    DVO Topaz T3 on a LS v3?

    My new LS frame is showing up today. Going to ride a bit with the stock shock, but I've read of several people running the DPX2 on it and liking it.

    Anyone try a DVO Topaz T3 on a LS?

    DVO is a no-go for the Ripley. Id attempted to convince them for years to build a rear shock without any luck. Theyve built a couple but they had reliability issues so it was never sold to the general public

    I think he means not making a 188x44.

    Has anyone gone to the effort of trying to fit the 165x45 trunnion mount shock? You'd have make up a new yoke though. I've seen a cheap shock come up on the 2nd hand market and considering it...

    Did you end up giving this a shot? I'd really like to have a Topaz on my v3.
