So it is time to have my Float R serviced. Having received the bike used, I don't think it was ever serviced. So, I was thinking about having it Pushed but for about another $200 I think I could find a DHX air or Monarch Plus, etc. on eBay.

Thoughts?

I'd push the shock or go coil.

Cool. I was entertaining a coil but never rode one. I'll see what I can find. I know people rave about the CCDB. Any others that people recommend?

Elka or CCDB. I had a DHX 5 with the PUSH MX mod. It rode great, and the shock got rid of the stupid pedal feedback in the granny gear of my Nomad. But, I'm ready to try a CCDB.

Depends on what you ride most. If XC then send the Float to Push and save the additional weight gain with a coil. If mostly shuttle runs then go with a coil. If it's a toss up, I would lean towards getting it pushed just because they will setup the shock to your riding style.

What are the advantages of going coil on the Nomads? Other than big hit capabilities? I don't hit gaps or anything too crazy.3 or 4 foot drops/ledges and some smaller jumps to tranny are about it... I have young kids so don't ride like I'm 25 any more.

Maybe Pushing the float would be best.

I had a DHX 5 with the PUSH MX mode on my 2008 Nomad, and one word. Small bump performance :thumbsup: That bike was like a couch.

Push did such a good job that they tuned out the pedal feedback in the granny ring as well.

Since I've already tried a DHX, I'm looking at a CCDB this time.
