Yep I hear ya. I'm really a roadie & a hardball boy at heart so probably running a hard rear end feels better for me.

Definitely not the popular opinion amounts the rear squishy brigade.

Rear brake on the right, then she'll be all good. (only kidding --what's with the brakes ?)

I just rode a bumpy course where now I am reverting back to the bouncy bouncy feeling
mainly because it is too stiff right now

what's wrong with the brakes ?

See my Juicy 7 vs Elixir 5 thread for the brake thing.

Don't get me wrong here, they do the job, well. I've never met an Avid Brake that didn't.
I just don't like the feel. Tossing up a set of Codes from Wiggle now...

Just in case my assumptions on setup aren't valid, MB....

Did the LBS set up the suspension for you? Are you running 25% sag?

Yes and yes.

Did nothing on the bike today. By the time I got nearly finished with other less important but apparently vital stuff it was pouring down :(
