I was shit posting to be fair and I cant say I have spent much time on RS stuff to give a fair comparison.

The shock from fox that I have really gotten along with is the Float X2. I find the DPX2 underwhelming and the same as the regular float.

I do like RS forks and have had a Pike and Lyrik. Spent some time on a Grip 2 36 and it felt really good.

agreed, Fox forks are kind of meh but that float X2 is a real work of art.

also I'm loving that yellow Yeti frame.

Right, but we were talking about the rims on the Banshee.

Move started squeaking and sloshing after a couple months. Warranty covered it, but I wish I would have stuck with the DHX2. This was a few years ago though.

Exactly.

Flashy ≠ Sexy

Should have focused on specs before a custom decals, in my opinion.

They Tyee has to be my favorite AM/Enduro frame on the market. Too bad they're only available in Europe.

Love the spec too. That furmula fork is something else. SDC is also a terrific shock too. Definitely a sexy bike.

Indeed it is. For myself I took AL version because I wanted to invest more in equipment. CC version looks better though...

Can anyone tell me what other high pivot Enduro bikes are on the market or coming to market? I'm really Keen to build one up. This Kavenz is pretty mint, but if the price is crazy I might have to look for something cheaper, wait to find out.

replace green bits on the shock with blue and black chain and it would be super sick
