Has anyone matched their valves to the mint color on the roval stickers?

How close is the Muc Off light green? It's not that grass-green like some green valves are.

I wanted purple for my Chameleon and was a little ticked that Stan's doesn't have a purple, but I have the Muc-Off valves in there and they're working fine with the bushing for the offset rims.

Is anyone riding a 2020 27.5 s3?? 490 reach??? How tall are you and how does that long reach ride on mellow trails??
me I'm 5 10 and I don't ride mellow trails but as long as you are going fast or are in the air it's excellent. On slow tight corners it takes some getting used to but it's never a problem. I've got a 35mm stem which is essential. Hope this helps

anyone running a coil shock on their stumpy? have a 27.5 but thinking about trading my DJ for a 29er version and slapping a coil on it to thrash at the bike park. I'd have both 27.5 air for trail, 29er coil for park, is there a big difference in feel between the coil and air? thx!

Hve a look back toward the start of this thread as there is a mountain of info on the pros & cons of running coil shocks on these bikes. This will give you a good understanding to make an informed decision.

In general the theme you will find:

Air shocks work well as the rear suspension is quite linear by design. Pairing this with a progressive air shock gives good bottom out control.

Pairing it with a coil gives good traction and smooths the trail out but provides less than ideal bottom out support. There are ways to help this. Also there are durability issues with running coil shocks with small shaft diameters on stumpjumper frames due to the shock mount arrangement. This problem is not specific to a coil as an air will experience the same issue but due to larger shaft diameters, are better suited to handle it.

I have 29 pro with a DHX2 coil. Have replaced one shaft due to wear and run a progressive spring. Does everything I want it too. Not perfect but no bike ever will be IMO.

Currently testing out a Bomber CR on an alloy 27.5, 600# linear spring (I'm 190 lbs kitted) with cascade link. Only one day on it in the bike park so far ...will report back when I get it dialed in a bit more and more time on it. First impression is it feels great on jumps and drops, holds traction very well, but when I plow through jank and starting moving the bike under me it really fights me on where I want the bike to go. Going to need to dial it in a bit more before I can know it's normal behavior and not setup though.

Following up on this last post - rear end was sketchy due to rear hub needing a rebuild (done) and the flip chip being in low. I was running it in low because I had some clearance concerns running it in high with a 55mm stroke and CC link. The yoke only has about 1mm clearance from the seat tube in top out. But when it's in low the suspension kinematics just seem totally wacked, I couldn't get it to feel right on either end of the bike. In high the coil feels fantastic. I rounded off the upper interior lip of the yoke to give it some more breathing room. I had some bike park and some pedal time on it - it's better in every aspect than the dpx2. Even easier, IMHO, to pedal than with the dpx2 which has a climb switch and is about 1.5lbs lighter. I am aware of all of the damper shaft / seal head issues with coils on this bike but didn't see any feedback on the Bomber CR in particular, and since it has such a thick damper shaft I thought I'd give er a go. If it's going to fail it shouldn't take me very long since I ride so much park so I'll report back if it does. But so far I REALLY hope it doesn't because it performs so much better than the dpx2 did.
