Thanks for the info, hadn't found a good site. Price is a tad high, would love to find something used!
Bought mine from Lama. Pretty decent shipping speed considering I am in California. Took 7 days.

Wow that's actually not bad at all
yeah when i bought my soda complete it was at my door 2 days later! They have really good customer service so the little extra you pay is worth it. Plus its a canadian company and the dudes that owns it rides bikes everyday so !

Would you say it's easy to justify the 2700$ price tag on the new soda slope on their site? Likin the looks of it.

It's a fine bike, but not worth $2700 in my personal opinion. Avid brakes, decent components and overall weighs 30.4 lbs which is good, but for $2700 I feel you could get it lighter/better components. I just bought my 2013 frame barely used for $850 and am building it up soon.

Totally, I see what your saying. The decision for me has been between a soda and a pslope but I'm now leaning towards a soda due to more travel and freeride capabilities. That's not bad at all!

just wanted to know if anyone had experience with it, i'll try to get my soda lighter than your ticket :$

Shouldn't be hard. I got 2 brakes, a dropper and a turncoat. 27 and some change last time I checked. Fun tho.

I had a 36 float on my dreamliner and it worked well. It's indestructible on an SS bike. I now run a 32 though because of weight.

Ok that's not good cause the 36 i was looking at is sold and the ret are not the right steerer or price for me... I am also really light am like the adjustability of the pike so think i will go for that
Thx for your views i may change to 36 next time i change the forks but i can't afford it Frown
