Digging it. Pretty much all the details and little judgement calls when designing the geo seem to have paid off. I've swapped in a black saddle and had lined up a Ti riser until the seller realised he'd cut it to 700mm. I'll possibly swap the bar.

Need to get some good pics and see if it's worthy of the Sexiest AM HT thread...

...it definitely is.

None in stock. Doesn’t look like any soon.

I have a pair of Thomson’s I might swap in.

Sorry, what I am trying to say is: can the topaz 3 come without a green lever and rebound tuner? I have a red bike and it will look super funky. I don't want to be a Christmas tree on the trails

Remove them and strip with oven cleaner, polish, you have silver.

I have seen this done on mtbr users’ Ibis Mojo 3 so YES!

So I'm considering the Jade for my 2019 Norco Aurum HSP (650B version) but my main concern is increased mid stroke support over the stock rockshox coil. I'm currently running a 500lb spring with 25% sag but it just seems to blow through the stroke and the bike seems relatively wallowy regardless of the low sag. I've added LSC but it just seems less than ideal.

Can the jade be tuned out of the box to offer the kind of ride I'm looking for or would I have to start playing with the shim stack tuning immediately? I don't want to make the switch if it isn't going to offer me what I'm looking for. The other option I'm looking at is sending my rockshox coil to avalanche to have it custom tuned and updgraded with their HSB system Does anyone know how that would compare?
