    Anyone running X-Fusion O2 @ 650b?

    So far, all of the 650b "conversions" I've seen on Mojos are using Fox rear shocks. Does anyone have any experience using the X-Fusion O2?

    Yep. Replaced my pushed RP23 with a stock O2 RCX, running an HD140 w/650b. Still getting it dialled in, but so far so good. What info are you looking for?

    Did you have to modify/shim the O2 to work with 650B? I'm looking at possibly trying the "tweener" wheels on my Mojo SL and run an O2 in back.

    No, it's a 7.875x2.0 shock which doesn't require shimming on the HD140. Not sure if you'll need to on the SL, but it's easy to check. Just mount the shock, install the tire you want to run, and check clearance @ full travel with shock deflated. Add washers/shims as necessary until you don't get any seat tube contact. I think for the SL you won't need that much shimming --if any-- to prevent contact.

    Good luck!

    Anyone running X-Fusion O2 @ 650b?

    Good info! I'm also interested in this shock. There a 4 settings with different compression tunes, correct? Could you describe how it performs?

    Thanks
