Love this shock. Feels great on just about any bike I put it on, and compression settings range from pillowy soft to turning the bike into a hardtail. Switched most of my rear suspension to Manitou from Cane Creek and Fox because it just works better. Can't do better even if you spend twice as much!
Simple bolt on upgrade for my Ibis Ripley v4, worked with original hardware, rides better than the Fox DPS. Running a Mezzer at 140mm on this bike, also excellent and the McLeod is a great match for it.
