You're on the money, which is why our conclusion points to a similar type of rider to what you describe.

Without testing to the extreme end of things it's impossible to know where a bike excels and struggles. The variety of terrain in Tucson allowed us to find where the Recluse does...more

You forgot to mention that those Target shoes looked sick, you were just ashamed of the fact that they had 4 stripes and not 3.

Hmmm. Sounds like a good bike, but not enough to take me off of my T275. As usually the content of these reviews has been nothing short of phenomenal. Too bad the bike itself wasn't.

This is the bike I was wondering how you were going to comment on the pedal feedback. I previously saw anti-squat and pedal kickback figures from another site and then when I watched Bike Mag's review of the bike, they said there was low pedal feedback. Interesting how your...more

I would never, ever, ever want to go back to a coil fork. Coil rear sure, especially on a little dick bike that's getting hammered in the rear suspension, but why would you give up the air spring tuning?

Granted I don't ride like Curtis or #teamrobot, but after going from a Lyrik RC2DH air to a Vengeance HLR Coil, and back to a Lyrik RCT3, I'm sold on air as well. Turns out I like the progressiveness of air. I'm sold on coil shocks though, still not quite there on the air side.

How does the Topaz play with the Tracer? Did you have it tuned for it? Are you able to compare it to any other shocks?

I'm personally not a fan of headphones/music while I'm out riding, but these seem like a good option for the gym.

I like the inclusion of the suspension curves. The linear vs. regressive beginning stroke is a nice touch, should make sag set up less critical, at least in terms of leverage. I've found the older VPP bikes to only work in a small sag range.
