    2014 Altitude - Shock upgrade. Where to get the right Float X or will a CCDBA fit?

    Hi, I am looking for an all carbon Altitude with proper All-Mountain shock like the Rally Edition.
    I think about getting a 799 MSL frame and change the swap the shock for a Float X or CCDBA.
    Now, where to get the Float X CTD which comes with the Rally edition? I think it is custom shimmed so an Aftermarket shock probably wouldn't work as good as the stock one.
    Another shock option would be the Cane Creek Double Air. But will it fit the Ride9 hardware?

    The Rally Edition seat stays are also a different shape where they meet the shock and swing link.

    I think that is only because of the other Ride9 position on the Rally picture. If you look on other pictures you can see that the seatstays should be the same.
