those springs look like a plush ride, it would make me think the valving must be pretty progressive, then you see those big azz reservoirs and your like dohh. I can't wait for a ride report, going to really piss me off when I have to wait an extra month to save up for these over the Bandits. You need to road trip up to IL to Dupupp's ride area so I can head up and ride with both of you and then decide how much to spend lol

Rob: The reservoir looks like an engine fire extinguisher (yes I know it is a bump extinguisher).

Did you ever look at swapping out the Fox podium springs with the stock springs from the Viking shocks? Just wondering.

You will probably find the same thing we all did. They are rougher than the stockers at slow speed but do well at higher speeds. They eliminate the tendency of the Viking to dive in sharp turns. You have to crank down the preload for the rears pretty far to get back to stock standing height.

Jason told me he had talked to another Viking guy about a heavier set up, I didn't know it was you!
