    abajo rear shock?

    has anyone swapped out the rear shock on their abajo to something more plush or even a coil?

    looking for thoughts

    What all are you looking to accomplish? Just a more plush ride? Have you tried adjusting air pressure and or volume spacers? How much do you weigh?

    I would say calling Fezzari should give you an answer on the coil. They will be able to tell you if the leverage curve can accommodate a coil shock.

    If you've adjusted air pressure and volume spacers and still can't get it to feel right then a different shock may help. The Cascade Peak is the same frame with better components. You could try the Fox DPS that it uses. If you're a heavier rider like myself, about 220, the smaller volume shocks can be tricky. After putting enough air in them to get sag dialed they can become stiff and overly progressive.

    Be careful though, this is where I find myself pricing components and end up finding myself down a rabbit hole lol. Shocks can get expensive and often have certain tunes for different bikes. It usually ends in me getting a different bike. Like I was having similar thoughts chasing the idea of different suspension on my Giant Trance. I ended up selling it and getting a La Sal Peak instead. Money well spent in the end.

    @Lawnbike, here is the shock size on my Cascade Peak, which should be the exact same since the bike is nearly identical: 7.25" (eye to eye) x1.75" (stroke) or 184mmx44mm
