I agree with the idea of normalizing the tire spec for these comparisons.

Good review but zero comparisons to the other bikes in this segment..

Seems like a good all rounder but how does it stack up to HD4, Bronson, Patrol, etc?

I must have missed the actual review.. all I remember is the feature comparison article vs the old Patrol.

Ah.. gotcha. In the pics it looks like it was installed with the set-screw method so I thought you were referring to that.

You are correct that the post doesn't like any tension on the cable when locked.. just a hair of play in the lever does the trick.

RE: 9point8 Fall Line

You used the Digit remote and claim that it is more involved and requires precision to install? Nope.. you did it wrong.

The shift cable simply drops in from the post-side of the connectors and the anchor bottoms out.. the bare wire end clamps at the remote. No set-screws or trimming required at the post end when using the digit. Extremely easy to install and remove.

Read the directions: https://www.9point8.ca/support/9point8%20Digit%20Remote%20Manual%200000-0889-R00.pdf

Agreed that they look more dark-grey, black in the pics.

In real life they are very much dark navy blue.

I've been using a pair of the dark navy color (they aren't black) for 3 months, and yeah, they are pretty damn good.

Not quite the slipper-like comfort of the regular freerider, but a near perfect balance of comfort, protection, durability (so far), and straight up performance.

Have yet to see anyone else wearing them.

Liked a comment on the item How To Get The Most Out Of Your RockShox Suspension 10/28/2015 9:54 AM

This is a good article and a good representation of the value of the Bottomless feature. This should enlighten a lot of folks who feel they can get more from their suspension.

I want to add a pro tip: in slide #17 where the rider is using a socket to...more

Ok, cool. I'm running a bit higher pressure than you (185psi) and 2 clicks out from full slow. Never run a Monarch before so I was a little surprised how much rebound I ended up with during the first couple shakedown rides. Good to know I'm not crazy.

A couple rides in I'm loving my Smuggler as well.

Looking at your excellent article on tuning the monarch for the Smug... am I reading your log-book right that you settled on zero clicks of rebound (full fast) as optimum? Or is that fully closed (slow)?
