    '07 I-drive 5 Climbing Ability?

    Hi All,

    I am highly considering the '08 Force and I'd like to hear how a recent 5" travel version of the i-drive does when climbing.... or if anyone already has a Force and has done some decent climbing, that kind of feedback would be even better. I am coming from a HT so I'd like to maintain as much efficiency as possible.

    Any issues with pedal bob (in or out of the saddle)? Brake jacking?

    I'm 6', 180lbs if it makes any difference.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure how the new force climbs but I can say that the i-drive 5 3.0 climbs like a champ.
    I just recently purchased it a month ago. I was ridding a hard tail before and I personally like the fully better. The force suspension wise is about the same in travel length so I would imagine it climbs just as well. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the reply, I went ahead and bit the bullet, bought the Force, just waiting for dryer conditions so I don't destroy the trail.
