    DRCV shock volume reducer DIY gettho

    If you keep bottoming your shock?
    If you want more progressive action?

    open your top camber and just tangle some zip ties just be careful of not blocking the pin path that pinches when you go further half way

    it works!

    Or you could spend $28 and buy Push Industries new DRCV volume reducer kit that's actually designed for that purpose...

    That must be a TON of zip ties. Those things don't take up that much volume...

    Does anyone have experience with the Push kit? Does it work as advertised?

    Wonderfully so. And I'm not just saying that because I've got an extra Push DRCV air volume spacer. But I do have this extra spacer if anyone is interested...

    Short answer - YES.

    Long answer - I was blowing through travel, and generally not impressed with the feel of the rear shock. Adding the PUSH spacer (10cc at first, now running the 7cc, but I may modify the 10cc to make it a 9 or so.) really made the rear feel much firmer and more controlled.

    Hi there,

    How many miles does it have on it? ;-)

    Wondering: What would it cost me, including shipping to the Netherlands?

    DRCV shock volume reducer DIY gettho

    I'll echo this. For me (a heavier rider for my height/frame size) the PUSH DRCV spacers gave better mid stroke support without sacrificing small compliance. I was able to run 25% sag and still have mid (and end) stroke support. Great kit, really

    Umm... none. I used the other spacer (the PUSH kit includes 2 spacers) and it was sold with the bike. The 2nd spacer is just sitting in my tool box.

    My apologies, but I have zero visibility of overseas shipping rates.

    Kind of off topic....for those of you who have ordered your kits through our new website, did it go smoothly?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Actually just 2 big zip ties I think 30 cm long. Will post pictures someday. I used one to clamp it to inside of the shock and the second so the first one doesn't get undone

    Yes but that's $35 plus shipping. So it would be around $50. I just wanted to try the theory of reducing the air volume with something.

    I was going to try grease or blue tag to reduce the air volume but then I saw the gaps on the top chamber and thought ZIP TIES

    It works!!!

    Sorry to the people making business out of the MTB hobby I don't have anything against them that's why I put ''gettho'' in the header. I am not trying to get business out of anyone. But I can sell you zip ties to reduce your DRCV shock for $9.99 including shipping

    Just kidding don't hate

    I got my kit today. I installed the 10cc spacer. What a difference. Now I just have to decide what to do with this fox evolution fork.

    You've got a few options that won't cost a ton of dough. First, you could take it to a shop or send it in to Fox to have a new FiT damper installed in place of the crappy Evolution unit. Second, if your Evo fork is still in decent nick, you could sell it online (here, PB, eBay) and buy a better fork to replace it. I've had good luck on eBay; figure ~$300 for a Performance series FiT and ~$400 for a Factory series, minus whatever you're able to get for your original Evo.

    I'd recommend holding out for a fork with the G2 (51mm) offset; they are out there, especially now that other manufacturers are adopting the same standard for their 29ers.
