So I am growing tired of my finicky air shock on my old bike and I am trying to get ramped up to buy a new bike. I will likely buy something from the big 3 (actually, either a Trek Superfly 100 or a Specialized Camber/FSR 29er), but I have questions about the rear shock. Are there any folks riding the more XC orientated bikes (I live in Texas.... what we call touch hills, most would laugh at) with a coil-over rear?
I guess what I am asking is... can a guy weighing 250-275 or so get away with riding something like the Rock Shox Vivd R2 and if so, would that guy be able to get a spring rate that would give the right amount of sag.
I have a hard time framing the question because it is kind of broad..... but I would really like to have a bike that I can ride without worrying about the rear shock blowing out (my current ride has a dead negative air chamber that cannot be repaired due to lack of replacement parts from SRAM).
