    I have been riding a Pushed 23 for the last couple of years on my Firebird. It is worth every penny that I spent on it. All geared up I weigh in about 200 lbs so the shock in stock condition never seemed to work right for me. Post Push modification it feels great on everything from XC to bike park riding.

    Been riding a Pushed RP23 for about a year. Before the tuning it bottomed out fairly easy and seamed to have little pop off lips. Since the tuning I never really think about my shock any more it just works. Im 200 lbs and got the Big Hit kit.

    pushed rp23 on firebird

    I had my rp23 pushed on my bird as well. Been riding it for 2 seasons. Yep, much better. I wanted better mid-stroke support without losing small bump compliance. I got it. The guys at Push can really get it dialed for you.

    Any of you guys trade out a DHX Air for your Pushed RP23?

    I haven't had any issues with my shock personally, but I had thought about sending it to them for the $30 float service. I've heard nothing but good things from everyone who used them, and part of me wants to try the full service just to see what would happen.

    I borrowed a DHX air from a friends Nomad and road it a few times. I did not like it. Perhaps it was my ineptitude at being able to tune it but the bike had a wallowy feel in the corners and G-outs that i couldn't get rid of without making it harsh in chop. I must say that i really didn't put a ton of effort in trying to adjust it either. I have owned DHX coils and RC4 shocks on other bikes and they worked well with my ham fist'd tuning capability seams that the DHXair would be similar.

    I didn't have any issues with mine either but it was due for a service so I figured why not. I wish I could tell you how awesome it is but I fractured my hand and can't even test it out. I'll give a report when i'm up and running. I have a new thomson dropper tp boot. WHY?????
