    Which rear shock on Salsa Caballero, Fox, 5th element, Rock Shox etc?

    I have a Salsa Caballero with the 03 Rock Shox Sid shock. I dont think much of it and dont find it particuarly plush, don't know if I havent set it up correctly, or if it just a piece of whatever....

    Anyway, I have a Manitou Platinum Scareb fork and am wondering what the best rear shock would be and why. I weigh about 166lb and ride/race XC.

    If you think the rock shox is good enough, what pressure should I set them + and - to?

    Thanks
