    swinger 3-way vs. Fox Flt R for single pivot

    Thinking about buying a single pivot suspesion bike. It comes with and option of a customed tuned Fox Float R or a Swinger 3-way. From what I understand the Fox easy because you down have to set it up and it provides small bump abasorption but I notice some pedal bob. The swinger, on the other hand, has less pedal bob, can be tricky to set up and less small bump absorption. Is this true? Any recomendations on which way to go? Thanks

    considered the Fox RP3? I have a single pivot fs bike and this shock seems to be made for single pivot suspension designs. Though I have never tried the Swinger 3-way- sounds like a porno movie-

    Sounds like a porno movie indeed! It's not offered for the Ellsworth distance.
