Default So hard to wait for the things you order

I have my new RP23 Fox shock due to arrive Wednesday and the mounting hardware coming from Fox on Thursday. Looking forward to putting in a few rides to compare to the Specialized AFR shock with the brain. If I end up liking the brain better, I should be able to get my money back out of the RP23. I know a few folks with Stumpys that my want a shock upgrade. Oh yeah, and the new shock should increase my travel from 4.7" to 5.3 efficient inches of travel. May finally be able to use the 140 mm setting on my TALAS fork.

Blasphemy!! Do you ever have everything you need for your bike? No! If your bike is functioning perfectly, your just not looking hard enough. You need to further inspect your ride (aka - make something up to justify a new purchase) and I'm sure you'll find something. Either that or the bicycle marketing gods will come up with the latest & greatest fad for you to blow your money on.
