Just bought off ebay for a bargain price, it's in immaculate condition with one or 2 tiny scuffs:

I took it for a quick blast at cc earlier. Really plush and smooth. It jumps differently to my cove so that's one thing to get used to, but other than that I'm well impressed

I found it tends to absorb the jump a little more than you expect making clearing table tops a little harder than anticipated. I upped the rebound speed a little and found it helped a bit, I alos cranked on a couple of turns extra to stiffen the rear for pure jump runs. messed witht he plush on rooty bumpy stuff though so if you are on a mixed trail may not work.

I had my Domains serviced and they worked really smooth after - think they had been stored for a while and were a tad slow and sticky before hand.

Yeah, I've never had a long travel 'big' bike before so it'll take a bit of getting used to, but I can't wait to hammer it :-) even the quick blast I gave it I was hitting stuff faster and with more confidence than my old am bike :-)

To be honest I wish I had tinkered with the settings on the shocks more than I did - kept meaning to and would get back in from a ride thinking, oh yeah must tweak in an extra turn of rebound on the forks but then I'd forget and go out again and remember I hadnt done it. Unfortunately my forks lost the rebound knob so needed an allen key to adjust it.

Actually that's a good point - worth pulling the red knob off the forks and popping it in a camelback as it will fall off at some point otherwise - flawed design!

Yeah fair play it's lovely to ride, I'm still playing with the suspension to get it right but it feels great. I've got an uplift booked next weekend to get it dialled in properly :-)
