    El ciclon coil or air?

    Thinking of getting a coil shock for my el ciclon (the path) edition as a shock for days when I am doing shuttles or really long descents. What are people experiences out there with different coil shock options on this frame?

    I prefer coil, but air is lighter. My new Ciclon isn't here, so I won't be able to give you an opinion for a while.

    If you can have two shocks, do it. I have a DHX coil I'll try on my Ciclon, but that'll be after I get the bike (not expected for a while) and get my leg better. I'm going to try it with air first though.

    I rode air and coil on my X-5 though. I prefer the feel of coil on the 5"+ travel bikes, air on the 4" inch bike (El Salt).

    Love my Coil on the El Ciclon Path Ed. Wouldn't have it any other way. I'm guessing the DHX is adding 1lb. Goes great with the Pike up front.
