Since I replaced the Romic on my 5 Spot with an RP3 I've liked the "sportier" feel the shock gives the bike along with the loss of about 1lb weight. With the RP3 the bike handled the big hits just as well however small bump response was disappointing. It felt like the shock had too much slow speed compression damping. As I had the back of the bike in bits to clean and regrease the bushings I decided the time had come to let TF Tuned Shox service the RP3 and install the PUSH mod at the same time. Just had my first ride on the shock and it feels like a completely different shock. The Turner magic carpet ride has returned with everything from pebbles to rocks disappearing under the suspension. The rebound also seems to be more controlled. I'm still not using the propedal/platform settings as the 5 Spot doesn't seem to need it, at least with my riding style. If any of you guys are thinking about getting your RP3 PUSHed stop thinking and do it. If you are UK based Tim Flooks is the man- highly recommended.
