- Back to coil
There’s this too – not progressive but adjustable rate:Posted 1 month agoqtipMember
If your bikes linkage design is linear, a progressive spring will ramp up as it goes through travel so it doesn’t bottom out all the time
I get that. I just don’t see why that is better than an air shock which is naturally progressive (and can be tuned to be more/less progressive to some degree).Posted 1 month agohonourablegeorgeMember

It just allows a coil shock to be used on a bike that’s designed for a progressive shock, if you used a normal coil on the same bike you’d bottom out too much.
Coils are less tunable, and heavier, but if they’re set up right for your weight, and work with your bike, then they perform better in almost every wayPosted 1 month agoandyrmMember
Coil front and rear on my Stumpy Evo and honestly couldn’t go back now. Rode a friend’s Stumpy Evo back to back with mine a couple of weeks ago, he’s still on the standard Fox air both ends and it’s nowhere near as stable or composed feeling. Thing I notice most is the speed of response to small stutter bumps, roots etc.Posted 1 month ago
