I don’t suppose you remember if his era was “sucked” down when it has no air in. Im wondering if this is why mine is feeling very soft, it’s like it’s been built bottomed out and when it’s inflated it is still being sucked down by the negative air pressure in the lowers

I don’t think so. He was feeling extra firmness, so it sounds like the opposite problem. Any luck getting it sorted out?

My new whip. Did a frame swap with my Ripmo. Only been out for a few quick rides, but so far I’m loving the extra progression and the the 63.5 ha. Feels brilliant on turns, chunk and everything else. Treated myself to the one up bar - finish is beautiful, nice rise and they feel great

Love this! Also running 2021 fox and oneup bars. So far I’m loving it all. How about you? That thing looks like a trail muncher for sure. Woo wooo

Oh yeah, that is lovely!

I don’t get all the negative press about slack head angles. Since getting my g1 I haven’t noticed any drawbacks with the head angle apart from going sub walking pace

You get used to bigger reach and slacker head angles really quick.

Coming from a quick handling and super agile bike it can feel like a barge for the first couples rides, particularly if the bike is heavier than your old one too, which is often the way now.

You get used to it super fast though - and once you're used to it there's no going back really. Way more capable.

I had the same experience. Went from a 2017 5010 to a 2021 Marin Alpine Trail . First ride I was thinking what have I done - this thing is a pig. Few rides later... this pig gets LOOSE Drool

So, I should say that the Ripmo is an unbelievably good bike. It just wants to go fast. It pedals for days! However, I had to fill the X2 on it with spacers and had way higher pressure than I wanted in the can. It would just blow through its travel a little too easily for me. The Transition has a much firmer platform, Im running one spacer and 20psi less and im not bottoming out (not sure how much difference the 21 shock makes? Was on a 19 x2 on the ripmo). Both super fast bikes, but at the moment im loving the extra progression and slacker head angle. Got a pr on a trail that I ride regularly today and ive only ridden it twice on my sentinel and it really didnt feel like a good run. So far im really pleased with my choice.

DVO suspension looks so good. I really wish fork manufacturers would get more serious about offering different colour options. If I can order stems, hubs, grips, and seats in a million colours, why not forks?

Dvo suspension rides really nice. The tuning is different, but works really well when dialed in. Love mine.

Just recently picked up a diamond for my sons hardtail, I've gotten a couple rides in on it and it feels really good right out of the box.

Went for the fox coil with springdex for the Prime. Much excitement for park season
