    Thanks mate, just what I was looking for.
    That's put me off quite a bit though, and reckon I'll stick with what I got. The Undead M is quite a bit smaller than the Makulu size M, but the large Undead seems a tad too big for me.

    Ah well, think I'll just stick with the Uprising, whenever that comes out.

    I think the undead is going to be my next dh bike. Until then i'll continue to beat the piss out of my existing bike.

    Ahhhhhh!
    My frame gets here Monday, can't wait to built it up and ride.

    Crazy, just noticed you're running zero LSC. No wallowing in corners with that setup? Seems scary to run zero LSC.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Zero clicks on the adjuster doesn't mean zero damping by any means, especially on RC4's. They have a lot more resistance in the first 1/4 of stroke compared to something like a BOS or CCDB because of the boost valve and large shaft, therefore I think less LSC works better. Kevin thinks 5 clicks is a good starting point which I don't disagree with (by all means go with that) but having tried the BOS in there for some testing I think there's lost potential in bump absorption on the RC4 that can be recovered with some clever setup, and running a bunch of LSC is not the place to start.

    I'm also running about 26-27% sag last I checked (375 spring @ 177lbs with gear), so it's a fairly firmly sprung setup. It's very stable, and means it doesn't let the BB get too low in the low+slack setting. The frame is pretty progressive in that first third so I found 33% sag excessive, but I do have a 350 spring to try at some stage and I'd definitely run more pressure and comp damping (incl. LSC) if I do that.

    I'd rate it as one of the most stable bikes I've ridden in corners and in general, the flat middle of the leverage curve seems to deal with that incredibly well. The only reason I'd run more LSC (currently) is to make it accelerate better, it pedals pretty decently but since you're coming off a dw-link bike (as I did) you'll notice it's not *quite* as good.

    YMMV. Share your settings, thoughts and sag you settle on when you get going.
