The Float RL on my Stumpjumper isn't holding pressure so I want to pick up a spare to use when I send it in for service.

Any good deals out there??

$200 dollars for the cranes creek clound nine. You just have to send your Float in as a trade. They ride pretty nice.

If you are using more than 4 clicks in on the rebound of your Fox the Cloud will not have enough rebound dampening and will bob while pedalling and pogo in the bumps. The best deals are on eBay for Float Rs, they go for $50 -$100. The RLs get a bit more because of the lockout. Hammerhead has good deals on new shocks.

Already tried that, thus the need to send it in.
Did you check the scrhader valve? These come loose sometimes. They are the same valves that are used in car tires. A simple $2 valve core tool from the auto parts store for the should fix it. There are really only two possiblities with air leaks, the seals and the valve. Could the leaking around the outside of the valve too. Pump it up to 300 psi and dunk it in water to check for bubbles.

Just so you know, you can get the shock completely rebuilt with full custom tuning from Push Industries for $140. They completely gut the shock and replace with all new and improved parts leaving you with a shock that is better than new. Gives you platform damping and much much more. Check the Shocks Forum for more details or check out their website. They have very fast turnaround so you can have your shock back in a few days.

I definately recommend the PUSH industries work. I upgraded my shock earlier this year and I can't say enough about it.
The teflon on the body is very worn, I contacted PUSH and right now they aren't able to repair/replace that part so it's on it's way to FOX.

Have A Stratos Helix Expert I Will Sell For $50 Shipped

6.5" eye to eye, stroke length what you need. Includes 600# and 500# springs. Shock is in great shape and has air assist. If you are interested, I can send pics. I no longer own the frame it was on, so it is just collecting dust.

I just had the same problem as well. Apparently on my Fox Rl I had some slight scrapes in the shaft body that every time the suspension was active, it would lose a bit of air. Seals made no difference in that aspect. Fox had to put a new shaft on and good as new.

Mine might have been aggravated by a broken linkage a couple months back (side loads) it got into the service Dept at FOX this morning. Turned out I was looking for the wrong size.. my FSR uses a 6.0x1.25 shock actually ('02 FSR stumpy pro M4)... good thing I didn't win that ebay auction. :) The teflon was completely gone in a couple spots (bare aluminum) Anyways the stratos will go on my RM pipeline in place of the vanilla.

Hey, how about a Cane Creek AD-5? I have one I would sell for cheap if you would like.
