    PUSH'd Vanilla RC VS Roco WC

    Anybody have experience riding with a PUSH'd Vanilla RC and a Marzocchi Roco WC? I'm trying to decide if I want to spend 200+ dollars getting my shock PUSH'd on my DH bike or just spend the extra 150.00 and get the Roco. I have a PUSH'd RC on my other bike and it is sweet but I have not ridden a bike with a WC to be able to compare.

    i would have up-graded to the Roco, but the shock was to big for the straight 8 frame. i ended up getting the Vanilla rebuilt by push....

    I've had vanilla rc's, a Pushed vanilla rc, a roco wc, and now a pushed roco wc, all on the same bike. In my opinion, a stock roco wc is a better shock than a Pushed vanilla rc. Even though the factory race system for the RC is a nice upgrade over stock, the roco is a larger volume shock. It just feels nice and plush.

    You would be wise to buy the roco, and, later, when you can afford it, get it Pushed.

    That sounds like a good plan. Plus the old Vanilla springs are getting harder to find especially in titanium ever since they switched to the DHX and Van R. The last one I had to order direct from Fox.
