    I too am running the AMg. Had it on my endo and mangled it after one ride. MRP was surprised. Trying it again and hoping for better results, if it goes to pasture quickly again I'll go with the CF back plate instead of Alloy/Alu.

    Cool looking build there.
    Waiting on my L Day Glo Green. Same hoops and sus for me with X01. Only managed to try a large Chillie and Endo. Hope my Warden fits as well. I'm 6'2.5" but thought XL might be too big?

    What's your experience with the steering damper? I must be out of the loop because I've never even heard of one being used on mountain bikes.

    I don't currently run one on any of my bikes. This is my wife's bike and my wife has them on all of her bikes.. However, we also have a mountain bike tandem that we use one on.

    My wife is on the small side, and she use to complain that at times she felt like she was having a hard time keeping the front of the bike going where she wanted it. Mostly in technical chunky sections. So for her, it helps keep the front of the bike pointed where she wants it. From riding the tandem, where we also have one installed, I can tell you it makes quite a noticeable difference. You notice is most on loose surfaces, like baby heads, or shale. You also notice it on chunky technical downhills as well as steep technical uphills. It keeps the front end pointed where you want. It almost feels like cheating at times. I don't think I would ride something like this on the tandem without it:



    But as you notice I said I don't run one on my single bike. I just don't feel like I need it. It would help me too, but I dont think to the same degree it helps my wife. On a DH bike, or if I was a smaller rider, then sure.
