    Is that a 6-pack, or a 5-spot? If 6, why not the DHX? Great shot. How's that Z-1 treating you? I just sold my 36, and ordered an 05 Z-1 for my Heckler.

    Neither, it's an RFX. I unfortunately can't run the DHX on my frame as the schrader valve on the shock will apparently hit my downtube under full bottoming. I've ridden a few bikes with DHX shocks, I want one. They are the goods. Too bad I couldn't get one with a remote resi as found on the new DHR frames.

    The Z1 is just great. Best feeling Bomber I've ever owned and a near perfect match for the RFX. I'm sure you'll dig yours too.
    What didn't you like about the Fox36?

    The AVY works for the RFX just as well as the new Z1.

    Nice pic, here's a shot of the Avy fit on my small RFX and a so-so shot from my back-yard short course.

    Alright homies, here's what's up. My first impression of the 36 was that I was impressed with the stiffness, and low speed compression traits, but after riding porcupine rim in Moab last month, I realized that buying the Fox 36 was a mistake for me. The fork is just down right harsh on extended downhill sections. Another thing I didn't like was the fact that depending on the trail I'd be riding, I would have to always be tweaking the air pressure to make sure I didn't bottom it out. For regular trail riding, with small drops, I'd run about 80psi. For drops over 4 feet, I'd have to bump it up to 110psi, but the fork would be super harsh on the small stuff. Also, the fork has lost about a half inch of it's total travel now, and there is no way to get it back. Long story short, this fork is all hype, and Fox needs to get back to the drawing board. If I were you, and were thinking about getting one, I'd wait until the coil version comes out. My final gripe about the fork is that the HS compression adjustment is very linear. If you bump it up to help with bottomout, the total stroke becomes very harsh. Luckily I was able to sell it for what I paid for it, and the new Z-1 will be her at the end of the week. I was the guinea pig.
