    Rock Shox tuning?

    I have a couple year old SID on one of my Czar that I want up-fitted/custom tuned, but PUSH and Avy don't work on the RS/shorter forks... Ideas?

    About 5 years ago I had an older Rockshox fork done by Hippie Tech Suspension out of Colorado

    It's probably best to get a Fox Float and send it to Push, I'm sure they could tune it similar. If I was sending my Float 32 to Push I'd ask for firm low-speed with soft transition to high speed, the firm low-speed support on the custom stuff is just amazing. I'd be confident with Push because I know they know their way around fox and how to gut it and use their own stuff, vs. someone that may rearrange a shim or two on a SID Charger and not get an end-result anywhere near as good.

    Best option IMO for custom tuned on both ends in the short-travel realm.

    Reading the Hippietech reviews is entertaining and if anyone hasn't, I highly suggest you do it. I think I even used him for some stuff back when I worked in a shop (for a customer). It was sketch-city.

    IMO, for custom tuning, you either need one hell of a reputation, a very specific and detailed walk-through of what is replaced and what's it's replaced with, or both. It's usually a lot of money and I wouldn't want to dump it on a marginal improvement, and it's hard to know just what they did unless they are up front.

    I don't wanna Fox, I have a structurally perfect SID WC for my race bike. It is notably stiffer than a new 100 SC. But lighter than others at 120mm , plus I own it. I have ridden the RS-1 and Fox 32 SC and their action is way better but I don't wanna new front wheel, or the limited travel and flex. Anddd, PUSH don't do RS anymore.. so will be sending it to Suspension Experts in Asheville.
