Was just about to purchase a topaz t3. May hold off for Topaz X.
Any idea on time-frame for any details?

Hey guys,
I've just opened up my onyx sc to do a service as I noticed there seemed to be some weird friction about mid way through the travel, felt a little like binding in the bushings or something, but when I took the damper apart the it seemed to be a decent amount of friction in the rebound shaft green end cap. Is this normal or should it be super buttery.
I removed it and regreased the o ring in end cap but it didn't change the feeling at all?

The fork does not feel anywhere near as smooth through the mid stroke as my friends diamond.
Cheers

Hi,

im looking into getting a new Jade X Coil for a 2019 Rallon with old link. Im only around 80kg so i have no big worries about the little bit too linear linkage.
Short question: good shock for the bike Smile ?

It would be a great shock for the bike.

As finalgear said, great choice for your Rallon

What would your advise be for tuning a Jade X for a linear frame (Transition Patrol 2018-20), or do you have any resources to help?

I have my DVO revalved to get a firmer compression tune to suit the frame leverage (Giant Reign '15). Progressive spring is also the way to go since Cane Creek valt progressive springs share the same ID as DVO.

I put mine straight onto my 2019 Patrol with the rebound in the middle setting - feels amazing!
