    I have about 20 rides now on my joker with fox vanilla and manitou dorado. The biggest difference in
    the suspension from my air-sprung jekyll, (aside from the extra 2 inches, woo hoo!!) is that the
    dampening actually knobs make a difference.

    Which is it?
    a) dampening on air shocks is a joke
    b) lefty and fox RC are crap
    c) vanilla & dorado are a really sweet setup

    I've gained 12 lbs on my ride (39), and I've never had more fun. I had no idea what a skittish,
    flexy, undersuspended, pedal induced bobbing, POS my old ride was until now. My new motto: screw the
    weight, get something that works and build the strength to use it. Ellsworth bikes rock.
