    New Suspension on my iDrive 5...

    Bit the bullet, since Performance gave me a great deal on a front & rear shock. So out with the Dart 3/bar 2.1 combo & ordered 09 Revelation426 Dual air/Monarch 4.2. Wondering if anyone had the same combo on there rig?

    Nice. I have the same combination on my idrive, although my RVL is the 08 dual air and i have the 04 idrive, so yours would have half an inch more rear travel.

    Nice! I'm trying to get my GT Force 2 under 30 as well. I think Carbon bars and seatpost might do the trick. It's a tad over 31. My goal is to be around 27 lbs. but that may hinder it's all mountainyness. That's a sweet I-drive 619.

    Good ideas & thanks guys. Next up Monkeylite Carbon SL riser bar, thompson masterpiece stem/seatpost, x0 rear derailleur, truvativ crank (noir or stylo), etc...She should be under 30 by summer.

    Works fine on my end. Try using a different browser. Hey a couple of us are riding LPQ on Sunday around 1ish. Your welcome to come along. It'll be a leisure ride, since there will be a couple of new folks riding. Let me know.
