- My New Tracer
I went for a Bos stoy which I had converted and is now fitted to the SS. I would go for a Cane Creek this time around. Cheaper and apparently better and comes in the right size. At the time I bought the Stoy there was no support for the CCDB in the UK should things go wrong.
The problem with the RP23 is that it blows through it's travel at the sign of a twig in the trail so bottoms out constantly despite putting the correct amount of air in. It also behaves in an interesting manner when braking over rough ground. IMHO it just doesn't suit the Tracer.
If I were you though just see how you get on with it before you splash more cash. These things are not cheap.Posted 7 years agoundapressureMember
Agreed, a CCDB totally changes the feel of the bike, makes it a much plusher and more involving ride. There were some problems with cracking to the rear triangles, I think something like the CCDB might get around this problem as it rarely bottoms out and if it does, is less harsh than the RP23.Posted 7 years agocraig1975Member
Another shock to seriously consider is the Manituo ISX6 intrinsic, I ditched the rp23.. I had the same bottom out issues.. and to stop it bottoming out I ended up running it too stiff.. I opted for the Manituo ISX6.. has to be the intrinsic version though.. this shock blows the rp23 out the water.. the bike feels much more plusher and defo feels a lot more active in rocky sections.. took me a while to get used to a shock that worked properly..
do a look about.. and you'll find a lot of people with good things to say about this shock
