I have a storia V2 on my Knolly Warden. The shock is nicely done, has good features. They made the valving specifically for my Warden (they said), it comes heavily damped.has anyone tried one of these on their knolly yet? I've never seen one in person but they look legit and I've read good things from other owners.
I ended up with the Marz. Considering you probably want a larger bumper, the RS should already fit Avy's bumper system, while the Marz does not and is an additional cost. If you don't want extra bottom out then it doesn't matter.Interesting...what made you go RS over the Marz

There really isn't much of a comparison. I'm working on a real review, life just happens and I haven't sat down to get footage recorded.Thanks for chiming in James. Thoughts on the Avy vs. DHX2?
Thanks so much for taking the time to chime in man. I've run my Chilcotin fully Avy'd (Lyrik cart and Woodie) so I'm familiar with what he can do.There really isn't much of a comparison. I'm working on a real review, life just happens and I haven't sat down to get footage recorded.
DHX2 blew up on me. The shaft is smaller in diameter, and I'm not sure exactly what my issue is (haven't had time to warranty it yet), but I was leaking oil out of the shaft and now have some nice squelching noises. Had the same thing happen on an X2 as well. The DHX2 also doesn't have a good progressive bumper. The bumper basically exists to prevent destroying the shock.
The Avy tune has been great. Just like all of the reviews, it's pretty firm LSC but opens up really nicely at high speeds. DHX2 would still bob a bit on climbs, that doesn't happy anymore with the Avy tune. I've also got a larger bumper for more progressing. Talking to Craig, he said that the curve flattens out at the end stroke (progressive but flatter end stroke) and I could either go up a spring rate, or use the right spring rate and throw in the bumper. I opted for the latter route.
At the end of the day, I'd pick the Avy tune pretty much every time. That being said the DHX2 is great, I just couldn't quite get it where I wanted it. And if anyone is looking for a coil upgrade to their Fugitive I've got a DHX2 to off load
One update. The shock I purchased came with a 475 spring and its too light. So I ordered an MRP progressive 550 spring. My thinking is that the Fox X2 air shock I have on there right now already has two volume spacers and I was going to add a third. Clearly the delirium benefits from a little bit of progression in the shock. Unfortunately I'm out of town this weekend so I wont get a chance to properly test it until the following week.Any update?
