    Foes 275 shock
    I am wondering why Foes isn't using a Curnutt on the new frame. It does not show it as a option.

    Couple reasons
    The Curnutt added several hundred dollars and a couple pounds (coil) to the cost of the frame so it was hard for Foes to compete, some had a problem with small bump harshness with the Curnutt. I think Fox has cought up to the Curnutt level platform enough without having as hard a "platform" feel, win,win if it's all true.

    I wonder if I could take off my Curnutt off my XCT......I will call and ask.

    but most of the older Foes bikes that used Curnutt shocks used very long e2e shocks. The 6" 2:1 FXR used a shock 11 or 12 inches long.
