I’m looking at buying a Fox DHX2 230 x 65mm. Will it fit my Nomad V4 with a 5mm spacer to turn it to 60mm? Are the spacers available? Thanks!(

A 230x65 shock will fit the Nomad both with and without our link. I'm not aware of the spacers being readily available, but all it is is a plastic washer under the bottom out bumper so finding something that works should be easy. That said I'd say just spring it as if you're riding a 230x60 shock and don't worry about reducing the shock stroke. With the same spring rate there's not difference between how a 230x60 and 230x65 ride except for the fact that the 230x60 will bottom out sooner.

If you're curious about our, it link increases the Nomad's travel to 190 mm with a 230x65 shock or 177 mm with a 230x60 and alters the leverage curve to be essentially the same as the last 190 mm of the V10's travel while maintaining pedaling performance. So the long story short is it greatly improves the Nomad's descending while still allowing you to pedal the bike to the top.
