new Epic Expert-photo.jpg

Just picked it up today. I wanted a romin expert evo saddle like my roadbike so i had a thompson carbon seatpost installed. After a few rides I will put the carbon 3t bars from my Flash on the bike. any tips on shock setup? anything I ned to know besides ride the hell out of it? I also have some eggbeater candy pedals - I am hoping that I prefer these to the egg beaters.
