    Paid SPAM: BOS Stoy

    Here's your chance to get a BOS Stoy rear shock on the cheap! Only ridden on our local trails 3 times and then was used for dyno evaluation tests. Shock has been rebuilt with a fresh oil change and has cosmetic damage to the reservoir decal from clamping it in the soft jaws.

    So what did you learn? Does all that money buy any magic that my MX tuned DHX is lacking?
    Keep the Country country.

    If you already have an MX-Tuned FOX you're all set.

    We buy and test everything so that we know what everyone is building.

    Im thinking of doing a factory tune on my fox van r shock. Is it worth the extra $75 over the factory rebuild? what kind of performance changes are we talking about? Do you guys ship back to canada if I ship it to you?

    Biggest thing you'll notice is less spiking on fast, sharp hits. Better bottoming resistance too. If you want the ability to adjust HSC/LSC independently get the MX tune.
    Keep the Country country.

    What bike was it on or which of BOS's 5 tunes is this one? What is the condition of the needle bearings/hardware? Does it have a spring included and what weight?

    It was purchased and setup for a Generation 1 Nomad. Not sure of the tune, but it is setup for a higher leverage design. It didn't come with the needle bearings as the bolt diameter was too big. No spring, but any standard Manitou rear spring will fit. I can help with the spring.

    Uh oh for BOS, I guess. Guess the industry should patent their designs better.

    you do know this is common practice to do ?

    there is no patent law that stops a competing company from buying and testing the competition.

    it gets illegal when they reverse engineer it and copy it

    Yes, it is.

    We purchase, or get, nearly every suspension component in the marketplace through our door so that we have an intimate working knowledge of all of the systems and their functionality. We do it as an important part of our R&D process as any good company would do.

    If that's cheap than these things must be crazy expensive full retail.
    I believe the shock sells for $985 without a spring.

    What makes you think they did not patent them well enough?

    If you are buying that for the ION,i think its the wrong size.Think you need a 222mm x70mm,
    8.75x2.75

    is there big difference between 8.5 and 8.75?in mm there are only 7 mm.
    and between 2,75 and 3? the same...
    I've seen a few Ion's with Stoy rear shocks...so i think they work pretty well.
    Sam, I'm curios if this shock will fit ok in my Ion... considerring those differences.

    The Bos advertised is a 2.5 so its 63mm stroke,this will reduce the travel,you might be able to move the front carriage down to allow for the different shock length.
