Great to hear, I've been struggling a bit with the stock X2 as well. I got a couple days on a demo Storia off a Norco Range and it was pretty impressive - looking forward to getting my custom shock.

I have always been a tinker type and took the plunge about 2 months ago and bought this exact system. I have a good number of runs on my local New England trails. From short DH runs on home trails to rowdy runs in North Conway, NH. The biggest...more

I'd just like to remind everyone bikes are still cool, yeti is still a great company, and being critical of something doesn't mean we "hate" each other.

Good Job Nate! I loved this from an Old Guy Industry standpoint - find a voice, make unique, professional content, be friendly and approachable and finally, educate in a cool and respectful way. Kudos sir, and shoutout to the Mayor of Moab!

Jeff, slow people don't need heavy tires, strong wheels, or real brakes. This, in turn, makes their bikes much lighter.
