Out with the old, in with the new. Should be able to get out tomorrow to try it out. It sits 1.5" lower now so I can actually have the balls of both feet on the ground when sitting on it.

I couldn't stand the air shock on my X-challenge, that should make it a much better package! thumbsup

I rode it for about 150 miles on Sunday with a variety of fire roads, two track, baby-head rocks, and highway. I am really liking the new setup....and I'm not just saying that because I paid close to $1k for the shock. The air shock was a PITA and the extra 3 inches of height when the bike was at rest was crazy. Now I just need to lower the sidestand by about an inch and it'll be set.

the stock airshock on the x challenge was the worst POS suspension ever.
