I use the Doge 8 (which I love) and am considering an upgrade. I've spoken with Vic at Pacific Valve and he has steered me away from the Clarity, saying that the upgrade isn't worth it. I'd like to hear what former Doge 8 users have moved on to. I will buy used and tubed with a budget of around $2000. I have VAC 90 monos with phi upgrades. Thank you for any and all input.
