yeah – my experience is excellent too on my Nicolai Helius AM back to back with a CCDB – High praise indded imo
My experiance is also very good. I use mine on a GT Idrive5 and find the floodgate good for the road/smooth sections and just tend to leave it open for the rest of the time. I have the high volume air can (only becasue it was cheaper) and have yet to feel it bottom out even though the o ring has been off the end.
They still lack rebound control once you put enough air in for anyone over about 10stone. RS copied Fox really well with this shock, including the shortcomings Fox fixed in the RP23 a while back! The ’10 version rebound is promised to be better, we’ll see.
The rebound on mine is fine even though i have it at 250psi ish
I had one on a 2009 Giant Reign worked fantastic super plush and still great for climbing
