Dropped the crappy stance forks along with most of the 5th element shocks.


Tons of new Marzocchi stuff stock on just about every bike! Bout time they put a Super T on the Yakuza instead of that dreaded Kingpin.

Fox DHX 5 shocks on most of the mid to high end bikes. Must be a good improvement over the 5th!

Everything has been done exactly like I wished they did last year!

Too bad I just spent a grip of money on building my bike up. That 7 point 9 and 7 point 7 look freakin dope!

I would still consider the DHX an upgrade even though the 5th is nice.

It fits a suspension design like the DWLink really well. DW link likes smooth active shocks, and that's exactly what the DHX is!

I'm also willing to bet the DHX is more reliable and has better customer support.

Two of my friends have had nothing but issues with their 5ths, customer support was freakin slow to boot!

It's really hit and miss with the 5th.

Adjustability is over rated

The Fifths they use on the lower end ones lack adjustability. I think they used the CVT-3.
On a shock that is revalved for the bike, adjustability is not as necessary. I've run both the stock CVT2 and a borrowed CVT5, and I can't say that I missed the adjustments when going back to the CVT2. Or maybe it's just the 7 point suspension. :D

I would like to try a Roco and dhx, tho.
