Landon, we feel it'd be pretty significant, and have been asking Scott to make the change for several years. For the reasons you mention and others mentioned in the review, there's no doubt in our minds that this bike could drastically improve if Scott were to ditch the TwinLoc system. We'd also suggest the largest volume spacer from FOX to add some much needed progression to the rear end.

Cheers bud. Thanks for reading.

Why does it seem small crashes are some of the worst? One day you'll be casually riding along at a trailhead, on smooth section of singletrack, or a trail you've ridden dozen of times when "WHAM!" You're on the ground without a clue of what just happened.

That fresh Patrol with a Metric Super Deluxe is looking mighty fine! Hoping the new shock tech makes its way into the rest of the line.

This bike for $3,000 is a steal, especially considering you'll likely get good shop service to go along with it. It's an excellent introduction to how much fun full suspension can be. The frame will last you years, as will most of the components. If you're a heavier rider (175lbs+) you may see some early wear on the items mentioned in the review, however.

We appreciate you riding our hubs!

If your drive-side end cap keeps sliding off too easily it could be two things:

It's difficult to tell what type of plugs are included with the Rhythm Plus grips by looking at photos online, so I'll cover the basics. Most bar plugs get pushed into the bar. Sometimes it's necessary to whack it with a mallet.
