    I dont know if its possible I always wanted to get the twinlock off but you can ask fox directly.

    What i can say its that fox rear shock float ctd is f***ing awesome Im loving my bike now its really 150 travel machine. Swaping the dt swiss is was the best call for me.

    Going to try out a RockShox Monarch RT3.

    Tune: MM (S)
    Compression Damping: Medium
    Rebound Damping: Medium
    Threshold: Soft

    I was planning to get a shim stack with a Firm threshold, with possibly a Low compression tune, but this one feels really good and I don't notice any pedal induced bob when cranking it out on the flats (road).

    Also: I stated elsewhere that the shock hardware was 22mm x 8 mm. I was wrong, I remeasured and got 22.2x8.

    Ride report to follow once I find some dirt...

    So do I understand correctly, if I swap out my DT shock I will lose the Twin Lock device? Is it possible to use the Fox lever set up? Does Fox sell the lever and rear shock together?

    I'm happy with no twinlock it was to much cables....

    Update: Got 20 miles in this morning, 3000' climbing, in a mix of snow/ice/dirt. About 26 Degrees. I weigh 155 lb, and had about 15 lb worth of shoes/clothes/lights/pack. I run a 140 mm Pike RCT3 up front, 51mm offset.

    Shock Model:
    2014 Monarch RT3

    Tune:
    Rebound: Medium
    Compression: Medium
    Threshold Tune: Soft
    Air Spring Pressure: 120 PSI

    Overall, the Monarch is quite impressive.
    • Chassis stability it phenomenal, with a “quieter” ride at the same time than the DT Nude, less upset by quick impacts.
    • The pedal mode seems pretty effective, this is a soft threshold tune…I might be wishing for a firm threshold tune. But as it is, turning it to “pedal” has almost no effect on bump absorption, and is effective for seated climbing. Standing overwhelms it though. Actually a great "set and forget" setting. Lock is not fully locked, but would be a great setting for extended climbs, it does hold the back end of the bike up a bit more than "pedal"
    • I’m most impressed with its ability to feel firm when needed, and really open up on the smallest of high speed hits...pedalling at low speed, I found myself thinking that a low compression tune would be better at speed, but once the speed picks up, it's perfect. Just as I want it at both slower speeds and faster speeds. Med. compression tune is for sure the way to go.
    • Med Rebound or light rebound would both work for my weight and shock pressure. Could probably go light on the rebound with good results too. I had it turned all the way fast on this morning’s ride in cold temps, but wasn't wishing for faster rebound…

    I do miss the adjustable travel and geometry a bit though...it sits back a bit more when climbing than the "traction mode" on the DT, but not by much. I will likely adjust my saddle position to accommodate, and possibly lower the bar a touch. Also lost about 50 grams to the DT Nude shock/remote setup.

    Hi Gary,



    I’m unsure on other Fox shock models and fitting would be at your own risk to your frame/damage, the fox shocks on the 2014 Genius will not fit previous frames as the head of the shock is bigger and may come into contact with the underside of the frame in use (may seem fine if tested in the stand)

    We do not recommend you fit the fox shock,



    Rind regards

    I think you may be able to get around the issue of the Fox Nude fouling the frame, by fitting an offset bushing, hence moving the shock body away from the bottom of the top tube.

    I have a Genius 900 SL with a Nude 2 and 2014 FOX Talas 34 CTD 140 Remote, I would like swap the NUDE 2 with the FLOAT X Remote or FLOAT CDT Boost Valve Remote. What would be the differences between FLOAT X and the Boost valve.? What size is the mounting Kit or reducers for the 900 SL?

    The float x has a piggy back that serves for long dh performance i think and mor coil feel of the shock. I have the boost valve fox on my genius but think makes better bottom in out of the shock.

    Not had a ride out on the genius as yet. Weather in the UK is wet wet wet at the moment.

    Only other thing im going to order for the shock, is the air volume kit.

    ThenI can lower the psi in the shock body, and also get a little more ramp up in the end travel. The garage test, the bike is very plush. NOW.

    I got the shock cheap ish off ebay, brand new. Happy Days

    Been watching this thread now and some very good ideas to the shock probs on the genius.Mines ok at the moment and ive got used to the none plush shock after riding a lot of hardtails,so until its time to change ive put a lizard skins shock cover over the dt nude shock so no one can see it.Its the cheap option,but what about an x fusion shock as the new ones been getting good reviews now and there a good price.

    That looks REALLY good!

    No clearance issues then, with the mainframe-end, when the shock is fully compressed? The issue that Scott warn about when using Fox shocks with a pre-2014 frame is that under severe force/frame-flex, the shock 'head' can contact the underside of the toptube.

    Plenty of clearance, the head of the shock almost doesn't move when it is under full compress. I don't know about the severe force/frame-flex though. Time will tell.Fox shock on 2013 Genius-float-x-genuis-900sl-22.jpgFox shock on 2013 Genius-float-x-genuis-900sl-23.jpg

    hvmathews... thanks for the pictures. I've hardly rode my '13 740, and these pictures helped me move up a rear shock upgrade on my to do list.

    I assume this meant (and what you said upthread about your fork) you had to abandon the twinloc system. I'm a bit of a neophyte, so excuse the possibly dumb question, but do you have two remotes on your bars?

    MQ, another neophyte question coming up...

    Why do you have those two cylinders on the rear frame part (seat stays?)?

    I will have just one remote.... with the spliter (Dual Cable Fork and Shock)the fork has to be a 2014 also in order to work in conjunction with the shock. Fortunately I have a 2014 Fox Talas. I will show some pics as soon as I finish. Meanwhile this link shows how it works

    Bonking ... not feelin' well The Fox Float X story

    Finally I got some riding today 20+ miles of a fast trail here in South Florida I love the way the bike is cornering and in the technical section was way better than with the old shock, It feels more plushy (smooth), reliable and stable.
    At the end of the ride something went wrong with the internals at the shock remote level. The shock is not returning from the Trial position to the down position. I spoke to the guys at Universal Cycles, but I will have to return the shock for inspection, bad news for now. The return pulley looks very weak, maybe the return spring is bad. I will keep posting how this shock swap story develops, at least 3 weeks more.
