    What REAR shock should I buy for heavy rider!?

    I am placing my post here, because DH is heavy duty!

    Myself I dont ride downhill, but my weight is 375lbs and I am wondering what shock should I buy?

    I found a Fox DHX 3.0 for decent, Chain Reaction Cycle has a few for $120,

    Fox Suspension Van Scott Voltage FR20 Rear Shock 2016


    Fox Suspension Float K CTD Trek Rear Shock 2014

    I do have enough room to double up the shock, weld in a mount side by side.

    TBH the stock shock on department store bike, I bottomed out on ALL THE TIME, lasted for a year. Just want something for potholes and curbs, riding fast!

    Any reason you’re asking here? Doesn’t look like a DH bike. Have you tried the Clydesdale forum?

    You already posted this on the general discussion forum, and that doesn’t look like a DH bike.

    whatever you do....don't buy an air shock...buy a coil shock


    tbh......buy a better bike first and then get a way heavier spring
