    Opinions on Fox 36 float FIT RC2 160 in 5spot '10

    Hi guys,

    I would like to hear your opinions on the Fox 36 float FIT RC2 160in a '10 5spot. The spot will mainly be used on not too technical terrain and hardly any steep climbs or descents. Every year I will take it to the Alps for a few rides. but mostly almost flat terrain in the Netherlands.

    Does the AC height fit the spot or not?

    thx

    Aside from the fact that it's a Fox and you could do better, the a2c won't be an issue.

    i found my 09, similar to the 10, a much better riding bike with my float set at 150mm. front end planted not wondering on climbs and great at speed and going down.

    I've been using a 36 float since an 09 spot, now on a 11 spot with an external lower cup. I love it. I've tried a couple of other spots, also in large but with a 140-150 fork and both of these felt steep and I was disappointed by the ride.

    I liked my 2010 with my van 36, but didnt like it on my 2011. That fork is not on a bike at the moment...

    fork

    I've ridden fox for almost a decade...
    now I'm a white brothers guys hands down...
    no looking back...
    no wallowing
    no brake dive
    smoother and plusher on the small and medium hits
    and bottomless on the big hits...
