Does anyone have a list or a link to one of the available sizes of RP3, DHX and DHX air?
The DHX and RP3 should be listed on fox's page for sizes so try there.MK_ said:Does anyone have a list or a link to one of the available sizes of RP3, DHX and DHX air?
I'm hoping for a lightweight 7.875 x 2.25 air shock. That'll raise the BB (with a Z1/Nixon/DUC32) about .5 - .75" and hopefully solve my constant bashing-of-the-pedals problem. With a Nixon (hold yer Nixon bashing please), it'll also give me a 5.7 front/5.6 rear travel bike. Yeah, it'll change the rocker angles too, but I think it'll just stiffen up the ride slightly--I could be wrong though. Ahh...the dangers of experimenting.MK_ said:Alright. Thanks. I am secretly hoping for a 7.5x2.25. I looked at Fox's site and owner's manual and can't find the sizes._MK
Is that with a recommended fork AC, like a Vanilla? Besides, have you ever landed a drop mid pedal stroke? with one leg up and the other one down?coolhandluchs said:...if you're gonna put that on your Spot With the 7.5x2, you've only got about .25" pedal clearance when you're bottomed out (175mm cranks)--and that's center BB to center pedal spindle.
I think I figured it out with a Vanilla. Of course, I'm not the world's greatest math whiz either Even with the regular shock, you'd smack the pedals at full compression anyway--there's no way that a mtn pedal is only a 1/4 inch deep from spindle center. And, no, I don't land with one pedal down, at least not on purposeMK_ said:Is that with a recommended fork AC, like a Vanilla?

That's a good point, I came to a Spot from a Burner which had a lower BB. I did smack my pedals more, but it wasn't that dramatic, something I would need to work on, most likely. All in all, this is just a thought, because if that shock does in fact exist in DHX flavor it will still be a difficult decision to make due to weight at the very least. I was inspiered by an ad in the classifieds for the Vanilla RC in the desired dimension by a sponsored Turner rider who had it on his 5 Spot.coolhandluchs said:...With a shock that's the same overall length but with more stroke travel, you'll be running more sag...
