Just got a price drop.

I kind of want one.

Anyone riding one, or is everyone saving up for a message?

I'm looking at building a new <gasp! 29r> trail bike this winter. (120-135mm area)
I want coil on both ends.

Helm is at the top of the list, as is the Ribbon.

Am interested in real people ride reports, as what I find from the review sites is that it is a bit heavily damped but opens up very nicely with some speed / aggression. So, what I want to know is how bad it sucks when you are dealing with slow speed root fests and more tech. No good if it is great at warp speed, but turns into a useless pogo stick as you are trying to get to the warp speed bits....

Part of me thinks about buying a decent 36 chassis, dropping in an Avalanche cart and either an Ava or Push coil conversion.

I have one, and one of my really fast friends sold his 36 and got one.

I like it, I can get it better to my liking then the Lyrik it replaced.

People buy Ceterlock hubs by choice? I thought the only ones that existed were the ones that came on built bikes.
