I was experimenting with different shocks on my 2002 RFX. I took the Fox Float RP23 from my Spot and put it on the RFX. The bike immediately felt a lot lighter and nimble with that shock. It should, because the Fox Van R that came with the RFX weighs 765g, while the RP23 weighs 280g, almost 0.5 Kg difference. Somehow this can really be felt.
But anyways, the RFX rides well with the RP23 but I have to put the propedal on max for it to stop bobbing. How specific is the RP23 tuned to the 5Spot chassis? I really like the feel of the RP23 on the RFX because it is more tunable for sag and such, but I would like to run lower propedal settings.
