    Scratch Air 9... Am i crazy?


    I own a scratch air 9 and love it, the only thing i'm not 100% on is the rear shock.
    Its hard to explain but it doesn't always feel as active as i would like and i struggle to get the sag right when matching it to a nice ride. Anyway...

    Would i be mad to consider putting a coil in the bike? Something like a CCDB if it fits?

    I ride a 8 fr with the coil and it rides pretty good. I am not sure where you live but if you are any where near Mass you are welcome to come try mine if it would help or hopefully some one in your area might have one for you to try. Good luck on your choice.

    I have a Scratch 7 with a DHX 4.0 coil and it rides great, no 'dead' area in the mid-stroke. I've been wishing lately that I had a RP23 on the back but if the performance hit is noticeable... maybe not then?

    Try replacing your do you lower du bushing with a needle bearing kit from real world cycling.
