Do you get a lot of pedal lag with the rear suspension?

I've tried this bike, only in store, and it seems great, the write up's seem a little bit too good to be true, so I'm just wondering if there's any problem with pedal bob..or whatever you call it when you're riding it on the flat.

I've come from road bikes, so am used to having all the power transfered straight to the rear tyre, and I've heard some rear shocks somehow manage to eliminate the peddal bob thing..

Any thoughts??

    Haven't ridden them but as an observation the FS Pro has a lockout on the rear shock (which should help prevent what you describe), whereas the Team and Comp versions do not..

    My mate rides one and doesn't seem to have any problems. Nice bike.
  • i have been running a team since last december, once set up no problems with bob. i notice a little when standing up and pedaling hard but no more than any other fs i have tried without lockout.

    Nice, that sounds just the ticket, thanks
