I live to bike
Happened to see a Pistol in the shop the other day. What is up with the rear shock? It screws right into the swingarm. Granted, it probably helps lateral stiffness, but you can't upgrade the shock very easily. At least on the old Warp line it was possible to put a better shock on, which was helpful since it was single pivot. So now the Pistol, though also single pivot, is unable to be upgraded as far as the rear shock goes. Takes out a lot of the value, if you ask me. Oh, well, doesn't really concern me too much, since I have a Reign, but it is a bummer for those who need to be thrifty on the initial purchase with hope of upgrading later.
