Hi there. Considering a Swoop frame as "Treat Yo-self 2023".
Is anybody using air shock, or is it defo much better a coil shock?
The website says 16 weeks for completion, does this adjust to reality?

For me coil suits my "wheels on the ground" riding style. I've got an air as well but don't use it as the Ohlins is so much better.

You could probably argue that coils suit the personality of Starlings (at least the Murmur) better as they're more about natural techy terrain than flow trails due to the flex. A coil shock helps gives even more grip.

If I was after a poppy / jibby bike or a bike for flow trails I don't think I would have bought a Starling - it would be carbon with air both ends.

After a year and a half of drought followed by a month of historic rainfall that shut down everything within a days drive I finally got my British gal out in her native conditions.

It's already been dirty Smile Went out yesterday and got caught in a thunderstorm. Steel doesn't conduct electricity right? ;-) The ground was very soft so not ideal but first observations were, love the geometry, especially the steep seat tube for pedalling, the Vigi high grip rolls a bit slow (compared to a DHF), it has a nice calm and super solid ride feel. Can't wait to get out on a dry trail.
