Good to hear. On paper there's so much to love about the fork. I can't wait to get out and tinker with it.

The biggest thing is getting the negative air chamber correct

I was going to try it equal to the positive air chamber to start. Then increase the negative 5psi more than the positive to see the difference. How much does increasing the negative chamber effect the sag?
you lose a couple mm of travel with a higher psi negative, sucks the fork into itself just a tiny bit.
I run mine no more than a couple psi different, feels pretty juicy on the chattery stuff

That’s exactly the correct process. Increasing the negative chamber does effect the sag considerably. I had to add about 8-9psi to maintain my desired sag setting. Also. Make sure you don’t have the wheel on the ground when you are adjusting the negative chamber.

If you hold the fork by the bottom of the crown, you can prevent that from happening.

Thanks for the tip. That'll save some headaches trying to dial it in.

My Carbine, started with a deluxe, moved to super deluxe and now Float X2.

Excuse the shoddy downtube protector lol


Next up bin the centreline rotors for some ice techs and that should be it. For now....

Lol. No dropper post for me. Quick release works just fine. Every time.

What pot is there to stir? Everyone has their preferences.

Can you run Guide calipers with ice tech rotors?? Is there anything extra you have to do if you can?

Yeah. But most people prefer not to have to stop whenever the gradient changes, or ride with the saddle in a compromised position until it changes to suit. But if you like that, go you.

A dropper would be the best money you've ever spent. I was a doubter at first, but it is as game changing as a derailleur.
