I know it handle great with the 170
I feel like 65.5 is just not enough

Was Long Time Running The G2 With a 160 Fox , Before Going quick to a -1 deg angleset. I noticed That the Front was a Bit lower, so i Setup a CAD Model. Actually the Front was lower By 4 mm. So my decission was confirmed to install the already bought 170 airshaft, as the handling decrease was just barely noticeable. With the 170 plus -1 deg angleset it feels really composet. My biggest fear was Loosing climbing Performance, but it is still acceptable and my legs limit me before the Front Wheels leaves the ground. Tip. To keep the balance install a megneg in the Rear in u run 170 at the Front.

Sounds like a megneg in the rear and 170 up front is the best setup out there for the g2

I’m running zebs @160mm and it has raised my axle to crown. I’m running an extra 10mm spacer under stem as well and finding it under steering a bit and having to lean really far forward to corner . Going to remove the spacer

What you-all thinking about the domain
I mean that's a good idea but the damper really sucks as they say

i guess its like the lyrik/yari : 35 = zeb : domain
different material and chassis but same stanchion thickness
think its a great budget super enduro fork, but i think for most of the people 35mm stanchion options are going to be better (as they are lighter)
also if you decide to upgrade the damper after buying the domain you may as well as just get a zeb since the price difference isnt that big

Does anybody know if this year's 153 is any good? There is a lack of any reviews online.

Should be. looks like about 5mm added to reach, -1.5 head angle & 10mm increased chain stay length. Add to that a reduced fork offset (old 51mm, new 42mm) and a higher stack height.

It all points to slightly less playful but the ability to handle high speeds with a more more stability. Will have to see how the new rear suspension compares to the old. Hope its a little more plush off the top & supportive at the bottom.

350 us can spent much better in my opinion than the link with all the respect to cascade this is over priced

Lol
I haven't but I really thinks that buying a good coil costs the same price will make a bigger different
And will make the bike handle better on ruff terrain

Coil would kinda be going in the opposite direction? (Unless you go progressive spring?)
I feel like the link would be more of a change than the shock.
