    Anybody sporting a Chubie?

    Who, if anybody, is using an avalanche chubie on their MoFo? Best shock I ever had as its idiot proof (ie, Fo Proof) in terms of set it an forget it....and it aint too common which is cool.

    What shocks work? Obviously the Fox, and I know the Ghey Creek Double Barrel, and I hear not the Roco, but what about an Avalanche? I would have LOVED to have moved the Avalanche over from the GheyFX but it wouldnt fit the Moto as the Moto utilizes a bigger Chubie of course

    Thanks in advance, b!tches

    Yes I'm sporting a chubie

    But lately I've been riding a lot trying to get rid of it.

    I knew once there was a post talking about Chubies you would be the first to reply

    So dude, you are an insider, yay or nay on the Chubie/MoFo combo?

    You are talking to a guy who runs a Fox Float R.

    In my mind they could all be better. Frame makers have taken rear suspension to it's limits. Now it's time for shock makers to step up with better dampers.

    If you find out if the Chubie will work (ie, reservoir not hit downtube like Rocco) that would be great....anyone?

    I haven't been told to move anything because of a Chubie. But that doesn't mean that it fits. Call me on Monday. I don't work weekends.

    the chubbie should fit fine. i'm still bummed that the dhs did not fit my old bruja. oh well, figures that it has sat on my shelf for over a year now... the reservoir on the chubbie is smaller than the ccdb.

    it does make sense that it would fit but boy what an expensive experiment if it doesnt. I would love to hear from Sherwizzle to make sure

    It should fit fine if you want an inferior shock to the CCDB...for a man who doesn't care what people think, you sure do worry about parts that you think are ghey or not....

    This thread is completely pointless anyway...you could put a block of wood in between the rocker and frame and get the same performance...you don't ride!

    BUT! all that aside...I have seen the Avy and DB next to each other...and the Avy will fit.

    But come on Fo....Man up!

    UGI hits the hardest when you can't ride. Sorry to hear that...heal up quick and get some new parts in the process.

    Man I hope you don't have the flu that I had a couple of weeks ago! That sucked big time, I was unable to eat for 7 days (yea weight loss!!) and still have a bit of a cough from it.

    I'm just now getting time in on my El Rey and loving it. Too bad the trails have been wet and muddy from all the rains, they should be drying out this week I'd guess. It's a pity to be zooming along with the new bike and then have to stop and carry it across the mud (don't want to be destroying the trail) just when I was getting the flow going. Did get a good 1900' fireroad climb in as well, very very nice indeed having the Rey just tootle along at my pace, my old bike seemed to be trying to drag me back downhill compared to this.

    Good luck in getting back on the trails soon with or without a chub(b)ie.
