Thanks to Floss for organizing and for everyone else that showed up. It was a fun ride and good to meet some new faces in Calgary.
The 530 is definitely a fun bike. It is perfect for ripping along those trails that were running parallel to the FSR. I was bottoming out the back end though on a few of the bigger bumps and ditches. I will have to stop and adjust the compression damping next time out. It is the perfect setup now for me after getting it lowered a bit. It can handle the trails fine and can cruise all day at 100 to 120km/h as long as my rear end can take it!
Bottoming out is requiring new springs, not compression dampening.
