I agree with this, but I also want to get back a reliable ajustable travel coil fork to get most of the adjustments. I really liked the coil U turn Lyrik! DP air forks don´t really work the same as there are trade offs and fork always feel "off" i one postion if you dont change all your settings. Having own a Transition Gran Mal and a Banshee Rune V2 I now always think of my bikes as "Bike systems". With an extra set of wheels, a coil and an air shock  to choose from, a coil U-turn fork and adjustable geometry you can really transform the ride to suit what conditions or trails you are going to.  It makes even more sense now when trail bikes are DH capable in reverse to how it used to be when DH(freeride) bikes could be made into OK trail bikes but with a weight penalty. Frame changes wasn`t something I did every ride though but worth it for lift assisted riding where I usually switched to DH wheels and 150 dropouts in low on the banshee. Easy enough to do in the parking lot.
