So reading through the past threads on the matter has thrown up some confusion for me (keep in mind i'm a suspension spaz)

Ohlins are stretching the budget, but i bet they're nice

I have previously run Ikons on other bikes - good performance at an affordable price.
I read Davo that you've blown a couple? Any thoughts? What did you end up with?

I've had a look at YSS website, G 302 look like one's Rhodie helped developed - no price listed.
Has anyone tried the YSS E 302 (standard replacement?) or Z 302 ?

I don't need endless adjustability as I wouldn't even know what I was doing!

Maybe I could just take it easy, but as I have a missus who is keen to come for rides, and that gives me more bike time, I should look into this.

Any thoughts appreciated (sorry if this has been covered but my search couldn't turn up the answer)

I have the YSS Z302's. Got them at
They make a great improvement. I won't do much adjusting either, but I have them set where I like them for the riding that I mostly do. I liked the price, simplicity, and look of them. Good luck with your decision.
