Nothin but good things from the press regarding the 2018 Gassers, especially the engine and suspension.
Here's one of numerous write-ups that have appeared over the last coupla days:
Simply put the suspension was excellent. So good that we didn’t feel the need to adjust anything, not even mess with the sag and we were splitting riding time between at least five different bikes. The biggest surprise was in the ability of the bike to be very supple on the small bumps and when settling in the turns, then have the bottoming control to really hit ditches or jump landings without any worry. It has a very progressive feel to it with way above average bottoming resistance. This performance is right up there with anything we have ridden but of course some back-to-back testing on more familiar terrain is what will really tell the tale. Of note is that there is no difference in the suspension between the EC and XC bikes nor did we feel like there would need to be based on how well it worked. The handling has the bike wanting to follow the front wheel with a planted stability, so the turning was confidence inspiring.
