    The size of the stanchion on a 27.2 joplin scares me - plus everything I've had from CB hasn't held together to well - in my experience. Think I'll stick with a QR for now.
    "[SIZE="3"][SIZE="2"]but I do not see anything in the world of suspension methods that is superior to the 4 Bar.

    I'm confused, this Joplin looks exactly like the Speedball...is this like Honda's Acura line now??

    So if the maverick 27.2 is also avialable (as hinted), then is someone better off with the speedball or joplin??

    Another sidenote, I've heard many people complaining about that bontrager style seat clamp not keeping tight...this is the main thing that is worrying me about this(these) products.

    It is cool looking though...

    The Joplin is the Speedball. Maverick sold the design to Crank Bros.

    AllMountianPost is also available at 27.2, though I have not tried one.

    I've considered the GD too. Can't get over the lever on the remote. Kind o' like the Joplin/Maverick better.

    Could a little blue locktite solve the seat clamp problem??

    I'm not sure - I'd have to go back and see what the issue was.

    are you using it with grip shift? ...i've been searching for a picture of the setup with the gripshift shim installed...i'm tempted to try it out.
