    your shop has a RS7? thats interesting.


    how does the shock feel when you push on it? is it extremely stiff unless you sit on it.
    i find my air shock on mine to be extremely stiff unless im sitting on it

    The frame doesn't have a fork mounted to it yet. But all foes got that stiff inital platform to overcome

    its a trait of the Curnutt shock, not the frame.....and my air shock stiction is 1000x worse than my coilover on my DHS Mono

    Yea the air seals on the curnutt are really tight, it took a few months on fxr for it to break in. Only RS7 i sat on was at foes and i didn't really notice it being excessively sticky

    im not waiting a few months to break them in...the shock does not move at all unless you put a lot of force on the bike. it has gotten slightly better over the past two months of riding, but nothing to speak of. it really has no small bump compliance as well.

    ...and thats why i am selling the frame

    You might want to get the shock looked at, or you can just sell it. Foes never really had small bump compliance, thats why they pedal so well

    im more inclined to sell it. it does pedal amazing, but im regretting not getting the Curnutt coilover or, ugh, Fox...plus 7" is not nearly enough for the east coast riding we do out here. im constantly bottoming the shock out even w/ shrinking the chamber size to try and compensate.
    ill have my DHS to hold me over until my Evil Revolt comes in
