What's wrong with your AD5? Do you want more adjustability, features (propedal)?Aqueous said:I am trying to decide on a new rear shock for my '02 Sugar 3+. Most of my friends are encouraging me to get the Fox Float, as is a reply on another thread here, and even the darn Gary Fisher rep said it was the way to go. However, when I read the reviews on this site for the Fox Float the vast majority of the people just bashed it, had all sorts of problems with it, etc. Needless to say, that was a little bothersome. Also, I had some advice from a guy with a similar bike to just upgrade the AD-5 that came stock. So, I'm a little confused and would love to hear from some shock gurus out there that can help make my decision easy!
FWIW when Floats are working, they work well, and are dependable. My 2001 Float R had a floating piston failure (squishing sound), but once rebuilt by Fox it's been fine ever since.
