The EXT Storia is amazing, and I've just ordered a new spring for it and hoping to re-install it soon. Problem was a little bit of weight gain the original springs had me a little undersprung. Also, with how active the suspension is, and how low slung the bike sits, I've found it plays really nicely with just a firm spring rate from both active geometry and suspension performance point of view. Slowly losing weight, but trying to be careful not to burn myself out. It's a tough mental balance at the moment.So just not enough Gnar in Alice to justify running that sexy EXT coil?
I would if I could!!! Fun fact, the forks are worth half of what I paid for the car.You fitting these forks to your XTrail?
The EXT has been fitted to it again, and i just make use of the climb switch on it to help out; it needs all the help it can get going up the hill. That said, the climbs out here are usually pretty "settle into them" kind of deal. Find a gear and then sit and spin with the occasional out of the saddle effort.Good to hear it's been seeing some East-coast action!
How do you find it on steep climbs, does it pedal-bob (I'm guessing slightly, but not enough to be upsetting...), or does having the weight so centralised keep things relatively calm?
