    New suspension options on an older bike??

    Decided after 6-7 years I'm going to do some upgrades on the ole' girl.
    I have an all new Sram XX 2x10 drive train read to install.

    One other part I'm wondering if I upgrade - since it's 6-7 year old technology is the rear suspension.
    Currently installed is a Fox Float RP3.

    Will any of the new suspensions available make much of a difference in the ride? If so, I'm willing to make the upgrade, if not.......I'm fine with the RP3.

    If so, what suspension should I look to switch to??

    Just have the shock serviced. The suspension design is still valid, and still basically the same geometry as we (Titus) use on the current frames.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks.....
    So your saying just a service from Fox will be good and not make all that much of a difference from the new Float CTD.

    Have any thoughts on servicing at Fox vs Push Ind. Will a Pushed Float be the better alternative?

    Thanks

    I had the rear shock on my Rip9 rebuilt by push after a year use. It was a huge improvement over stock. The small bump compliance was much better and it felt smoother throughout the entire stroke. They do excellent work and really know what they are doing.
