Keeping it simple for my next segment of the RTW as I head off to the southern hemisphere.
I have both a Ohlins equipped GSA & a new Camhead with ESA. You are making the right choice. Simply no comparison for this 200lb rider. I plan to put non ESA Ohlins on the Camhead so I can adjust front & rear independently, the way it should be.
