I have a few weeks of riding on it now and it is SO much better in the initial and mid stroke over the small square hits (rocks, roots) than the Brain shock.
It barely fits the frame , clearance is TIGHT near the front eyelet, and cannot use a 21 ounce regular water bottle because of the shock reservoir. Small downside for how it has change d the trail worthiness of the shock.
The tune M/L seems right for my bike and riding style. I rarely jump, so I removed the 5 volume spacer bands and I am very pleased with how the bike rides.
PROS: It fits, It works
CONS: It's big
Functional issues: 1.) It has no true lockout and the difference between soft, medium, and firm is much less pronounced then I'd like. 2.) The rebound lever (blue) is not ergonomic -- it is easy to over-shoot your intended setting while riding, it is difficult to tell visually or tactilely which setting your in, and I could swear that the lever sometimes jumps out of position during rough riding (in the direction of the spring loading which is in the 'soft' direction). 3.) No handle remote available.
