Dave, I understand what your saying but it sounds like the bike should be fine. Im sure this bike is a monster standing next to a 1/5 scale sb5 and dont forget street bikes deal with flat surfaces where this bike deals with going vertical (jumping 5ft and landing fine). Also, think about when a bike is moving forward and the front wheel hits something like a whoop, that is when you will see the front suspension doing its best work. In other words if you push straight down on the suspension from like the handlebars it feels a bit stiff, but if for example, you hold the tire and push the bike forward the forks will feel softer. I know with the front brake installed that I see the front end nose down a lot more. It would be nice to test different spring settings.
