So my 08" RFX is a bit of a fraken build - 650b wheels, Pike coil @ 5" ,7.5 x 1.75 RP23 for 5" in the rear as well. Geometry is trail freindly - BB 13.5" , 68* HA etc. I tried a Romic coil shock and forgot how much I was missing over an air shock. Purchased a Roco TST R in a 7.5 x 2.0 ( was going to limit the travel to 1.75" w/ custom nylon spacers) Anyways I thought a 7.875 x 2.25" Roco (5.625" collapsed) would fit an XL frame w/o the res. hitting the down tube. My Roco 7.5 x 1.75 would collapse to 5.75" , slightly longer than stock. Well the res. hits before the shock runs out of stroke :( Now I have a $$ shock that is useless :madman: Live n' learn I guess.

The Roco TST coil at 7.875 X 2.25 fits the XL 08 RFX in our garage fine. Haven't had any problems with it hitting the downtube.
Too bad about having to purchase the other size and then find out about fit issues, though...

And you were saying what about a search ? If a 7.875 x 2.25" fits my shock should have plenty of cleannce.
