    I've had my shock flipped over for two years with zero issues. I'm on the smallest (medium) frame and my bottle would always flip the PP lever when pulling it from the cage. I called SC and they said no problem. Two years and not one accidentally flipped lever!

    Excellent! Thanks. I'm on a medium too and ended up putting in a side entry cage due to the lever conflict.

    Why do you have the shock in opposite direction? Better access to the switch when riding with a bottle? Any other benefits?
    After I saw this I call SC directly today. No Problem running it that way, so I flipped mine.

    Nah - runs perfectly. The only downside is that people keep asking you why you're running your rear shock back to front

    Very nice - like the color. Just to see if anyone is paying attention, this one is feeling like an ugly step-child since the Tallboy Carbon has arrived...

    I built my new wheels up, Hadley hubs and Import Carbon Rims. Bike looks much better than with Easton wheels. Just waiting for my other new RARA tire. Wheels worked awesome on trail today. No action pics was too busy carving.

    How do you like the Bronsons on the WTB rims? I've got an extra 2.1 Bronson laying around. Might keep the 2.1 Crossmark on the rear and stick the Bronson up front. I've had good luck w Crossmarks in the rear and WTBs up front.

    I really like the WTB Bronsons. I have the 2.2 Bronson upfront on the i19 wheels. I found that it seems to grip better than the Maxxis Ardent tires. I rode the LTc with the 2.2 Ardents and they seemed to be all over the place, they do roll fast though. Just for kicks I want to give the Spec purgatory a try to compare to the bronsons. I think you'll love the bronsons.
