new shock the correct way round.
With the DHX: If the piggy-back chamber is towards the rear, you can't access the air valve without taking the shock off the frame.
No real preformance difference really. Some people will argue sprung mass... but its totally negligable in this case. The real reason that I tell people to mount the shocks with the resevoir towards the front of the bike is due to small frames having shock clearance issues with the top tube if mounted the other way round... see bobrockets bike and you'll see what I mean.
So, I've given my Rune a face lift. Still have to change the rims, gold alex supra d's coming next.
Totem works well. Chances are if you have a Lyrik or 36 and a normal non-flush headset, and with more that a mm or two of spacers, you probably have a taller front end than I do with this totem. I am planning on lower rise bars too, but I went with these Syncros bars in the mean time because they are much wider, and even lighter than my race face AM bars.
I've gained some weight, but I'm now comfortable to actually get rid of my DH bike completely.
