    Resurrecting Racer X Ti, need some shock suggestions both ends!

    Hi all,
    I'm resurrecting a Racer X Ti and need to get a rear shock, new fork, etc..
    I searched on the build database, but I can't find what I'm looking for.

    From what I can tell, I need a 7.875" x 2.0" rear shock, what tune? Is Pro Pedal desirable with this frame? Can a 2.25" travel shock fit in the frame without the linkage binding?
    So since a new rear shock, I'll need a fork to match up well.

    Any other things to watch out for? It's a 1 1/8" headset, working to get the main pivot bearings out of it, getting the seat post out was FUN!

    I got a response from Titus usa re: rear shock, their reco is a Fox CTD Kashima, or if I went RP23, "L" on "leverage" (their terminology), "L" or "M" on rebound.

    If I go CTD, which fork would pair well with it? Also worth upgrading to a larger format front axle 15mm or 20mm? I have a set of Crossmax wheels with a std. 9mm QR.

    I won't be racing or hucking this thing off cliffs or anything, just rolling XC and a little fun in the NC mtns occasionally.

    OK, guess I'll answer myself.

    Scored a RP23/Push rear shock, setup for my weight, good fork to complement this?
    Searching the board is brutal, a MILLION hits, even restricted to this forum! Help?!

    I run a Pike with all Black Box internals on a Ti Motolite with an RP23. For the X I'd say go with a Reba for sure.
