link that I copied from the product review section of mtbr:Picard said:Does anyone know if there is any performance difference between fox float RL and the RP3 ? My stumpjumper currently has RL version. I am wondering if I should upgrade to RP3 for lighter weight. I can't find reviews of RP3 on mtbr.
imho for medium/heavy riders. at your weight it could have a slow rebound, even on a bike with high ratio leverage.Picard said:I weigh at 130lbs. I wonder if this shock is suitable for me. Is this shock made for lighter weight rider or heavier rider?
I weigh 153 lbs. I use all 3 settings of the PP but mostly leave it in the middle setting. There is a difference with the settings when riding... I do feel it. Regarding the rebound- there are 9 "clicks" of adjustment so you should be able to find the right rebound setting for your weight. This shock is plush on the dh and yet firm for the climbs. It is the most efficient air shock that I have tried.Picard said:I just read the reviews on RP3 on mtbr. Many riders comment that the propedal settings don't have significant effect on plushness. I notice alot of riders weight between 160-200lbs. I weigh at 130lbs. I wonder if this shock is suitable for me. Is this shock made for lighter weight rider or heavier rider? What are those propedal settings for?
