    Jedi 'clunk' on decent?

    I just built up my new Jedi and took it on a spin at the local jump park...the only weird thing I noticed was when I come down this steep shoot and the bike levels out at the bottom of the shoot, there would be a 'clunk'...I can't tell if this is the rear wheel suspension or something else. All the jumps to transitions didn't make this sounds. I'm 150lbs on a 350lb spring and everything else felt great. Any experience from owners?

    Other than that this thing is buttery smooth, and so stable it feels like the ground doesn't even have bumps!

    Monkies - Give us a call - your bike should not clunk on bottom out. My guess is your spring is not seated properly on it's retainer.
