    I would guess that there is very little bob because BD usually specs very high spring rates on those KS shocks. Unfortunately that also means that the suspension doesn't really do much of anything.

    Yeah, I looked at the pic gallery on their website and saw the 1000 lb. spring on there. That might work out good for me since I weigh 250lbs.The big question is can the frame hold somebody that heavy.If it can,it would fit into my plans OK.I'm going to strip the parts off of it & put them on a build for my wife.(Either an ACCESS XCL 9r frame or a Outcast 29). The ACCESS is IMO a really nice budget HT frame,especially for the price I got it in 2010.($95 free shipped to store)
    Now that was a deal and a half. I made out like a bandit on that one.Got one for me & my wife.If I throw the Speed Disc wheelset from the 29ONE on that frame,she will have a pretty descent bike.I just want the 29ONE frame.Pedal bob & Clysdale capable structural strength are my main issues.I didn't really want a super cheap squishy right now, but I did need the wheelset and some other parts, so this might work.
    Maybe.
