80mm rear travel Racer-X question
Just curious - I've been riding my Vicious Groover 29er with the 80mm Titus rear end (RP23 shock) quite a bit lately, and the rear suspension is less plush than I would expect.
My other full susp bike is a 5 spot, so I was wondering if it's just a function of having less travel, or if the design is inherently less plush.
Thinking maybe about getting the RP23 pushed... Anyone done this, or any other thoughts?
Try a high volume air sleeve from PUSH before you get it re-valved or do anything else drastic. The Titus Mac strut design does have less leverage than a Spot rocker design, so you'll generally run lower air pressure with a Titus design anyway.
