    Phat_Head, you were on the pushed Float RL right? I'm thinking next week I'll send mine out. Curious though, how does this affect your ability to lift "wheelie" your front tire up when you step on it? Also, how would you compare the ride, Pushed versus "locked-out" RL? Smoother, or do you bounce around?

    Thanks!

    it's a float r. the shock has no affect on wheelie. as far as locking out vs. push, the shock still works so it doesn't bounce. when you get out of the saddle to hammer it does move a little since you have all that weight being moved around.i think the best comparison would be when you are out of the saddle stomping with the push'ed shock it moves about as much as it would on a seated climb with a normal shock. make sense?

    Totally makes sense! Thanks. One more question if I may? What sort of "Riding Style" did you specify when ordering? Obviously, I can see the difference between XC and Freeriding. But what about trail riding, aggressive trail riding versus XC?
