Hey, I have decided that i am going to get a 600 but i really want to get into some freeriding and even some mild downhill and i dont think the manitou air will hold up. i was looking at something like a fox vanilla or dhx, or 5th element, or manitou swinger 4 way coil. i work at a bike shop so throw at any ideas, i dont care about prices. the size shock for the prophet is 7.875 as far as i know.

me too...

I'm going to get the 600 as a 2nd bike. I responded to some other posts regarding the Manitou Radium and 3 way air shocks. They are just too stiff for me. I ride a Gemini with a DHX 5.0 now, and I really like the plushness.

I'm thinking of swapping out the Radium and putting my spare Fox Vanilla R on just for the hell of it.

I hear some pretty good things about the 5th air...but I'm not a fan of the coil.

The best shock out there now is the Fox DHX 5.0.

Just make sure it fits the frame. Even though the i2i is correct, the large reservoir and bottom out knob may come close to touching (like my Gemini)
