I'm 60 years old with two bad shoulders and I am hoping to still be out riding for at least another 20 years so I'm always looking for anything that will add a little more comfort to my ride. With that in mind I decided to try the Fasst bars since they had a 30 day trial period. I tried them for three weeks and thought they were OK but not worth the money. I took them off to return them and reinstalled my SQ Labs 16 degree bars and took off on a ride. I got about 3 miles in and headed back to the house to reinstall the Fasst bars. It's the old saying, "You don't know what you've got til it's gone." Have not looked back. My shoulders are not longer sore after a ride. Highly recommend giving them a try. I have the OneUp bars with RevGrips on my hardtail and it is an improvement over the previous bars and grips, but not nearly as much as the Fasst bars so I'm planning to replace them in the near future. I tried the RevGrips on the Fasst bars, but they did not play well together for me so I have ODI F-1 grips. Great comfort.

Have a Wolf Tooth on one Reverb and the new 1x on another. Bought the Rock Shox 1x remote a few weeks before the Wolf Tooth was announced. I wanted to try it out before I bought a second Rock Shox 1x remote for the second post. Decided to try the Wolf Tooth for the second bike with a Reverb since I like the one I have on my bike with the Fox Transfer post. Definitely prefer the Wolf Tooth, but not enough to make me want to change out the remote on the other bike. Either is a vast improvement over the plunger.
I am running my Enduro with 27.5+ wheels and 3" Spez Purgatory tires that I took off my hardtail 27.5+ bike until I can get the 29er wheelset built. I will definitely be trying it with the + rear and 29er front. A bit surprised I haven't seen any reviews of these bikes that can run either + or 29er with the mixed configuration.
