I was really pleased with the improvement these shocks made. The bike is much more compliant now in situations where the stock shocks would be noticeably unsettled. I hate to use the word "plush" because it implies "mushy" to me, but I can say that I am no longer puckering or standing up slightly when there's a break in the pavement or a pothole. Most suspension components "break in" a little bit so I am expecting these to soften up a bit more but hopefully not too much.

One drawback of these is that it becomes glaringly obvious how lacking the front fork setup is when using them. Thankfully I already have the RT straight rate .90 kg/mm springs and 7.5WT fork oil here which I am expecting to make a positive improvement over stock in ride comfort and proper spring for my weight. If you have any specific questions please let me know!

Thanks for the update on how these perform.
Are they built to your weight or is it 1 size for all.
