Yeah, feel the same myself. Sold my East Peak a year or so ago after finally figuring out I enjoy riding my hardtail more. I don't regret it for a minute, but with the power of hindsight I could've saved a pile of cash not buying the full susser in the first place, hey-ho one lives and learns!!

Can you adjust the shock position? I changed my Uzzi SL setup quite a bit and now have it dialed in perfecto..

Have shock at steepest position to push the angles steep [as close to 72/74 as I can get!] then shoved the seat back on the rails, straight 'post and gave myself a 120 stem.

If I have the Rebas at 115 it's slightly laid back, otherwise at 90 for XC hack..

Kingroon,
Bonty stickers made to order in any colour you like here. I'm sure if you ask nicely they'll post them or if you like I can pick them up for you to check them out ( just around the corner from me and they did my Bonty ).
