7/10 UPDATE. Yeti 130 Progressive Coil

After riding it all summer I can safely say I love the coil. The switch infinity was never designed to feel as ultra plush as say, a Santa Cruz VPP designed linkage. But with this coil it’s damn near close while still retaining the lack of pedal bob that the yeti linkage is known for, so it still pedals like a dream without even having to firm up the shock. Really the only discernible difference I notice is just that the coil does not pop quite like an air shock, but you only notice it if you try to pop a feature and pop at the wrong time. An air shock will still lift you up regardless where as the coil will keep you planted and not want to pop so much. The progressive spring definitely helps with this over a linear spring though. This never came as a problem to me, just something you have to learn which ultimately got me better at timing my jumps. I’ll probably try and air shock again at some point just for shits n giggles but gonna run the coil on everything from now on until they can make an air shock that gives you that planted plush feeling (without having to move all the way up to a heavy float X2, and even then it’s not the same). Hope that helps!

You must be sat over the cassette when pedaling ?

What on earth did you do to that beautiful frame? Poor bike.

About time! I have a Reberb B on my YT and while it gets the job done, it doesn't perform well in super cold weather. And I realized how sticky it is when I put a Wolf Tooth remote on my wife's bike with a KS dropper - smooth as butter and easy release compare to the reverb.

Nice job!

Spreading out the spring only minimally helps, what remedied it for me on the finned pads is finding a roll of sealing putty and putting little tiny bits on both ends of both fins on the caliper. I have been running that for months with no issues of the putty getting too hot and melting or anything like that. Recently I just bought the non finned pads and it also works as the fins are what causes the rattle mostly. Although I can easily say the non finned pads get hot very fast and on a long steep descent, they definitely smell a bit and get too hot. Go figure as SRAM brakes don't need fins and don't get nearly as hot as the non finned shimano pads. So pick your poison, I'll probably go with finned pads and the putty route for now.

It is preference, until a few more years go by and your IT band is screaming or you have seriously bad sciatica. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

still never really quite sure who thin saddles actually work for and why so many brands spec them. Any time I've had someone measured up or fitted for a saddle they're never under 140mm.

Odd, I’ve got a lot of friends who run 2.5 Maxxis and they’re always fine. I’m even running a 2.4 dissector now and it’s fine

Exactly why the OneUp V2 has the shortest total length with and without the actuator. No one can fit a longer drop post in your frame than us.

Our thought as well but people's preferred setups do vary. The post should activate with less than 10mm lever throw when properly adjusted.
