wont be going mad so i decided against heavier rims. keeping 2.1 rubber on too.

used to blast my last full suspension down black routes on older version of those rims and they are solid, never had one bit of trouble.

I'd also need to be wearing platform boots to ride it :lol:

Nice, but that seatpost needs cut down, a bike like that just does'nt look right with the seat sky high.

Have just replaced the Aftershock on my Sandy for a Fox RX.

The Aftershock had lost all it's damping and the bike was feeling like a rocking horse to ride. :oops:

The RX is a lot better. The damping can be turned right up to get a nice controlled ride. A big improvement over the old shock. 8)
