    2016 Glory / Vivid shock question

    There is a noticeable "top out" on the rear shock upon full, rapid rebound. You can feel it through the bike.

    Are others having the same thing?

    If this is normal, no big deal.

    I have the same problem, and a guy i met in Hafjell Bikepark had the same topout.
    Maybe it could be wrong nitrogen pressure?

    I have not noticed this on the 2015 Glory's we have sold. The Vivid R2C has two rebound adjusters and they need to be set up in synce to work properly. Check the set up recommendations on Rockshox website.
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it :thumbsup:

    are you guys topping out on the vivid coil r2c or the vivid air r2c? any thoughts on whether air or coil is better for the glory 0 frame?

    Coil, and aside from a minor annoyance, it is a non-issue.
