Strengths:    Super easy to use! Plush travel. The compression and rebound knobs have 13 clicks, which makes it easy to adjust on the fly. For 13 clicks, it has signifigant effect on the shock.

Weaknesses:    Changing the coil is a pain. Unless you have a punch and a press, take it to a shop or you will destroy your bushings.
Dont turn the coil more than twice (Per FOX) or you will add undo stress on the collar and change your compression and rebound settings.

Bottom Line:   
My shock is a 2005 and it is bombproof. It is coil technology so no messing with air or pumps. I put one on my wifes bike too. It is great for DH, and free riding. Getting the right coil is easy, just call FOX and they can tell you what size coil based on your weight and riding style.

If it needs a rebuild, great, Craig will just be rebuilding it anyways. So, if you want or need to get rid of that old shock sitting around in the tool box, PM me or ... Read More »

Heckler and Van RC 2011 shock

After reading lots about an coil shock on the heckler i am close to buying a Fox van RC 2011 shock. It has LSC wich is good against the pedal bob. But what about the end compression. The Linear suspension of the heckler would blow right through the travel? I'm not yet planning to send it to pus ... Read More »

Is it worth trying coil? Kage v Vivid v Van RC

Debating trying a coil shock. Currently have a monarch plus RC3 which is excellent. Since getting a hardtail for xcish and hack about duties, the 6" is being reserved for the gravity side of things so weight and pedalability have dropped down the priority list. With the coil shock, i am hoping to ... Read More »
