I use the legends system at the rear and the Tricky air system at the front - two separte compressors, completely two separate systems. They both work great. Your call.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. The legends is a bit bouncy, on the Tricky you can adjust the dampening by adjusting the rate of release for each canister - pretty neat.

Take care,

The legends frames are great, structuraly and very precise interms of engine / trans alignment. The frames cannot rest on the ground without modification - they are not meant to. Since it is your first build, it is your call, comfort with the lowlife, or back pain with the hardlife - they are both great iun my opinion. You could do the hardlife with a spring seat as your suspension and it would be just as good.

Let me know,

Dave Dupor

On my builds I have used Legends for the rear and tricky's for the front. They are basically the same air compressor - different solenoid valves. I would try looking into the air ride technologies (they are car specialists) they are a bit larger but much better in terms of recovery and efficientcy. AIR FX has a new system that I would like to try soon - they have a larger compressor as well, along with the Platinum series sold by MC Advantages.

Take care,

Dave

Thanks for the quick reply Dave
I Like the look of the Hardlife swingarm looks awsome i love the Element bike they built. How is that you get the Frame on the ground?
Is that the same system that Matt H uses on his Lowlife frames? Im sure he used an inverted Perse fork on Chingon
Thanks
