No shit Tonto :rolleyes: just you seem to come across as having little clue about how this stuff works. And a condescending prat to boot.
Let's turn that frown upside down! Wake Jake has made an effort to share a thread about his awesome vessel and some people aren't agreeing with other people's understanding on how stuff works.

Well this escalated quickly I had to get the popcorn out haha. I measured my sag the other night and had 15mm-16mm sag. This made me stick with the 400lb. I do have a 450lb lying around which I should have probably tried before ordering the MRP. In the meantime while the MRP is in transit I will fit the 450lb and see. I do ride in a more forward position.
Zaf the police uniform got me over the line for buying the Foxy. Didn't really have anything else really on the shortlist tbh besides a Pole Machine. My brother just ordered a Stamina actually. I love the Dune XR which I still have. I just wanted a little more of an all rounder and both bikes being the same wheelsize. The sizing and spec for the price I paid is very reasonable to other boutique brands. I also like to have something a bit different.

MRP spring arrived today. Only took 4 days from Murica. I have hit the bottom out bumper a number of times. The sag is correct so hopefully this can balance out things with adding some progression at the end of the stroke.

No real changes except a higher rise Enve M7 bar and some new Michelin tyres. Couple of snaps from Derby and Maydena doing 6x days straight of riding. Maydena this time around with alot more double black and single black technical trails was insanely good. Just not anything like it anywhere else. Managed to get the big wheels to fly

Very nice bike.

I almost went a foxy 29 over my Mega but the cost I couldn't justify at the time.
Fair call the Commencals are super value that's hard to pass up. You can get surprisingly good prices on Mondrakers in aus if you ask. Better pricing than Santa Cruz and the like.

Nukeproof Mega sorry I got frame only and it was over 1k more for a foxy 29 xr (alloy) which I couldn't justify.
I deal with offthebrakes they are legends.
