Yep - Still playing with stem height - the head tube is really short on this bike compare to my other 29r (in fact, my steerer here is the exact same height as my other fork on my other bike)... will cut it down once I settle on where the stem will sit permanently.

Not the same "as any bike". Some anti-squat is actually generated by the force vector at the bottom (contact patch) of the wheel, pushing the wheel forward and under the suspension pivot. The higher the pivot, the more pronounced this type of anti-squat, which explains why the high-pivot...more

20 and 24% is where I landed. I generally run less sag than recommended. I feel that suspension performs better for my riding style and location when it is a little stiffer off the top.

The creaking was in the lower pivot, and just needed a quick clean and re-grease.

Thanks for the review Joel.

Regarding sag, is 20% & 24% a typo? Emails I got from Druid said 30-35%. If not a typo, how'd you arrive at trying less sag than the Sag range in the charts?

Can you elaborate on the creaking? Which pivots did you have to work on to remedy this (mine is developing a creak in the main pivot)?

Thanks!

They're less harsh than the carbon SixC bars I came from. I like them and no complaints thus far.

Too funny... totally misunderstood ya! Hahah
