    Ok I feel better, I had to get that out of my system.

    Anyone used a chubbie or montie yet?

    get one of the piggy backs, still find it hard to believe that you need such a honker remote for MTB.

    when it's so big that small children cry, it's too big.

    Frame constrainst, the piggy back would hit the frame.

    Although I tried a 5th element on it with out the springs and couldn't see where it hit when mounted with the resi at the bottom...:think:

    I'm so on the fence with this one.

    On Avalanche's Ebay store, they're doing a 10% off sale on all avy shocks. DHS'es are $540, and Monotubes are $360.

    I had to do a little fancy footwork to get the DHS into my disco - in some frames, the brass fitting for the hose touches the frame when you go through a certain amount of travel. Because of this, I have to run my disco in the 9" travel setting, so I get the most distance between the elbow and the tube. SirKnight's frame may have the same problem.
