I'm trying to find a shock in 7.875x2.0 that works best for me (if you have one let me know too!) I have an eastern slash frame, with 5 inches of travel on a single pivot.
My choices are a FOX Vanilla RC that's been pushed. It's a pretty dated shock but it is pushed... the coil is 650lbs. Is this going to be way too stiff? I weigh 170 at most, was 160 last time I checked. I ride with gear sometimes, a chest protector, shin pads, full face. But only when downhilling which I usually use my other bike for.
The other choice is a Marzocchi ROCO. It's air w/o the piggy back.
I like to do my own service and I'm a big fan of the roco coil on my downhill. Super easy to change the oil on, and apparently easy to service. I got my other roco setup super plush and it would just glide over stuff at snowshoe. But it's coil so I'm not sure if the air will be the same.
