My wee Fat... just fitted the Rock Shox, (used to have the RC-30s that are currently on my P7 - see other thread!) so I figured I'd finally take a couple of pics! If I was feeling better I'd have taken a ride somewhere, but I'm not, so sorry for the poor location! :)

does that bike fit you well? it looks a bit big, not enough seatpost showing. if the bike flows under you then it's right.

i know a serious fat aficcionado who swears by Bucks over Yos. the ride is dfferent since Bucks tubes are slimmer producing a softer more mellow ride.
i ride a wicked which is even more mellow.

It certainly does ride nicely... I've not got a Yo though, so I can't really compare!

I love it too! :) I'm quite happy with the contrast though at the moment (as well as always having wanted some yellow SLs!) - here's how it was a while ago with some purple RC-30s (& a couple of different bits);
