    Air vs Coil

    Have a 06 Marin AL7 with a dhx air 5.0. Anyone have any advice how switching to a coil shock may feel/perform? I sometimes feel like im not getting the claimed 6.8 inches of rear travel on that bike. Ive played with the pressure and setting , but cant seem to dial it in, any advice?? thx

    Should be easy to see if you get full travel on an air shock w/ an o-ring on the shock shaft. Coil would be a big improvement compared to a DHX Air for most applications.
