    Salsa Spearfish Suspension Upgrade

    I have a Spearfish w/DW split-pivot design, with the stock Fox CTD shock and Float 32 fork. I'm looking to upgrade these components, any suggestions?

    i have very limited experience with the Fox 32 fork, have an older F29. not sure how similar they are. i run a RockShox XX SID on my fish, it is eons better than the F29.


    buddy has a carbon Leftie on his fish, its pretty amazing as well

    I had a 2016 Fox 32 and DPS rear shock on my Splitpivot Spearfish last month for a couple rides before my frame cracked. This combo was a significantly better than the stock fork and shock. The damping on the fork allows it to ride a bit higher in the travel but still utilize the full 100mm. I'm selling the fork and shock as I'm swapping to a different frame. PM me if you are interested.

    Appreciate it; RockShox was recommended to me by several people as a replacement

    Wow - cracked? Is that unusual for a carbon Spearfish?

    Its not a spearfish, but I upgraded to a DB Inline and Pike on my Horsetheif. I didn't think it could get much better, until the upgrades. I would imagine you could upfork the spearfish to 120, but I guess it depends on what you want to get out of the bike . . .

    The 2016 Fox stuff is supposed to be really good as well. They seemed to have caught up with RS after all these years

    I had the aluminum version. I have not personally heard of alot of issues with either frame.
