I am looking to upgrade my rear shock from Roco R (coil without Piggy Back res) to something more adjustable.
The Roco R I have feels OK but I can't get the rebound right, too slow on small bumbs or too quick on big hits. It also blows through its travel easily and bottoms harshley (I weigh 185lb and use a 450lb spring). I would like to drop to a 400lb or even 350lb spring.
I have been looking at the Vivid 5.1 for its low speed and high speed rebound adjustments and the Roco WC for high speed compression adjustment.
I have ruled out a DHX 5, have one on my Cove G-Spot, it was mediocre at best until it was pushed by TF Tuned and then it was excellent. I don't really want to buy a new shock knowing most of it has to be replaced to work how I want it, I also don't like the platform feel on standard DHX shocks.
Has anyone any experience with the Vivid and Roco WC on this frame or similar?
Advice/Opinions would be much appreciated.
