    Fox DHX2 for Nomad 4?

    I see Fox now has their DHX2 available in 230mm x 60mm which fits the Nomad 4. Anyone try one yet?

    Also, is there are a coil weight to rider weight chart available for the N4?

    Yes there is a published chart on the SC website for the Nomad 4 and coil spring weights. Depending on your riding weight, most people are on 450's or 500's for springs ( 175-200 riding weight).

    Fox does have metric DHX2 shocks available, mounting hardware can be harder to find.

    I also noticed they have a 230mm x 65mm version.

    I thought I saw a photo somewhere of the Super Deluxe Coil with a plastic spacer behind the rubber bumper. Is the shock actually a 230 x 65?

    I deflated my Super Deluxe Air and there does seem to be tire clearance with the DHR 2.4 to accommodate extra rear travel, which would be bumped up to 184mm with 65mm stroke.

    I intend to switch back and forth between air and coil, and an extra 14mm would be welcome for DH days. I also have a spare Lyrik that's already set to 180mm that could be swapped out in about 5 minutes.

    Looks like the stock RS Super Deluxe is a 230 x 65.

    Haven't tried it yet. Slightly concerned about pedal strikes after today's DH race practice on the Nomad.

    May end up just getting a V10. We'll see.

    Easiest way to answer is try full travel without coil on. You ride low setting?
