I think I'll stick with my Marin Wolf Ridge full susser.
Generally I keep the rear suss of 4" of travel for convenience but on occassion I have upped it to it's full 6" travel. Boy does that soak up the bumps going down but the problem is the bob sucks most of the energy when you then hit the ups and have to start pedalling!

When I next change bikes I'll probably find a nice full suss XC with lockout and anti-bob on it!

I've no intention of swapping just yet, especially after just swapping a few damaged bits this week, that was my Xmas present early I think!!

I'll be out with the family this weekend for a smaller ride. I need to find somewhere that's really nice and muddy for the kids to get stuck in! Lots of choice in the Clwydians for that and I know some really nice boggy patches!
