    How does it ride? I've considered a yess for my FS but I think I'm just gonna sell the frame instead to buy another HT.

    The bike rode awesome. The epic works great because you can stiffen the front and rear shocks to ride like a rigid bike until a bump comes along. After riding this, I can't imagine riding a hardtail.

    The YESS tensioner worked great. No problems so far. It is a little loud though, but nothing different from a downhill tensioner.

    If your frame and fork have the abiltiy to lock out, then I say go for it.

    integer overflow on a 32bit variable can cause it to wrap around from 0 to the highest possible value for that variable size

    2^32 = 4,294,967,296. Subtract 1 to find the max value because the smallest value is 0 and you get 4,294,967,295

    Now you know
