    Fox shock on 2013 Genius

    So I read somewhere that the new Fox set up that is on the 2014 Genius is NOT COMPATIBLE with the 2013 model. Does this mean that there is not any ability to swap out to a Fox rear shock?

    The news coming from the Scott dealer camp was conflicting.

    That the 2014 Fox Shock could be fitted to the Med & Large, but not the small. Others have reported no compatability.

    I don't know about the stander Fox CTD shock. I bet it works, and somebody's done it.

    I received an email from someone at Scott and they said that the 2013 Genius would not accept an aftermarket shock from Fox, nor would the 2013 accept the 2014 Fox shock work on the 2013. I wonder if I was really corresponding with someone from the company who really knows what they are talking about.

    Has anyone even tried to swap out the DT shock with a Fox. BTW, my DT has been working just fine for 8 months!

    I just measured the shox from my 2013 genius and it is 7.875" and I think the stroke is 50mm or 2" know what I need is the reducer size and take a chance I saw in another thread that a guy succesfully changed the dt for a fox in a spark so its possible!!!

    Re: Fox shock on 2013 Genius

    Have y'all contacted fox? They responded to me a while back and told me what would fit on the bike.
    I'm waiting to see what magura comes out with since I'm planning on running their 140mm fork that's coming out soon.

    Re: Fox shock on 2013 Genius

    Looked it up in my email and this is what they said:

    With that bike you can fit* any of our air rear shocks.* As far as remote goes you can get either the FLOAT CTD Remote at $470.00, or you can get the FLOAT X for $595.00.* The price for both of these is without the remote.* The size of that shock is 7.5” x 2.0”.

    Re: Fox shock on 2013 Genius

    Agreed. Its not plush but not horrible. I do intend to put a magura (depending on what comes) or a fox and putting a magura fork on it as well.

    Thats weirds. Because if you check the specs on the Scott website, it says 200x57mm/7.875x2.25 and there are several bikemanufacturers out there who use the same size, like liteville, lapierre etc.
