    I have about 75 miles on the bike and no problems with the DYAD shock. My Jekyll Ultimate comes in around 26.5lbs with the only additions/changes to stock configuration being Formula R1 brakes w/carbon levers and Twenty6 Ti platform pedals.

    Any DYAD Problems Update?

    Very much like the new Jekyll but worried that the DYAD is a little too complicated for its own good. How have they worked thus far? Does the 90 mm setting really help with climbing?

    Also any actual weights of bike--can it really get down to 25 lbs?

    No problems for me since January. I have around 50 hours of ride time on the bike now and you just need to make sure to keep that cable adjusted that switches modes. It will stretch. 90mm does make a big difference on steep climbs and long climbs. In the flats 150mm is just fine so if you are a flatlander then this bike does not provide benefit.

    I could see 25lbs depending on your build. I got the carbon 1 and am sitting just over 27, but I have Reverb on the bike which adds a pound. Without the Reverb and some other tweaks I think 25 is very possible.
    Live to ride!
