    Suspension upgrade for Tanuki

    I have 2012 Tanuki and while a decent bike, the suspension sucks. Can anyone recommend an upgrade - Fox, etc?

    You should be able to find a used (rebuilt or in great condition) Fox RP2 / RP23 with Boost Valve for ~ $200.

    Definitely make certain it is the Boost Valve model as that bike benefits from some extra mid-stroke support.

    Unless you are light (under ~160 pounds) try and find one with a Velocity Tune of Medium (low speed compression).

    Tanuki is a great - value - bike, but the right rear shock definitely makes a huge performance upgrade.
