Pretty snazzy! Will any other hub manufacturers be adopting the cassette body/flange positioning?

I'm so stoked that these types of bikes are dominating at the moment!

Around eight years ago, I developed the method for calculating anti-squat for these types of suspension designs...more

Using a sleeved-bearing condenser solves most of those issues.

I had my remote cable slapping around inside, I ran a foam tube over it (as well as a bit of fuzzy velcro behind the chainring) it got really quiet, a few folks who jump on it have said the same.

I have heard at a demo that the air valve cap on the Float X2 was snagging a rider's pads, If you ride the coil (no valve) or if someone has the DPX2 (valve points straight down) then maybe that's what's going on. I've never hit on my DPX2

As an owner
1) Tape helps. I wrapped mine from new with road bike bar tape and black electrical tape and its silent.
2) I have pretty inwardly turned knees when I ride and don't feel like its an issue. I was worried I would be hitting my knees off the shock, but I've yet to...more

Go-Ride in SLC is experimenting with increasing the pressure in the DHX2 reservoir (it can be doubled and stay within FOX spec limits) and initial reports are that it ramps up quite nicely. If this works well it might be a great/simple change.

I can do a REALLY Long Term review, lol. I usually turn bikes pretty quickly but I really like this one. On my third set of tires, finally settled on Minion DHF 2.3 and Minion SS 2.3 rear for the desert. SBRDUDE1 has it nailed in every comment pretty much. It's on the fast end of the 120mm trail bike segment, meaning it can double as an XC machine with a tire switch or be your fun, lighter and stiffer than expected trail bike the rest of the time. Of course your results may vary based on terrain, but I've been happy in the deserts of UT and only wish for more when the trail gets really chunky and fast. I rode it last year for a week at Winterpark and ended up breaking my fork damper and damaging a rim, so I confirmed what I suspected: It's not a Park Slayer, Lol but it's good enough that I actually tried. =)
