Thanks to jpeters' Trailfox's demise, My Fourstroke ('07) is now a TrailFox.
When it was in it's former 4" travel setup, I never liked how the shock (Float R w/ low/low tune)responded. Even with the low velocity tune, the shock never reached it's full travel and would buck me when hitting dips. It felt just too firm.
Now in the 5" mode, the rear end stays glued to the trail and I'm using all the travel without bottoming out. Just sitting on the seat I can see the shock move smoothly to sag, whereas before, I felt like there was too much stiction.
If it wasn't for the steep HA, I would ride it more than my Mach5 (the reason I bought the Mach5 was due to wanting more travel and slacker HA). I did 11 miles the other day an I remember how much I would have to fight it from going OTB. But it corners great though.
Gotta post some pics later.
