- Any oppinions on Fox Van RC rear shocks??
Emmodd, Mojo offer a custom tune a Van RC for you, well they used to, can’t find any info on their site about it now.
TF Tuned tune them using the PUSH industries kits.
Loco offers a custom tune too (off hand during servicing), so might be worth giving him a ring, someone mentioned he did them a good deal on a Van RC the other day.

Had mine on an orange 5 for a couple of months now. Below are my comments posted a few days after fitting it…
For anyone thinking of getting one, here’s my first observations…
Climbing: With a couple of low speed compression clicks, the bike doesn’t bob any worse than the RP23 so climbing is fine.
General Singletrack riding: No real noticeable difference.
Freeride/fast descents etc: Massive improvement. Back wheel now firmly planted on the ground rather than the ‘skippy’ back end I was used to. Rear braking is therefore much improved with better control of speed. I can ‘feel’ the back end of the bike much better. Landing off jumps is sooo plush and predictable.
So then, all positive. There is a weight penalty but I’m not sure I noticed it when in the saddle.Posted 6 years agoKryton57Subscriber
+1 for dorkings latter comments almost exactly – except I’m Vpp so I don’t have any percievable bob ob climbing.
I’m aslmost exclusively singletrack and have had TfT Push the shock to accomodate, so his “Freeride” para onwards applies to singletrack and trailcentre riding in the way he describes.
FWIW without jumping I never notice the wheel NOT track the ground.Posted 6 years ago
