That's impressive that someone of your size can get away with EXO+ and Tannus Cr4w. I actually put Cushcore on the hardtail and I love it. A little more weight but the damped feel is really positive. Tannus in the front and Cushcore in the rear might be a good combo but I haven't yet done Tannus on the HT at all so it will be a good comparison. I also suspect that Tannus might make more sense for riders across a wider weight range because it seems to me, as you go up in pressure the support the insert gives you increases, while that is more static with Cushcore. I've also been wondering about playing with the 4 relief holes in Tannus. I wonder what it would be like if two of the holes were glued shut slowing the transfer of air on impact the way increasing the compression in your fork does? Or maybe making each of the holes a little smaller. It'll be interesting to see if they come out with a V2, but I don't at this point have the impression the folks at Tannus are experimenting and doing R&D the way Cushcore and FTD are for example, but I could be wrong. mrbrett - aren't you a DH racer? Will your friends still talk to you if they see you on a hardtail? LOL. It used to be that many downhillers would spend part of the winter training on a hardtail because of how it improves your riding but that no longer seems to happen. I remember seeing Andrew Shandro doing that on Fromme 25 years ago. I don't know of a better way to learn to read the terrain and smooth it out as well or as effectively as going to hardtail school, although Andrew Major might say it's being sent to the full rigid Gulag.
