I was primarily trolling that those comments, but can't say I've had issues with deflections unless I straight punch a tree (which I do surprisingly often).. that said I also weight 250# and run at least 30" bars so I still have decent leverage even with my forks set steep.

Truth is it's like a Recluse. I'm afraid to give it an honest try because I might like it and have to add another outrageously expensive item to the "must have" accessory list... and really, how am I supposed to throw all those nak-nak-360-superman-backflip-nohanders with damping in the way?
