fantastic! thanks man.
Also the front fork is a late 2000's x-fusion velvet. It seems to work quite good on jumps, but on x-fusion's website its labelled as an XC fork. Is this something I should consider replacing?

It was definitely an xc fork back in it's day but people often ran em on DJs.

From what I recall, they were not really strong enough for the full abuse of DJ. But people did make due.

Probably a good way to put it.

Trek ticket s, p slope, or canyon stitched 720,
Which one do you guys like the best in terms of geo and how stiff the rear shock is

Personally I have never ridden either but i've read and watched multiple reviews and looked over the specs of each dozens of times, one of the major points against the ticket s in my opinion is its need for a chain tensioner, whereas the stitched 720 does not. It also depends on budget, the ticket s is more expensive, (if i remember correctly) and if you want a used fully built ticket s, (it only comes new as a frame). the two bikes usually have the same components. Stitched 720 in my opinion though. It's really all just personal preferance. Watch and read a few reviews and go from thereSmile .

All 3 of the frames will have stiff rear shocks, and if not can be tuned exactly How you want it. Like dirt07 said the chain tensioner is the biggest bummer for the Ticket - extra weight and complications. P Slope is known to be hard on shocks as the shock is what connects the front and rear triangle, however they ride fantastic. Go for the canyon, best value, great design.

This past weekend I found a gem.
'09 Kona Bass, never been owned, and was on the back of the rack at a shop for 13 years.
So pumped on this mamajama!
