    I'd change this Manipoo and keep my fingers crossed for the DHX to be he non-clunking one.
    Passion beyond reason!

    I'm not qualified to suggest much on an AS-X, so I'll keep it simple.

    I'd look at one of the new RS forks (Lyric/Totem/etc) and get the DHX PUSH'd. Other than that, its a fine looking ride.

    DHX has a season on it and it is great.

    I have a Marz 66rc2x comming in. I'm a little nervous about running reducer cups.

    I would have to test ride it to give you a firm rating...

    Ditch the Azonic Outlaw QR and get a step down axle for the 12mm hub. The shallow drop outs and a crappy QR are a recipe for disaster. My rear wheel fell off resulting in a separated shoulder, not fun.

    The AtomLab step down axle is the best I've found. Don't waste your time or money on the Azonic step down axle. It chews up the drop out and doesn't secure the wheel as well.

    I'm running a 66RC2X with a FSA reducing headset. It is a huge step up in small bump performance compared to the Sherman with SPV.
