I'm running Hyperpro springs up front which definitely made a big difference and it doesn't blow through it's travel anymore (now I can hit stuff harder ). The springs are taking some of the sting out of what the rims get I think. Ohlins sure would be nice though!

Yeah I thought my front wheel was about to come apart, it was definitely a scare. I praised my suspension and then bought a set of spare tubes and a best rest air pump after that. Insult to injury, I got stuck in Virginia for quite a few hrs trying to figure out how to get back to Maryland. I have crashed on the track and the street before but this was prime time high speed traffic so I was extremely lucky to stay upright (75% luck 24.9% suspension 0.1% skill)
