    Fox DHX 5.0 on an Epiphany?

    Hello everyone, I am a proud new parent of a 07 Epiphany but I have one question. When I purchased the frame from a LBS I had mentioned to the saleswoman that I was not a big fan of the stock Rockshox so she offered to swap it out for the Fox DHX 5.0 from an Intense 6.6 at no additional charge. The shocks measurements were the same and it would be no problem to install. So without hesitation I said yes, but now I am thinking it may be overkill. Should I replace it with an RP23 or will it be fine. Thanks for all you input and I am looking forward to living in my new neighborhood (My old neighborhood was the Specialized forums)

    Rock it...the DHX will give you some extra bottom out resistance and super plush action. The RP will be lighter but less "tuneable" overall. Slap on a Pike air and you got a nice all mountain bike.

    Totally agree with chad. Enjoy the DHX
    "[SIZE="3"][SIZE="2"]but I do not see anything in the world of suspension methods that is superior to the 4 Bar.
