    On the Sonix bikes, you are looking to get 10mm of sag. We actually have a great step-by-step guide on our website here: http://www.harobikes.com/mtb/tab5.php.

    You will not regret it. The bike feels more like a hardtail to me (in comparison to my Chumba VF2 which is buttery smooth and an SC Superlight which flexed back and forth). I prefer the feeling of the Sonix to the others, that's more a subjective personal thing though.

    I am running the factory equipped stuff though and I have heard great things about changing the rear shock to an RP23.

    Yeah I have an RP23 on my GT and love it. What size bottom bracket does the Sonix have on it 68mm or 73mm? I am trying to figure out if I will need any spacers and if so what side to put them on for my SLX crank

    The BB size is 68mm so you'll 2 spacers on the drive side.
