    Time to rebuild the shock?

    I have an '04 NRS Composite with the Fox Float R rear shock.

    Now, I'm not too sure if it's because I haven't ridden it in 6 months or if it's because I'm just not used to it or what...

    But I took it for a spin the other day, adjusting the PSI to allow for no sag, but it seems a little softer than what I remember. I can now cause the shock to compress by pedaling hard or sitting down with force. I can feel the rear end compress around hard corners or hard turns.

    Is this typical? Or is it time to get the rear shock rebuilt. It's seen a fair bit of use/abuse over the past two years...

    Even if it's no broken, a little service wouldn't hurt after two years. Perfect time and excuse to send it to Push industries to get it revalved to your like, bike and riding style.
