    All Fox shocks that come with Fourstrokes have old Triad design. There is no separate high-speed rebound circuit. Your rebound setting is always compormise. If it is too slow the shock will pack up during repeated hits and will feel harsh. If it is too fast it will kick back and feel harsh.

    More details here:

    Pictures that show the internal construction:

    And finally cure:

    Avalanche is solving you CTD Evo shock woes!

    Either Avalanche or Suspension Werx can rebuild the shock with proper dual flow piston. It is expensive but IMHO well worth it.

    I myself got Rockshox Monarch RT3 Debonair. I like it very much. I filled the positive air chamber with tuning bands to make the shock more prorgressive.

    The old Kashima-coated shock is for sale.

    I have not used DT Swiss shocks. Looks like X313 is brand new design. So it might be good.

    Picture of the internal construction here:

    DT Swiss 2013 - SPLINE Laufräder (26", 650b, 29") und X 313 Dämpfer - MTB-News.de

    Unfortunately it is not possible to make any judgements based on this.

Over less than a year of riding, mine has significantly worn through the carbon and created a large hole. I would recommend putting something in place to stop the wear on the carbon. Ideas I had were some of the snap on frame protectors from Jagwire or Sram (Amazon.com: SRAM Frame Protector for Brake and Shift Cable Housing (Set of 4): Sports & Outdoors , Amazon.com: Jagwire Tube Tops 3G, Housing Covers/Frame Protectors, Black, Bag/4: Sports & Outdoors), or a cable boot such as used on a v-brake (Amazon.com: Pyramid Cable Boot V-Brake Rubber Black: Sports & Outdoors). Share any other ideas or solutions you find.

    Here's the wear on my frame. This should be a small hole approximately sized to match the cable. I have reported this to my dealer and they're passing to BMC, we will see what they say. This really should have been installed with a grommet in place.

    Does somebody else has this issue. I just saw mine and don't want the hole to grow bigger. Is this something BMC has to deal with?

    UP!? I have the same problem also. I tried the sram/jagwire hose protector and that wont hold there.

    I think that with Rotor BB you can use 30mm axle on PF92 frame as well: Rotor Bike Components
