change my float r to what?
So You want a new rear shock that has something like ProPedal and a lockout? Well just find the lenght of Your current shock and get another. Manitou was on offer at CRC not so long ago and their rear shocks are actually pretty good. SPV might be a pain to set up at first so consider different damping/platform options. You can get some second hand shocks as well. Rock Shox Monarch is a very good shock, I also had an Rock Shox MC shock on my Fuel Ex and could not complain, DT Swiss SSD would be a good choice, had that on a Scott before, fit and forget, easy to set up etc. Basically You can get a good second hand unit for around £100. You might need to change the mounting hardware but that is somewhere around £10-20.
I had a RS Sid on my old NRS and it did not even have rebound adjustment. Replaced it with a very nice X-fusion platform shock, very similar to RP3 and it made the NRS a much better riding bike.
Only issue with your STumpy might be the space for the shock going through the seat tube. My friend was looking for a new shock for her 07 Stumpy and the limited space meant she could only fit a RP23/Triad shock or other with a similarly slim air can.Posted 6 years ago
Cheers for that meiszko, I spoke to TFTuned and they said I cant upgrade my Float R
Sadly,there’s no such an upgrade for your float r.
The only mod which we can make is to PUSH tune it, which involves revalving the shock to make it more stable and plusher, but you’ll still only have rebound adjustment.
Really, the only way to get what you want would be to upgraqde to an rp23, but they’re pretty spendy at £379.
So yes looks like a replacement is in order, not being a numpty (well, am actually) but how do you work out your shock length? 🙂Posted 6 years ago
