The Suspension is something special

Fox 32 Range DRCV FiT Factory Kashima 

Fox RP2 Factory Kashima 


The rear shock is different from the Standard EX 9, Not only is it full Kashima, but the DRCV has been removed. Steve ( The original buyer ) had a friend who worked for Mojo Suspension who both felt the same way about DRCV acting baggy in the 'Open' setting, so went about opening the full chamber to its max capacity. This means that in the open setting, the bike doesn't sit into the corners like it would with the DRCV.

This means a more predictable shock curve, and ultimately she sits up when you rail a corner, not absorbing and slowing through and out of the corner as a standard set-up would.

After riding this set-up myself and back to backing it at Llandegla with another EX9 on standard set-up, I can confirm that it's a massive improvement. Stability in the corner is incredible in comparison. With the suspension upgrade and the soft tubeless WTB tyres fitted the bike is so much more user friendly, pedalling is minimized, you can put the bike wherever you want on the trail and it just generally leaves you smiling the whole way down. 
This bike is the best handling bike on the market for me, and with these settings, the best bike I've ever ridden. Of course the suspension is Pro-Pedal back and front as well, and the overall weight of the bike is so light you can climb the steepest of hills with ease.

The forks have recently been serviced with new Low-Friction seals. New oil, stripped and cleaned and have had about 3 hours use since the service.

H/Set bearings haven't long been changed, around 6 hours use and the linkage was stripped and greased at the same time.

There are the normal scratches and nicks as with normal riding, this bike has been used for what it was made for, Trails. There's small marks from where my dropper-post cable used to rub by the S/Tube, some marks on the left hand side of the frame near the stem and general chips under the frame tube and 'swingarm' There's nothing glaring on the bike but some nicks and marks as you would expect.

I love this bike, and I'm only selling it to help fund a new business venture.
To build this bike from new you'd be looking at round £4000.00 so grab yourself an upgrade for this summer at a brilliant price.
