i know all shocks vary etc - but what sort of coil spring weight for a 75kg rider kitted? with it being a progressive design can you go lighter or just stick around normal?

fwiw ive used a 400 and 425 previously is there any reason to change if i go down the coil route?

i've found the calculator to always be spot on for me across different shocks, bikes, etc.

Cool had not seen this before I’ll have a play with it see what it suggests

How do you like the cascade link?

Not sure yet as I've only ridden it on mellow trails, but definitely more plush off the top so had to compensate with faster rebound.

Hi guys
Still riding a carbon v1, i’m currently waiting for a chainstay from warranty, and after some demo rides on a Ripmo and a Mondraker superfoxy, it made me realize that I really love my Transition despite this being my 2nd warranty issue.
Seriously considering getting a Sentinel v2 ( loam gold, no doubt) but at 5’7 I am afraid of the huge wheelbase and even slacker hta.
I know, I should try one but my lbs doesn’t have any, I did seat on one from a customer, noted the shorter top tube but no chance of riding it ( obviously). Am I overthinking to much or is the v2 a lot of work on slower twisty trails?

It’s not a lot of work! But I’ve also know someone who had both versions and he prefers the first one! I never ridden the V1!?

I love my V1 sentinel. I haven’t ridden the new one though. I do have the cascade link on mine and a travel reducer removed so I’m getting a little over 150mm of travel.

What size V1 are you on?

I went from Med V1 to V2 and it was pretty much seamless for me- you'll love the additional progression and how much more centered you are in the bike
