Nice :thumleft: Can you give some feedback on how they compare? XC vv XCx - particularly the new WP suspension.

NO don't remove the sofa. Sit on it with a nice long cold one  :biggrin: and stare at the machine  :P and dream the ride. Then make a plan  :3some: and do the ride.

Oxygen !!
Also keen to hear the comparison  :thumleft:

Suspension is really superb. Did a trip on the Groblersdal Verena Bronhorstspruit road with plenty stop/go's ripped up tar, gravel and potholes(in the new tar) ??? ??? etc. Transition from dirt to tar and back was almost unnoticeable. :thumleft:
I also enjoy the easy trip meter operation and cruise control - no more cramp in the right hand  :lol8:
Really a awesome machine,
