X2 how to


  1. Hi Jeff, just wondering when you might do the X2 vs DPX2 comparison on the Ripmo that you’d mentioned planning on doing?

    1. Hey Tom, I’m trying out the DPX2 now. I’ve found that I’m a lot more comfortable on the Mojo 3 now, and I don’t have an X2 shock for that bike so I can’t do a clean A/B test. I did put a DPX2 on the Ripmo and as my shoulder gets better, I’ll spend some time dialing that one in. No idea on lead time for that video, maybe a month or two.
