- swithering between fox and shox
I personally don’t buy the fox fragility; all of mine have been fine even in the Peaks which ate pretty gritty. I’m still running a pair of 2005 36 Van RC2’s, still on their original stanchions with no wear.
However, I personally don’t like the CTD stuff from Fox. It’s the first time that I’ve really got or understood journo complaints. The set up that I rode was very dicey and had no support in the mid stroke to blew through its travel.Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
My understanding is that the fine tune dial is for the trail setting only and basically dictates how much of a platform there is. The 2014 CTD stuff has been revised by Fox after it was given a fair few bad write ups and isssupposedly much better now according to Pink Bike. I still don’t like the idea and would much rather have control over the compression damping.
The CTD damping is what will make me ditch Fox when I get found to replacing the 36’s. I’ll end up with some Lyriks or 55’s next. They’re both eaiser to service than my first ten RC2 cartridge.
The current CTD stuff can be sorted out by adding extra oil but I still think it is fundamentally flawed, but then again I don’t use lock out or wind down and leave my suspension at a setting that I’m happy with.Posted 4 years ago
still ruminating on a replacement bike and pretty much boiled it down to two packages, which with everything else considered and balanced leaves a choice that swings around two shock packages

I’m not really a follower of fork fashions, and only have experience of Rockshox ownership (a recon / monarch combo and only had the monarch for a couple of rides) I read a lot of critism of fox fragility. Is one pairing going to make me happier in the saddle, is one going to make me happier in the wallet in the long run?Posted 4 years ago
