    Revalving a brand new shock, is it recommended?

    I'm getting my wife a Medium Tallboy LTC frame and it comes with a Fox CTD shock. She only weighs 115 pounds with riding gear on. Do I need to get the shock pushed to accommodate her much less than average size?

    PLEASE GIVE ME NEGATIVE REP!

    I would ride as it is and when the service time comes, have it pushed or avyed.

    It's an air shock, just set the sag for her weight and ride it
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    Boost valve or Evo? Can't tune the Evo. If she rides rough trails, money well spent. The reb in the CTD is horribly over valved unless you weigh 300 lbs.
