So here's the thing....... I can get a 951 at a reasonable price - but I've never ridden one. Some quick background, I'm 6' 0", I've ridden a Sunday for the last couple of years and quite like it. Its a medium and I would like a longer bike. I've fitted it with a Fox rc4 and run fairly low spring weights and I like my bikes sitting low in their travel. I'm pretty much a hack - even though I've been racing for 15 years and I like a bike that is forgiving. Fast is good too I've been internerding hard and obviously opinions are divided on the 951, particuarly the rising rate leverage ratio on the shock and the way it sits low in its travel. My thoughts are that I can turf the Fox rc2 that comes as standard and fit a vivid as it is a more linear shock, and one I am happy tuning if required. I would imagine a B tune would be a good place to start - but am happy for any advice. I also found that the 951 has very low levels of anti squat and am concerned about how it pedals. Obviously the 951 has been out for a while and is well past the hype stage and hopefully some of you now have some balanced opinions on the bike that you are happy to share. I'm just a sucker for a bargain and dont want to swap to a bike that is not really faster Thanks.
