    Romic on XCE with Fox 1.75

    Looking at a used XCE with Fox shock, stroke 1.75. What happens if a Romic with 1.5 inch stroke is put on bike - work OK? Thanks.

    You lose 1/2" of travel...

    That's why the Burner has 3.5 inches of travel; It has a 1.5" stroke shock, w/ the same rockers as the 1.75 vanilla XCE.

    Other than losing a bit of travel there are no issues w/ it as long as the romic has the same eye-to-eye measurement as the Fox.

    Why put a Romic on it? Buy the XCE and get the Fox Push'd. It will perform much better than a Romic.

    That would be the plan, but would like to know Romic could work as a backup, or be used while Fox is being Push'd. Thanks

    Ya, what MightySchmoePong said. This is why Turner created the X-R rockers, to allow you to run a 1.5 stroke shock and still achieve 4" of travel. As far as finding a used XCE just keep your eyes glued on the MTBR Classified and Ebay. I made it a daily habit to scan the "Latest Ads Posted" page of the Classifieds and search "Turner" in the Cycling portion of Ebay, and it eventually paid off as I was able to buy a mint condition XCE with the 1.5 stroke Romic and the X-R rockers for less than the Supergo Burners. Just out of curiosity why not a Burner, it's essentially the same thing?

    Actually, first choice is an 02 but those just don't seem to turn up often. Burner/XCE, either one would be fine, just that currently there is an XCE available.

    What size frame are you looking for? As far as loosing <1/2" with a Romic on the stock rockers, many have reported that they didn't notice the difference when switching from the 1.75 stroke Vanilla, and if you're looking for an O2 it's only got 3" anyway so if the XCE is clean hop on it.
