New Rear Shock for my Pitch
I’ve got Pitch comp and it’s got the OE X-Fusion shock on there, comes with Rebound and thats it.
It leaks a bit of air over time, and recently at the back of my mind there’s been an idea to change it.
I’m wondering what people on here would suggest, is it worth fitting a coil shock or summit like a DHX Air one, or shoudl I just stick with summit like a RP2 or RP23?Posted 9 years agogeetee1972Member
I’ve seen a lot of reports that say the DHX Air is not as good as the more conventional RP/RP23 etc. The latter is lighter, less complicated (less to go wrong)cheaper and the damping performs better.Posted 9 years ago
Having said that I’ve got a DHX Air on my Spesh Enduro and it’s been more or less fine.
Coil currently outperforms air quite easily, but you have to ask if you want the extra performance versus the weight.
If you did go down the coil route, you have the usual suspects (Fox/Manitou/Marzocchi etc) but one that always gets overlooked, is easily as good as the competition and possibly quite a bit cheaper, is the Romic Twin Tube – you can get them from Stendec I think. Performance is excellent.chakapingSubscriber
Is your shock size 200mm eye to eye and 50mm stroke?
If so, I have a new unused Fox Float R shock with propedal that I need to get round selling.
Basic but light, plush and could be well matched to the Pitch’s neutral suspension system.

steve_b77, it’s showing up as 7.875×2.25"(200mmx57mm)on any sites i’ve looked at. Sorry for butting in, just wouldn’t want to see you buy the wrong size. Saying that, you have the bike so i may be wrong.Posted 9 years ago
I was considering buying the cheaper pitch myself and swapping all the kit from my current bike over to it and flogging the rest on ebay. That’s why i’ve been looking into the shock size, as my current shock could just be swapped over to the pitch if it’s 200×57.
