    FOX FLOAT RP23 Adaptive Logic on 2009 Epiphany?

    Does anyone know about replacing the rear shock with a
    FOX FLOAT RP23 Adaptive Logic on 2009 Epiphany?
    The ex dealer in Los Gatos, Ca says I need a rear shock
    that is "tuned" by Ellsworth.

    WTF?

    Much thanks if anyone has any 411

    You do not need the tuned by Ellsworth rear shock (they dont even offer that shock anymore). You should make sure you get the low compression tune though. I have changed the shock on my Epiphany.

    there are 3 compression tunes for fox shocks. low medium high. the low is more supple in the inital stroke and handles square edge hits better but depending on your weight and riding style might blow through the mid stroke too quickly, a shock tuning company can sort this easily though.

    Thanks for the info from folks.
    I emailed Ellsworth and got the following for the 09 Epiphany.
    Rebound Tune: M
    Velocity Tune: L
    Boost Valve Tune: 200
    Shock size 7.875 x 2.0

    Looks like the following companies do shock tuning:
    Push Industries - FOX RP23
    cyclemonkey
    hippiesuspension
    cr1engineering
    avalanchedownhillracing
