Is it wrong to enjoy a bike this much?

Got in a good ride in on the Fisher today. Haven't had to toy around with the suspension much got lucky with the psi and knob adjustments on the first go at it.

When you take it to bed with you, that's when it becomes wrong.

No, if anyone tries to tell you that it's wrong, proceed to rip their face off. Sweet bike.

We ordered a few of the TALAS 32s for trailbikes. Compared to the old Manitou one we still have sitting in the parts bin, the Fox seems like it came off the set of a sci-fi movie.
Nice ride.

I would suggest playing around with these variables some more. I thought I had a good set-up also, but after playing around with all the settings, I've made it even better and perhaps learned a few things about suspension set-up.

BTW, it's not wrong to enjoy a bike to the Nth degree. That's why they exist!
