Im riding a Virtue 2. Its an 08 and a nice bike. Fox Fork (Float R 32mm) and Rear RP2. No Lockout on the Fork but I have the rebound dialed all the way out and the RP2 pro pedal is set to :lock: but it still has suspension in it. Its not like a hard tail.
This by far is the better or faster setup for me. If I run the fork Dial all the way down, the has to much spring. In other words, whn it goes down, it comes back up really hard and fast. With it Dialed all the way out, its not so bad.
The Rear shock, feels good. Nice and spring but its too much with it "on" so I leave it in the locked position s it wont work. The bob is less with those 2 settings.
With that said, its still bobs when I am out of the saddle. No bad but its robbing power. I dont know if my rear is out of air, has blown seals or what. The Fork is a Float R with 32mm Stanchions.
I bought the bike used on Ebay. Its fast, efficient and a really nice bike but its all about lap times where I ride and I feel like its taking alot of time off of me by bobbing. 26 pound bike.
Thanks to all that lend a hand.
