    The Nucleon TFR is so so smooth & balanced in the air

    Stuns me how comfy the TFR is in the air........ Very very cool attribute of the GBoxx and having all the weight centered and low on the frame...

    This jump is a cool little number, it is not a huge launch, but you jump over the little brow of the hill, actually is quite a long air time jump, although not hugely high off the ground.....

    Thanks wilhelm, Ozzy & Cris.......

    Quite easy swapping between the Helius FR & Nucleon TFR with the Geo being the same. Only real difference is the weight of the TFR....

    How would you rate the pedaling and the brake effects on the rear suspension if you compare the Helius FR vs. the Nucleon TFR, given that your great CCDB is adjusted properly for both rides?

    Those questions of Wilhelm would interest me too! Also: how do you feel about the bigger Q-factor (distance between crank arms), since you have a comparison to your Helius FR ? Is it an issue ?

    To be honest in this area we have been riding, there is no really long sustained downhill runs where by I can really test the braking effects if that makes sense.... I dont at all notice any difference in suspension feel in landing jumps between the 2 bikes... I am no pro jumper but I am quite smooth in landing jumps..... But like yesterday, did screw up a structure and landed to flat from at least 8 feet I guess and was smooth as....

    As far as suspension differences go pedaling wise outside of the extra weight of the TFR, there feel pretty much the same..... Yesterdays ride was much better, have got used to the weight again.... Like if I rode the 21 lbs Jones before the TFR, it would have F'd me up....

    Nucleon TFR vrs Helius FR
