    lighter riders on Flux 275

    Removed this spacer/air volume reducer from the rear shock. For a 150ish pound rider, I now get full travel out of the rear shock plus a more supple ride. It does not wallow either. Also running the RWC needle bearing which helps on the square edged stuff.

    Hey Mitch, are you using the needle bearings on both ends? On my old Flux I had it only on top, but I'm wondering if there is any advantage using it on both.

    RWC recommends just the top for the DW Turners
