Thanks Tommy-P87, I’m looking at TFTuned or Jtech indeed to get the initial setup/tuning help by an expert. Also because I’m about 185lbs geared up and that gets me in between 500 and 550 spring rate.
Here in Holland the trails are very pedal heavy because we only have hills and no mountains, so it cannot be too plush but I also ride a bit of park across the boarder.

Hi All,

This is my first time posting and I almost read this entire thread before doing so.

I have a Jeffsy Blaze and would like to upgrade to a coil shock. I read that many already switched to a coil shock and everyone that did loves it and besides that I think it looks absolutely great on the Jeffsy!

The Blaze comes with the red Lyrik so my first thought was to go for the RS super deluxe ultimate with the matching red coil but I don’t see anyone choose this shock? Is it not a good shock? Should I choose another shock and forget about the matching red coil?

I never had a coil shock so any tips and advise is appreciated.

I've been running an Ohlins TTX22 on my Jeffsy and have really liked it a lot, I'd definitely recommend trying out a coil if you're curious. We weigh the same and I tried a 550lbs spring before settling on a 500lbs. The calculator had me at 512lbs and I ended up liking the slightly plusher ride and then adding a little bit of LSC to keep it pedalling nicely.

Due to a frame swap I'm going to be selling it again a few weeks from now with both the 500 and 550lbs springs so let me know if you're interested and don't mind waiting. Here's a photo

First of all, thank you for reading about the topic before posting. I had a RD Delux coil shock on my previous Capra and loved it. No climb switch and minimal adjustments but that could be a good thing for a first time coil rider. I now run the Cane Creek Inline coil on my Jeffsy and it has a climb switch and all of the adjustments. Takes a while to get set up but I'm now in love with it. My personal preference is to keep the suspension components matching and I think the RS Delux with red spring would be a killer match.
Good job wanting to go with a coil shock, these bikes really should come spec.'d with them.

Does anyone here have experience with the new Fox Float X yet?

I've got a Core 2 coming next month and it looks like they're shipping with Float X's instead of DPX2's now. My rider weight is around 250-260 so having the ability to run a lower pressure vs. the DPX2 seems ideal.
