Wondering if anyone has tried this or had found a coil shock that will fit. Posting in new thread so as not to highjack the current Ransom thread with some valuable info in it.
That's awesome! I've been really happy with the stock rear shock but that thing must be a monster now! How does it compare to the original?Hi,
First post on site. I have an XL ransom 910. I have a metric trunnion fox DHX2 with it setup 205*65 and currently using a 450lb spring for 198lb rider. I did like the standard shock but had a coil on my last bike. The bike has supple suspension for small bumps but also takes big hits without blowing through the travel. With AXS and getting ride of the twinlock the setup is much neater and I only have to worry about moving gears and the dropper. I do not have a lockout lever on the DHX2 but don't feel I need it. Standard ride in Wollongong Australia usually involves between 600- 1200m of climbing. Minimal bob.
Overall very pleased with the Ransom. Last bike was a Giant Reign with a coil. Loved the bike but like the Ransom more.
Hi! do you know if the "standard" TTX22M coil is compatible w/ the ramsom?View attachment 1265603
TTX22M Öhlins specifically made for the Ransom from the Italian distributor. Tuned in for my weight and riding style. 5 minutes job to change the shock and enter a different world of riding.
Weight penalty is just 300g. It climbs like heaven and says high in its travel. Very composed feel going down.
If you call Craig at Avalanche, he has a solid work around. He completely retunes the Marzocchi Bomber CR. I have upgraded bumper, spring, and the internals are reworked. It works great! I could not tune out blowing through all of the travel without either being in the "traction mode" or airing up the shock and loosing some of the magic that the Nude shock offered. But........as you know.....nothing is normal for my size, but the Avy tuned Coil gives me all of what I was looking for.leverage ratio is not optimal for coil according to most suspension companies. Doesn't mean it won't work but an air shock will work better.
to keep the climb switch I believe he enlarged the hole with the rubber gromet at the top of the bottom bracket. Didn't look like it needed a lot but in stock form I think it would have rubbed enough when flexing that it could have been an issue. I doubt making that hole a hair bigger is an issue.Mod frame? that sound interesting
