Hello there anyone riding with fox x2 shock??

I had one on my 2016. Was a good shock and gave a lot of bottom out support which that linkage desperately needed. Works well with the demo.

For those who switched from the ohlins to a DHX2... what specific hardware is needed to mount it properly? Does the shock come with anything for mounting? Do I need to keep anything from my ohlins to use on the new dhx?

is the 2017 demo upper shock mounting hardware 8mm x 21.8mm? I don't have an accurate enough measuring device to be confident enough to buy a set without confirmation. lol

I measured it at 8 x 22.1 so that's probably the official measurements and my calipers are rubbish Smile

Loving your bike. Can you tell me about your single speed setup. I really only use maybe 2 gears at Whistler and coast grav.

Yay! Finally acquired the progressive link! Quite difficult to get one in Australia, to say the least.

Interestingly all four bearings in the link that mount to the seat stays are all gritty and notchy!
Seems strange to be replacing bearings on a new part, but lucky its an easy spot to swap them.

Hm. That’s weird. Maybe pop them open and re grease them and save them for emergencies.

What do you have to pay for it? Or all others here? Just to compare Smile

Any part # on the progressive link?

I got it for ~140 USD, which I think is fair, considering it’s made from a single block of aluminium rather than the two piece one it replaces.
The part no. Is 98918-8900.
