    There are speed bumps in that small lane where you tried it!

    Good choice!

    That's sexy! Love the black links. Just got my black link from Chris (soon to replace the red top link).

    Question about the shock? Which compression/rebound tune (it's on the outside label around the shock)?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Should be fine. I got a RP23 off of ebay with a light compression tune. Rode it a couple time. Not to bad, actually got full travel out of it. But I couldn't feel any difference with the pro-pedal on. So it's off at PUSH right now

    Sweet bike man I love my One and my Jedi of course. You picked the right bike that is for sure, and again what a nice build as well.

    Gotta love the Canfields, they are just pure awesomeness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Got a couple rides on the Pushed RP23. It is sweet! Just slightly better than my Roco TST R Air, my favorite shock (others tried were the Fox DHX, Roco WC Air, Roco TST-R coil). The pro-pedal lever finally works! Kinda stiffens up the shock which I like to do for climbing.

    8.5x2.5 shock. It does lower the bottom bracket some. With the 8.75x2.75 I was either missing or slightly grazing my pedal on rocks. Now I am making some solid contact just like my previous bikes. (Note: I live in rock garden central, my main ride is Palmer Park here in Colorado Springs which is just one big rock garden ). The center of the bottom bracket is 12 7/8" with the a Fox at 100mm and 13 1/2" with at 160mm (Maxxis Advantage 2.4 on Flow rim/Spec Captain 2.0 on a 819).
