    if I had to choose, I'd take the DHX coil over the air any day. I've only had bad experience with thE DHX Airs, but they mave have improved it in recent years.

    If you want an air shock for the Terremoto, get the RP23 with standard air sleeve.

    I have a CCDB and RP23 on my Terremoto and the RP23 is good for XC type rides, but I wouldn't do anything too crazy on it. The CCDB is the best shock I've ever owned, hands down.

    SAme here I own a DHX5 and a RP23. But between DHXA and DHX5, I'd go with the coil.

    Good God, you truly are awakening my UGI with your frequent mentioning of the CDDB!

    I would check to see if you can take a credit on the frame without a shock and just buy a CCDB or get it with a RP23 and buy a CCDB. Or take the Fox Coil then send it to PUSH.

    That's just my opinion. The only experience I have with coils are with Romic. But when the time comes for me to run a coil.....it will be a CCDB

    DHX-coil.

    RP23 will work if you aren't doing excessively long downhills with lots of repetitive quick hits - in which case RP23 can overheat and start to pack up.

    DHX-air is finicky and I'm not a fan.

    Push'd DHX Coil or CCDB (if you like to play with the settings).

    I have a Push'd RP23, and I'm not a fan of air shocks anymore--so I'll be selling it.

    Stay away from the DHX Air. Not worth it. Good idea, bad implementation.
