    Push or Risse?

    Just as the title says, I was thinking of getting my rear shock overhauled (2011 Fox RP23, Yeti 575). Just saw that Risse Racing offers a service as well as Push industries. Risse seems to be less expensive, but I have heard very good things about Push. Any input on experiences with either would be greatly appreciated.

    I've sent my RP23 to Push for the Factory Tune and rebuild, and it came back better than stock. To be fair, I specified the Plush tune, which fit great with my bike and riding style. Nothing wrong with the stock shock, it was just a matter of preference. I haven't had any experience with Risse, but was impressed with Push's turnaround time and result.

    Risse is a quality shop that should do a good job. Push is also a great option. I have used several of the "big" suspension shops and Push is, in many ways, the most professional of them all. They are expensive but worth it.

    Suspension Experts in Asheville is pretty amazing as well. They have more of a tinkerer background. For simple overhaul/rebuild, I think you can shop on price and/or lead time.

    I dont think anyone re-engineers floats except push. Push returns you a different product, I believe everyone else sends you back a float.

    That is a good point. They include a new piston and re-shim it to your liking. I assume most other places just re-shim? Are the newer Fox product still shim based?

    i have personally dealt with risse and dirtlabs (they are local). while they were not for the same thing; risse for new shocks, and dirtlabs for rebuilds. both are very good and will do what is needed if a complete re-tuned shock isn't needed. a close friend of mine has used push and dirtlabs.......and would agree, depends on what is needed/wanted.

    again, having dirtlabs 20minutes from my house is handy, and they are great guys! as are risse! and ditto for SEX andpush

    Push does a dang good job of having their customers promote them. Must be a 'good service' thing.

    Every one I know who waited for Push to redo their shock has loved it. Absolutely better than new. Give them all your info correctly and you won't be disappointed!
