Yes, in fact i've enjoyed all the Flex's I've owned still got my 856 and still never fails in putting a smile on my face out on the trails, only things I've changed since the piccy is a Noleen rear shock and front Spring Conversion especially if your going down the Girvin route. Elastomers go hard over time and can prove costly to replace.

Jussa :)
