    Coil Spring shock for Riot?

    Anyone have any advise on a coil spring shock for my Riot?

    Im considering one since I seem to be finding the bottom of my CC DB pretty often.

    Thanks

    Coil Spring shock for Riot?

    Easy answer, Avalanche Woodie or Chubie.

    I would highly recommend it. I have both a CCDBA CS and a DVO Jade. Started out the season with the CC, but recently installed the DVO for a more DH oriented ride and haven't switched it back yet. You will notice more movement out of the coil during pedaling/climbing (unless it has some sort of climb switch), but the DH performance and small bump sensitivity is amazing. Adding a coil shock really shows the versatility of this frame and further solidifies the reason why I made the switch from the Following.

    I have a spare DVO Jade for the Riot if interested. I put the Topaz on mine when it came available. Have maybe 8hrs on the Jade so like new. (Broke my ankle not long after putting it on... bike was feeling so good, got to zesty for the trail conditions...lol)

    A coil will be the best dollar for dollar upgrade you can do for your riot. Less maintenance, it may weigh a little extra and require more focused attention for (correct spring rate) set up than air but it'll out perform it hands down.

    You should be able to massage out any unwanted pedal-induced movement with Canfields suspension design in conjunction with a shock like the Jade. No climb switch needed. No two ways about it.

    I'm thinking about going with the MRP.

    But it looks like there will soon be a flood to chose from.

    The MRP Raze is a awesome shock as well, I have one on my 2016 Balance and works well with the Formula Suspension design ... you won't regret either one!!

    I am eyeballing the 2017 Fox DHX2 that can be ordered with a climb switch.

    I just put a '17 DHX2 on my '13 The One. The improvement over the CCDBA was unreal.

    I've only got 4 days on the DHX2, but it was 4 very long days in Whistler, so that is probably like a couple months worth of descending compared to rides where I'm pedaling up.

    So far, I was blown away by the DHX2. For the first time, my One felt under-forked with a Fox 36 180mm.

    I've not been able to.
    my riot rear suspension is always moving under pedal input. not that it's slowing me down, but the movement is here and it's not a small movement. I'd say it's only annoying when pedalling on paved flat sections, and definitely less disturbing when climbing.

    for comparison, I have a The One too, 8in travel with a coil shock too, and it's much more firm under pedal forces.
