    New rear shock for 07 coiler

    Just wondering if anyone knows the price of an X-Fusion H3 in canadian or american dollars? I'm looking at that or roco tst air. They both have lock out and bottom out chamber but the h3 also has a propedal like platform which has four settings controlling the compression damping. Which is better for the buck?

    The Roco TST lever is predefined levels of "propedal". That is the whole point of hit.

    I wouldn't know. I bought a DHX 5.0 coil, loving it so far on my Coiler.

    I see. Yeah, I didn't find that the Pro-Pedal worked very well as a true lockout on the DHX. I think the leverage ratio on the Coiler is too high for it to work super well for that. Plus on the air it requires like 15 turns of the knob or something annoying. Other than that, I really liked how it felt. Haven't heard good stuff about Marz tho, so hopefully that Xfusion will work out for you. I'd be interested to see your review of it.

    Coiler, high leverage ratio...REALLY?? Since when is a 2.6 LR high? Maybe the older Coilers were bad, but the 07's are pretty nice IMO.

    FWIW, I've been beating on a Roco Air TST R for 6-8 months and not one issue. Before that I had a Roco Air R and again no issues. I will say that I was apprehensive though, given the initial problems alot of the older Roco Airs had.

    Anyhow, not hating just sharing my experiences and opinion.

    2.6? My Coiler (and all Coilers between 05-07) have 6 inches of travel, with a 2" stroke shock. My math says that's 3:1.

    Actually if the compression stroke of the shock is 56mm and the rear wheel travel 160mm relative to the shock then the compression ratio is 2.85... but that beyond the point.
