    Thanks,

    It's a cool design I found online but seems to be unavailable anymore. It's made from PVC and can hold three bikes. It is held into the bed with ratcheting tie down, the bike is held in by the front tire and the left pedal up under the lip of the bed. Then I take a bungee cord and pull the right pedal forward to lock it in. $35 bucks to build.

    What size shock does your fsr use? Mine has 7.5 x 1.75 and is not available as a RP23.

    Also curious, I have a 2007 (same model as bluefsr) which I believe is 7.5x1.6 and no one makes a shock available in that size. Did you have it made one-off?

    From what i have been told Push will do you an RP23 and they can reduce the travel for you.

    The 2006 model was the last year with stock shock size (6.5x1.5). The Triad wasn't bad; I had the same issues as everyone else. But The RP23 is just so much better at controlling the travel.

    The reba's on mine are excellent.They are dual airs and are infinitely adjustable via the dual air system.
    Reba's are also available in Qr and 20mm so you wouldnt need a new wheelset.
    I had a set of fox's on my flux and i didnt like them could never get them plush and to take reasonable size hits with the same pressure,i could never find a happy pressure.

    Tell us something about your FSR XC. Is that wood color? I saw one like it last year at LBS, it had XC Test Bike written on it and it had a wood grain paint job. NEAT!!

    It was an XC Test Bike, unridden before I came in the door of the LBS. It was the only FSR in stock so I left with it. It's the FSR XC Pro, I took the test bike sticker off. Now has a Thompson seatpost and I have replaced the saddle since this picture with a WTB Shadow V.

    Would have gotten the test bike at my LBS but it was a large. I like things that are unique. That bike will sure draw attention.
