    any one have a RS pearl

    there are 3 reviews in the reviews section and they are good just looking for more input. the adjustable platform seems like it would be very nice to easily dial in each trail before or during a ride.

    And an added note to the story, he has since gone back from the Pearl to the DHX-Air. I'm quite interested in the RS rear shocks since their new forks are so good, but I get the impression they just aren't there yet.

    I've put a Rockshox Pearl 3.1 on my Cannondale Prophet,it's loads better than the Manitou Radium R that was on it originally,really easy to set up,just set your sag at 30%,set rebound how you like it,ride along with the floodgate/platform adjustment fully off and the shock bobs,then just turn the flood adjuster one click at a time until the shock stops bobbing,easy,no tools needed,i use about 8 clicks from fully out for road work,2 clicks for off road/all mountain.It's a bigger shock than the rest of the Rockshox shocks because it's an all mountain shock.Overall i'm well pleased with it.For anyone interested,it weighs 275 grams,i know because i weighed it.Also if you open it up for a basic clean out/relube DON'T use Rockshox grease,i did and the shock lost air,i relubed it with Foxfloat fluid and it now holds air,even when i've been off roading all day it don't loose a single pound of pressure.
