    Coil Shock on DW Spot?

    Anyone tried a coil shock on a DW Spot? Am loving the bike, and think it's so good I've just sold my 6-Pack frameset, so was wondering for the few times I want a bike that's more downhill orientated, what it would ride like with a coil shock?

    PS I know the frame was designed around the RP23 so theoretically it should be the best fit for the frame but interested in others thoughts re: coils.

    it'll ride plusher, best with a bit more sag and increased LSC.
    it may suffer a wee bit on the climbs due to increased sag, but will reward on the downs.
    air shocks are good, but cannot offer the same rebound and mid-stroke control of a coil.
    also, bear in mind there are good coils (CCDB / AVY) and bad (add your most hated coil shock here)

    If you look in the stickies, there is a coil Spot thread.
