Is it a problem? What about the feeling with the bike in technical downhills?

Thanks.

its more racy now and because of the shorter travel it steers very accurate, in downhills its less 'comfy' but i nrode an s-works myself at a testday with sid and f100 i liked the sid more then the fox.
same problem with an alma with f100rl thats like overkill for such a bike a 80mm would be much nicer to ride

Will you save any weight by switching to a extralite seatpost? seems quite heavy at 30,9x360mm - 168 grams. Your bike deserves something light like maybe AX Lightness :-)

Where did you get those ti bolt-on's?? thanks!
