 Yeah well here's the thing; I'm riding a (brand new condition) 2019 XL/S5 SJ LT. I was set on a new EVO but due to availability, and the SJ long travel was my first choice anyway, I thought this was slack a nd long enough. Glad I ended up w/this cause it's still an FSR frame.

So the chip's been in low for all these rides early this season. Thought I'd avoid some pedal strikes and it might help w/some rocky nasty climbs if I went into high. Really felt 'weird' lol on my first test ride. It's amazing how such a little difference in that chip can be that noticeable.

It's not real bad or too "off", just wasn't used to that feel, I felt more "forward" as if the ST angle got steep if that makes sense. I AM going to flip it on high again maybe next week when we go back to those woods and try it to give it a fair full run like that.
I know it'll feel great climbing like that, and I want to see how that feels hopping over the rocks and roots and stuff on the downhill spots, and maybe it'll feel good riding over all those logs and branches.

See this is one thing cool about the EVO w/the adaptable HT angle. I'm still convinced I got the correct bike though.

 I thought too I might add some sag if I go HI-flip, only running about 25% on DPX2, that could make a dif?
