I am on the market for a trail/am bike and I can across the vitus escarpe vrx 29. it seems from a review that the piggy back of the dpx2 shock may bang on the bottle as the cage is located too close to the radius of motion of the suspension.
Any one else experiencing this issue?
Thanks

Yeh a piggy back will hit the bottle, not the cage itself and push it forward a bit, meaning it can jump out of the cage on rough sections. I’ve put a super deluxe coil on mine (had to file out the bit of the frame it goes through as it’s fatter than an air shock, bye bye warranty.... rides amazing though!).

The smallest woolftooth b-rad plate would sort it. Allows you to move the cage forward a bit. I just got a narrow strip of aluminium plate, drilled it for the bottle cage bolts, then drilled and tapped 2 m4 holes 20mm further forward & screwed the cage into them. Works a treat.
