I just got back from my first ride on my new lefty PBR max 140. wow im really loving this shock. it feels so smooth and tracks so well. i am able to stand up on the hills and crank the crap out of my prophet now with out any front end bob because of the lock out. i had a lefty max with a TCP kit before and i had to run her a bit stiff to help offset the lack of a lockout. i also changed my tires to tubeless and im able to climb stuff that i was not able to before. its very nice and the 1.25 lbs i dropped off of my prophet cant hurt.
