    2005 Blur XC with RP3 upgrading to RP23

    Can someone tell me what compression tune and rebound tune are on their Blur XC w/RP23? It's indicated by the bar chart sticker on their RP23. Would I able to reuse the mounting spacers that's on my RP3? Anyone knows the mounting hardware specs for the Blur XC?

    Is there something wrong with your RP3? The RP3 is quite as reliable shox. Unless you want to upgrade to RP23.

    I found that for my BXC, the platform feature is not really necessary. Quite happy to leave it open.

    No need for propedal if you ask me. Flicking the switch doesn't really make any difference while climbingon my BXC. I should have known better from my Nomad....

    I wouldn't consider that much of an upgrade as I have both (a Push RP3 and 09 RP23). I would Push the RP3 and save your $ for something else to upgrade.

    It's just that my RP3 is getting old and probably could use a rebuild. Ebay has RP23 for pretty cheap but I might go with Push route.

    No problem, Push will put a nice new BIG sticker all the way around the air can and top it off with a blue o ring on the shaft. It should feel like butter and you will actually be able to feel the difference when you use ProPedal.
    My new RP23 is making noises all ready, less than a month old, it will be Pushed before the Winter Solstice!

    The only time I flick the Pro Pedal switch on my RP23 is when I'm on the road. Then I lock out the front fork as well. I prefer the suspension working when I climb.
    Screw the shuttle, I'm riding to the top. You're all worthless and weak!!!
