That rim is still too narrow....

Great riding and thankfully my hardtail doesn't cue such depressing music. I think some old Slipknot might be a better analogy as to how it feels to ride my hardtail versus my full sus on trails like that.

Look at those beautiful chunky trails!. My mousepad is smeared with tears because my chunky trails are still under 2 feet of snow.

A guide on how to properly manufacture an internet image that will be well received by others? Narcissism is no longer a vice but celebrated. Lame

You will need to remove alot of material from the rocker link that connects to the shock to make room for the air can. The only real way to explain where to remove material to for you to try to insall the shock and see where material needs to be removed. I took alot of material off and have pounded the bike hard with no signs of fatigue. The area that gets removed is not under any stress in any situation anyway. But yes you do grind a substantial amount of material away.

If you use a standard float R or RP23 that doesn't have a piggyback reservoir you don't need to do anything except mount it with the air can toward the front. 8.5x2.5 and try to find a heavier damping rate since the bike has a high leverage ratio.

I'm mostly flapping my gums and not actually complaining about anything. I have ridden full-sus since my first Heckler in 1996 and have never been stranded on a trail with broken suspension-related parts. For that, I am immensely grateful to any company pushing/improving/refining shock tech.

BTW, my DHX air can does warm up a little when pounded and I always saw that semi-double-air-chamber as an insulator of sorts. It would make sense that it would hold more heat than a single-wall can.

First there were Propedal levers, then came CTD, and then there were Propedal levers again. No wonder I just saw a 2012 DHX Air just sell on Ebay for $250, they are the wave of the future!

Fox goes from high volume air-cans to low volume cans and everyone switches to low-volume cans and raves about the benefits...then Rock Shox starts the Debonair thing and high volume is en vogue yet again.

Now this is like a two-year cycle of regurgitated tech; I am sure there is a mental disorder for this sort of behavior.

I don't understand the negative props for you. Everyone seems drunk on the koolaid...I have multiple bikes to choose from and the 26" 32 pound, 180mm travel bike gets the most use because it is MORE FUN. I'm with you, having ridden and raced since 1994 the fun of short-travel or hardtail being more than a novelty died off for me in 96 when I bought my first Heckler.

This build absolutely rips! I love the Hayes company parts throughout...I will assume you have contacts to get that fork in red.
