Day 2 on the Smash, on my home court. Yeah, this is my bike. Felt stronger than usual in all aspects. Seated climbing up Palo Comado with shock fully open - PR. Came WAY closer to cleaning a tough climb that has been my nemesis. Haven't washed out the front tire on the bike yet, though some technique adjustments have undoubtedly helped there as well. Regardless, this version of the bike has boosted my confidence a lot. I did only use about 60% rear travel for the entire ride, as opposed to full fork travel, so I think an air pressure adjustment is in order.
