    Who's going to be First

    To bolt one of these up to a Turner??

    Evolver ISX-6






    <LI class=groupBullets>Piggy-back reservoir with Intrinsic-Adjust damping system: ideal for AM/FR/DH applications <LI class=groupBullets>3-D forged and CNC machined: 40x49mm twin-tube air canister with a 12mm aluminum, internal damper shaft and MCU negative spring 6 Independent, external settings for custom tuning: rebound damping, high/low-speed compression damping, Intrinsic pressure, No-Tools air volume/preload for bottom-out, and air-spring preload adjustability.


    Swinger SFS X6




    <LI class=groupBullets>Piggy-back reservoir with (SFS) shim-stack Intrinsic damping: ideal for AM/FR/DH applications <LI class=groupBullets>4 Independent, external settings for custom tuning: rebound damping, high/low-speed compression damping, SFS air pressure, (no tool) SFS air volume/preload, and spring preload adjustability <LI class=groupBullets>Large oil capacity, low-pressure air assist, and MCU bottom-out


    Both come in a 7.5x2 - but will they fit in the frame?

    They sure look cool, but so do Manitou forks, and they mostly blow. Maybe they've got it right this year. I'd personally wait until Hayes really takes control of the product development. Hopefully they can do for Manitou what SRAM did for Rock Shox.

    In some cases that's a good thing, in others, probably not so.

    From my point of view they put out an expensive product (Lyric in my case) but didn't put enough effort in QC resulting in reliability issues. They're starting to smell like manipoo at this moment. I have to, however, complement RS on their new Mission Control damper as it is sweeet, if only they can fix their QC mishaps.

    That said, SSinGa, I think you should go first this time. I'm done doing beta testing on high end shocks, for now, anyway.

    I'll go first, if, and only if DT offers them as an option on the Highline. I wouldn't dream of replacing the Push'd DHX on the RFX.

    No way, man! I've found the shock for me; at least on the Pack. As ElChi stated, I wouldn't dream of replacing my pDHX on my Pack.

    My Chubbie gives me a Woodie

    I liked my Romic too... then I tried the DHX... then I tried the Avalanche...I ain't never goin' back to a stock shock!

    I'm a proponent of feeling out the stock shock for an extended amount of time, then at rebuild time, doing what needs to be done to meet my needs.

    I am with JC - I was blown away by the stock DHX Coil on the RFX I just built up - the pushed RP3 pales into insignificance in comparison. Of course, your results may vary but I was well impressed.

    I actually think the RFX with DHX climbs better on the rocky tech stuff around here than the 5 spot and RP3 does. Granted it is slower to the top of a long climb but I cleaned stuff I hadn't cleaned before going up as well as down. I hope it isn't newbikeitis and I regress back to my prior self soon....we'll see.

    I found the same thing as you Wilks. It's not newbikeitis. I've had the DHX and RP3 for a couple of seasons, and rode them both on my Spot extensively. Of course, since you and I ride the same trails this should come as little suprise.

    JC I agree, ride that shock till it's time to rebuild and then get it Pushed. Just remember this conversation when you get it back... every time you ride it, you're gonna wish you had it months ago.

    Some MTBR member has a quote in his signature from a race-tech suspension person that says something to the effect of " the best you know is the best that you've ridden". You don't know if there is something better than what you've got till you try something else. It may turn out that what you've got is what you like, but....... I think I need more sleep, I'm starting to babble.

    Rene, you make perfect sense but for me it is cost justification - i.e are CK hubs twice as good as Hope and is a Chubbie 3 times as good as a stock DHX coil - I am scared to try some products in case i want them! Unfortuanltely I am not as they say independently wealthy....

    I agree 100%. Nothing really wrong with production shocks but once you go custom it's hard to go back.

    Wilks, I hear you. I'd love to try out a couple dozen different bikes on a long term basis, but checkbook reality says no. I much as I bust certain homer ballz about their avy and ccdb shocks allmost being as nice as my P-dhx, I'm doing just that, joking. I'm sure if I tried them, I'd like them too. So I'll stick to my modified shock, which I'm pleased with, untill circumstances change.

    I figure I'll send my DHX coil to push in a year or so, or maybe buy a chubibe or a CCDB from a homer when they buy something else and yesterdays shock goes in the classifieds!

    I have Romic on my Spot now, while I'm awaiting my new Van R. Yesterday was the first ride on a coil Spot. I liked it better than my previous DHX Air, I was surprised how good it felt. If it wasn't ugly red I would probably keep it! I can't wait till I get the new Van R, that should be sick.

    Keep that in mind the next time you ride with me then. Otherwise you'll be calling Craig from the parkinglot.
