Anybody else think the nickel is very sensitive to rebound in the rear?
I have the stock float rl and man I've noticed that it likes a lot of sag and very low rebound. Just a click or 2 makes a huge difference.
I used to run it at 12mm of sag but now have settled on santa Cruz's max recommendation of 15mm.
Had the same shock on my butcher and it was terrible. I could never get the sag/rebound right for any amount of time. If I set the sag at 15mm, it plowed through travel and bottomed out. Any higher pressure and it would try to buck me off on chattery trails. The rebound seemed to work best around 4 clicks, but who knows.
If you can get rid of the float and buy a good shock, it will totally change the feel of the bike.

I strongly recommend that you take a scenic harbor cruise and when no one is looking throw that shock overboard. Otherwise send it to PUSH. Bluesky Cycling is selling 2011
Zoke LOs for around $250 which is a geat deal for an excellent shock.
$230. Seriously why did you have to post this? Come on man, killing my wallet!
