I've had 2 9point8's.. both had issues.
Have the bike yoke 185 now. It's doing quite well.
What were your issues?
Both lose air pressure over time. My buddy has the same issue.
The stanchion was getting scored on one of the units. Apparently a burr or something sharp in the internals.. I assumed some grit had gotten in there.
Inconsistent lever throw, sometimes lots of flop before disengaging the brake, sometimes really tight. My buddy had major issues with this to the point that he couldn't engage the brake.
One came with a missing foam wiper. Customer service wasn't super helpful when I brought this up.
And personal preference, I don't think the head allows me to tilt the nose of my saddle down enough with today's slack seat tubes. But I have long legs and run a pretty extreme angle. Customer service told me to go get a bike fitting.
