I'd like to change the 4-way Swinger on my 6.6 to something coil sprung. I believe that the VPP link technology does not require a shock with Pro-Pedal. Is this true? Are there advantages of having a Pro-Pedal shock?

If no Pro-Pedal is required, is there any reason not to go with a VAN R or DHX 3.0 over the DHX 5.0? I'm kind of a set it and forget about it kind of person so the bells and whistles on the DHX 5.0 don't turn me on. I have the 36 VAN up front and am loving it. Thanks.

Intense vpp bikes ride pretty darn well once you find the right sag point without any pedal platform. My uzzi came with a swinger which I switched with an old vanilla rc which I really liked. I then had that worked on by push but with no pedal platform added and it's really well suited. I ride my 6.6 with the rp3 on the lowest (zero?) propedal setting up and down the hill and I like it. Still tracks on climbs without squatting and feels as plush as it's going to get on the down side. I haven't ridden my 6.6 with a completely platform free shock but that said........I think you'd be fine the van R but you could certainly justify the dhx shocks because of extra adjustments as well as the pro pedal.
