Very soft! It's a 57mm stroke shock yielding 160mm of travel--a pretty high leverage ratio at 2.8:1. I ordered the stock shock from DVO to test how plush it would ride. At the moment, I'm running a lot of compression damping, but I haven't yet dialed in my base tunes on a variety of terrain. Once I have those base tunes set, I'll talk to those guys about customizing the tune. It rides great descending, but conversely pedals softly

I don't have any memories myself, but I have memories of people sharing memories--especially Edward 40 hands. Thanks Vital! Great feature! Awesome stuff!

Your best bet this time of year is to ride Eagle Mountain. Start with the Flintstone trail, and start looking around from there.

Added reply in a thread offset shock bushings for slacker head angle 3/16/2011 9:07 PM

The bushings we tested were proto (as in prototype: rough, scragly, unfinished), but those things look prodo (as in production: clean). Like VW, I'm surprised no one has gone prodo with these earlier, as they really made a nice difference on a number ... more »

This is EXACTLY how marketing should work. Tell a story, throw in some "history," and entertain the hell out of some sh*t. Well done! By the way (B.T.W.) I love the my Five.Ten's--not literally, that would be gross.

Great write-up. Steve is fast. I wonder if you would still have to run higher air pressure if you were running the medium- or firm-tuned compression circuit on the vivid air. Only one way to find out: "experiment, one click at a time." SPAM: We at Go-Ride also demo these shocks. Give us a call.

That is a really tricky bolt to remove, since cutting a slot in the head of the bolt requires almost surgical precision with the dremel. To cut said slot, you are going to need a well-worn (smaller diameter) cutting wheel, so it fits into that tiny space ... more »
