    Costum tuned Rear Shocks on Cannondale Scalpel 29 Carbon?

    Hi. Im out to buy a new rear shock for my Cannondale Scalpel 29 2 Carbon. It will be a Fox Float CTD. Does any one know if there is done any costume tuning to the Shocks that is delivered with the Scalpel Carbon Bikes from Cannondale, or are they just standard shocks? The Compression tune and Climb tune for the shock Im looking at are Firm. Thanks in advance. Princi

    I sent my RP23 from my Scalpel 1 29er to PUSH. Give them a call.

    What do the PUSH do to the shock, and did you feel any difference?

    PUSH revalves and services the shock, optimizing it for your weight and intended use. They can also install a bump stop for big hits.

    I weigh 210, and noticed a major change in my RP23 when it came back from PUSH. No more mid-turn wallowing, much more platform when in PP mode, and a totally bottomless feel. Lost a bit of small bump sensitivity, but that was acceptable trade-off for me and my intended use. Got most of the SBS back when I replaced the shock DU bushing with RWC needle bearings.

    The bike now sucks up everything, seemingly never bottoms, pedals uber efficiently and handles like a dream.
