I shot a quick video of the type of riding I normally use my Chilcotin for.
It's not huge hucking or blowing berms just 1000ft up then down. I yearn for the killer berms & manicured jump trails of Whistler but that's only once a year for me.
I'll post some of my impressions of the Chilcotin but most have already been expressed.
The perceived difference between the "steep" shock position & "slack" is climbing attitude & the chassis balance off the lip of jumps.
By a few clicks here & there is all it takes to optimize the vehicle for climbing, descending & jumping. But I like to ride instead of fiddle so I feel I've found a good compromise for me; in suspension settings for all the conditions I will ride in.
I can climb faster on my 29er but I can clean more techy climbs on the chilcotin provided the motor doesnt wimp out! I enjoy that.*
Thank you Noel for a great ride!
