I have read a few reports and received info from owners who have changed springs on the XC. Most gave the Hyperpro a huge + for improvement while some other brands did not make that much difference.
Other than oil and springs there is not much else that can be done to the standard fork. In Oz Hyperpro front springs are approx $250 and the rear shock is $1650 (compared to the Ohlins for $760 delivered).
Might just do the front springs and oil first and see what the difference is and then think about the Ohlins.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”
