    Would you run a Roco RC World Cup on a Butcher?

    (Cross posted from suspension)

    Looking to upgrade my S/C butcher's rear shock as the stock float is just not cutting it. I considered sending it to PUSH, but feel like it would just be a waste to spend any money on that shock. I found a really good price on a Marzocchi Roco RC World Cup that would fit my frame but not sure how it would work with the APP suspension curve.

    I use this bike for your typical southwestern trails with drops, high speed chatter and some tech. Weight isn't a huge concern as the bike is a little chubby and rolls slow uphill anyway.

    Any feedback or thoughts on this bike/shock combo is appreciated.

    TIA,
    Marcus

    I think the general consensus is that the Roco Air shocks are an excellent complement to the Butcher and more plush than the stock Float for the APP suspension characteristics found on Butchers and Nickels. It also seems to be the popular opinion that the piggy back found on the Roco Air World Cup is an added luxury and not really a necessity given the APP's inherent ramp-up during the last part of the the stroke.

    Thanks for the response. I've seen a few Rocos going on, good to hear that the WC should work just as well or better. I definitely like the the tunability of the Roco WC compared to the current shock. Besides, for the price, it was tough to beat
