Cheers! Initial rides I've found the forks super plush and stiff.

I run mine with a little less pressure and i've never had them bottom out, and they feel like they have zero flex. Highly under rated fork that just look amazing! You know that they went bust this year i think? Funny enough just as Fox dabble with a similar set up. Only thing missing is a lock out.

Super cool fella. Lets have some pics once finished

Oh locktite on the guard bolts. Tip i was given :wink:

First post on this site and probably a silly way of going about it.

I had my Yeti ARC stolen from me in Oxford a few months ago. I love this particular frame and model unlike the newer ones being produced. Any suggestions about tracking one down as I'd like to start over again?
