Yeah, im gonna be picking some tubeless muddy marys soon, dropping 200g per tyre, and whatever I save on tubes. And I think id come to that conclusion myself tbh, I mean, a need a 700lb spring, that thing weighs a ton on its own, easily half a lb more than a 450. Ive been thinking air lyrics aswell, 170mm, I can reduce rear travel from 7/8 inch to 6.4/7.3 with a shorter shock, been thinking it would make it more enduro aswell as awesome fun on jumpier tracks

Hot damn, a 700 lb spring! Either your at least 250 lbs (or a bunch of stone) then that bike has a poorly designed suspension curve.

Itd just be nicer to get up a few more hills haha.

And m4s, superstar Kevlar pads, 8inch front 7inch rear rotors. Ive got a lot of mechanical traction, takes a lot to lock wheels up
