    Vivid Air and EG

    Well finally got a new shock for my EG and love it. Snagged a new '13 Vivid Air R2C and slapped it on my rig and it transformed the bike for me. I got the low tune and the bike eats up everything so much that it is making me want an Avalanche Cartridge for my Lyrik because it is making it look bad. Haven't taken it of any huge drops yet but the ones I did seemed so smooth. I ride everything aside from DH on this bike and have no complaints yet. Climbing on it is better than I thought and climbing is not my thing . I gobbles up rocks at high speed and feels bottomless. I am bout 240 and am running 30% sag with the RS recommended starting settings. I am not a shock fiddler so probably stay on those settings. I plan on taking it to N* this season to see how she does on the bigger stuff but I imagine that it will be fun.

    Hellz Yeah!
    I have a vivid air on my EG as well. Am really happy with it.
    Glad to hear you like your also.

    Curious to know what sorts of updates they did for '13 if you know.

    I don't think there is much if any differences between the '12 and '13 aside from decals. If I am not mistaken they are a bit more refined than the original '11 which I think had some seal issues.
