    Help I ruined my Carbine!

    Yup, I need some help. I swapped my Fox 36 for a BOS Deville today. The front of the bike now feels so much better that it's like I'm riding a hardtail. My Fox RP23 has got to go. What I'm wondering is if anybody here has tried a BOS rear shock? A DBAir seems like a no-brainer, but before I pull the trigger on that, I'm wondering about the BOS Vip'r or the Kirk. Or - maybe just sending the RP23 to PUSH?

    I have BOS Deville and Kirk on my Carbine... best upgrade ever. Bar none. This bike feels so balanced and fast its scary.

    Pic of bike before I converted to 650B, but you get the point.

    I would love to hear about the difference between the two forks. I have an Uzzi with a Fox 36, seems to work but I have nothing to compare it to.
