    Push Industries Question

    The lockout is fried on my Float RL. I need to get it fixed anyway so what exactly is the advantage of sending it to Push?

    Gracias

    Push will re-valve your shock, with a "platform" for you, your riding style, and the type of bike. The Lockout goes away with a Push upgrade. The benefit is a better handling shock that has very little bob, and rides higher in it's travel.

    Are there any benefits if you already have a Fox ProPedal shock?
    Ride dangerously. Take chances.

    Yes. Push will custom tune you shock. And yes, the push mod is better than the ProPedal of 2004.

    We've had FOUR shocks PUSH'ed, three on Jekylls. I agree with all the previous posts, it will improve everything on all the levels they've previously specified. However, the reason for your lock-out being fried could be an internal problem that prevents any rebuilding. How do I know? Already happened. Louis, my ridin' bud, (SunDog on mtbr), sent one in. His lock-out was "fried", also. The internal piece was actually sheared off! A piece was tumbling around inside and destroyed it. He bought a new-in-the-box shock and I sent it in for him.

    Southern Arizona could use a "PUSH"

    Louis and I are going to do a "long term test" write-up, soon (multiple months of riding, different riding types and areas).
