Ramdam na ramdam bro , marami din suspension systems na maganda sa downhill pero di maganda pang XC. Pagdating sa ahon akala mo
flat ang goma mo. Yung DW-LINK ang sarap sa DH , cornering matindi kasi madalas low BB & COG. Pero pag tumingala na yung bike parang
naka-dikit ang brake pads compare to single-pivot and four bar link. Yung maestro may konting advantage sa DW sa ahon. We are talking about
6" minimum travel here. O kaya dapat magpa-payat ako para maka-ahon ako ng maayos! Rolling Eyes

1. hindi ma bato going down - DW link/giant maestro> pedaling efficient, rides parang hardtail pero parang hindi.

2. gnarly. mabato - hands down VPP bottomless ice tea.

Sa akin lang ha, I don't know sa iba but feel ko ang kaibahan ng 4 bar AM ko sa VPP AM ko..plushness sa ahon at pababa plus yung bumps na halos parang nasa sofa ang pakiramdam ko sa VPP..maybe factor din ang proper adjustment sa rear shox vis a vis sa body weight and riding style..I have a SP before, ang layo sa current steed ko..I still keep my 4bar AM though..

Jamis Dakar XLT 3.0...yung limited edition for their 20th anniversary..ang rear shox nito is yung first na labas ng TALAS RLC 90-130mm travel..If I'm not mistaken this shox is the forerunner ng mga DHX air ngayon because of its reservoir system.

yung law hill suspension ng DH9 how does it compare to the new ones ( DW, VPP, Maestro etc. ) type ko kasi yung old skul na susp ng Yeti since makita ko sa video in action gamit ni Jared Graves sa Synopsis I love you kapit na kapit sa rockies. Demit! pag manalo ako sa lotto bili ako ng Rotec Twisted Evil

got a Bullit with a Dhx 5.0 coil and a Stab na naka Vanilla RC. masarap nga padyakan ang SP compared to the Faux Bar / 4 bar ng Stab pero pagdating naman sa mga malalaking lubak at drops mas swabe naman ang Stab. Tried a Reign 0 ng ka tropa ko dito sarap din pang trailing but havent tried it sa medyo malaking lubak and drop, pero okay na okay naman sa ascent padyakan si Maestro.

bongjumper--they say that the old turners are better, tuloy mo lang ser

jep --the lawill DH9 YETI once ko lang nasakyan since my son set it up sa weight nya pakiramdam ko pag-upo ko eh ubos na ang travel! What a Face

pero nung sinubukan ko sya dito lang sa trails namin coz we bled the brakes, small and big bump compliant sya only complain ko lang is the higher than usual

BB nya since it was created nung ka-putukan ng red bull rampage saka hucking, so sa cornering talo sya sa mga newer models...second it is built like a tank so pag-super slow and

technical and race course kailangan mo sya brasuhin kasi mabigat, napansin ko lumaki mga braso ng anak ko eh di naman sya nag-wweights...excellent sya sa moto style racing like the fast and the rockies...pakiramdam

ako si UNCLE KNOBBY nito ha!?! kilala nyo ba yun mga bagets??? cheers

jeps--uy customer pala kita! you went to the right shop kung yan ang kiliti mo! Very Happy Old school ako so mas trip ko ang single pivot like

the new bullit. Pero personal rides ko ngayon giant reign X and Iron horse 7point 08. Mas solid ang feel ng DW link sa Maestro. Pero pakiramdam

ko mas plush yung giant! Mas aggresive ang stance ng 7point saka mas ok ang cockpit. The only cons ko sa DW and maestro ay pumipirma palagi

yung pedals/cranks sa trails lalo na sa ruts specially when you counter-weight one leg in cornering. Tendency bumaba isang crank so pag-compress

ng rear sus ay susmaryosep din! Feeling ko naiwan ko yung stand! (motorcycle) At pag-pumirma siguraduhin mong di ka mawawala sa wisyo kung

di sold yung property! Iyo na yun! cheers Pati mga dahon-dahon at lupa-lupa na sumabit sayo kasama sa package.... rabbit
