    Cool-blue Rhythm Any benefit for a Sugar Plus using platform rear shock?

    Looking to upgrade the rear shock to a Pushed Float or a Mantitou Swinger 3 way. Has anyone added a platform rear shock to their Sugar Plus? Was there a benefit? Any dislikes?
    Thanks

    In my opinion, as an owner of two Sugar+ bikes, both with Float R shocks, is that this particular single pivot design does not need a platform (SPV) shock. I never feel like I'm bobbing down the trail and never feel like I need a lockout. Talk to the guys at Push, tell them what you're trying to achieve and see if their dialing in your shock would work for you.

    I've also got a Turner Burner that has a 3-way shock. That 4-bar linkage is so leveraged that having an SPV chamber seems to help with any bobbage from pedal input and works just fine overall, but that linkage and your single pivot couldn't be more different.
