    Coil rear shock for 04 Specialized FSR, too fat for a RL + BETD link.

    I guess I've pushed my self into a bit of a pickle. I've ordered a new BETD link for the bike which will force me to run a more air in my soon to be PUSH'ed Fox Float RL. The people at PUSH suggest that I do not run the new link because at my BW ~250lbs I'll be really close if not over the 300psi of the RL.

    I really want to run the BETD, its already paid for so is the PUSH service for that matter. If I wanted to run a coil shock with a 6" eye to eye length what would be a good place to start looking?

    Or would running a longer air shock change anything?

    I have come across this.
    Her Cheng(YASUSU) Co., Ltd. from the little bit I can find about them they appear to be a legit manufacturer of shocks and the few reviews are favorable.
    I can't find any current or even recent manufacturer of shorter length coil shock in the mtb world.

    Check out Risse Racing. They make great shocks and go down to 5.5" eye to eye for their coil shocks.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I just emailed them about the Jupiter 5/5R.

    Remind me not to have delusions of grandeur when rebuilding a 10 year old bike.

    I've sent emails to all. Does anyone know where I can get a newish Fox Vanilla R even? If there are hidden depositories of a discontinued shock my google fu is too weak to find it.
