I know DH is dead apparently however I'm sure some of you lot on here are thus zombies and still ride it and I've seen mention of at least one of you owning a Socom, though it might have just been for sale in the classifieds however I digress.
So I'm out in WA (Oz) its hot and pretty flat. My V10 is back in the UK and I'm still waiting for Fox to warranty repair my shoddy 2013 34 CTD (Don't buy them, just don't) on my Nomad.
Bought a cheap '10 Socom off ebay to keep me going in the interim, it's coming with some '09 boxxer race, cheap and cheerful and 32mm etc etc...
Been offered some NOS '08 Totem solo airs (were these the ones that always broke?) which I'm considering swapping the boxxers out for or possibly some Fox 36 Van 180's (however they are 2013's so Im wary - are the '13 36 RC2 as bad as the CTD stuff?).
What's the consensus on a Socom with single crowns on? Guessing weight wise the Boxxer race and Totems of that era are a similar weight.
Tracks here are not particularly steep at all, more like rough flowy single track style etc so it doesn't need to be super slack / loads of travel, I ride most of it on my Nomad to be honest.
P.s. Yes I know it's an Intense and I know its going to crack on the chain stays / implode and I said I'd never buy one but it was about 600gbp for the full bike and its 8" and VPP so it'l do until I get my forks back / am reunited with my V10.
