BLT or Bullet?

If BLT, I run a Fox DHX 5.0 coil, same size as the RP23 I was replacing. Perfect fit, no interference, and I find it hooks up a lot better than the RP23 that came with the bike, especially over roots, rocks, etc. At 200 lb, I found the RP23 seemed to wallow in the mid-stroke.

A lot of people go the Push route with great results and lighter weight. I may still send the RP23 to Push when I have some spare change laying around, but I decided to go with a coil. Works great for me and I feel more comfortable pushing the agressive side of the envelope with the coil.

Good luck.
