    What shock for Mach5

    The RP23 is putz, the air and oil mixed and is making squishing noises.
    Right now I have 3 options:
    1. Send it to Fox to fix it ~$100
    2. Send it to Push to tune it for my weight ~$170
    3. Buy an RockShox RT3. What size and tune do I need if I go this route? ~$300

    Good question...I'm going through the same issue with my mach5. I think I'm going to ditch the RP23, but don't know what I'm going to replace it with. I'm going to look into options from marz, xfusion, and maybe even manitou. In the meantime, I might just service the RP23 myself.

    I would say option #2.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    Its in transit to Push for a factory tune schedule for next week. Can't wait. I hope it was money well spent as I never liked how the RP23 rode on the M5.

    i just had the same tune pushed for 175 lb trail rider. It's been 3 weeks and AWESOME... I love it. Bottomless feel, tracks really well when the terrain get's rough, and I leave the propedal off all the time now except for road rides. Best money spent and well worth it.
