    GT Force Rear Shock Suggestions

    I scratched my Fox Float R and its leaking air to the point I have to add air a few times each time I ride. So I'm saving up for either sending my current Fox Float R to PUSH or getting getting a coil. Anyone running coils on their Force or Sanction yet?


    Does anyone know the specs on this rear shock? (Came across this on the Socal Trail Riders website)

    I've seen a few Sanctions with DHX 5.0's on 'em and they go very well.

    The shock on that Lopes Force is a Marzocchi Roco WC. Given it's a custom frame the
    specs will be a little differant to what you'll need. But as long as it's a 7.5x2 it'll fit.

    The Roco's seem to be a love it or hate it deal (like most Marzocchi stuff!) but
    you can check 'em out over at www.marzocchi.com.

    Personally i like the Float R Push. The Float R is one of the lightest and nicest shocks
    available to the Force and with a Push upgrade you won't need any of the the bells and
    whistles of higher end shocks like RP23, and will be a fair bit cheaper too.

    Sounds like a winner to me.

    anything like an RP23.

    depends what you intend to ride. unless you are really hucking it, the pushed float r should be fine.

    i never use the pro-pedal setting on my rp23

    The biggest drops I've hit so far are around 4-5' and I don't really plan to go much bigger than that.

    Is there a noticeable difference after push is done with it? Should I get the rebuild or the tuning system? I have a RP2.
