I had my first ride on the over shocked /over forked set up today with a progressive coil shock set to 55mm stroke (Cane Creek IL coil with DVO progressive coil) with the pike bumped to 150mm.

It’s an awesome set up! I didn’t notice any loss in pedaling efficiency, nor did I notice any odd changes in the leverage curve during that last 5mm of stroke. No harsh bottoms, as a matter of fact I didn’t feel bottom once even though I reached full travel several times. I feel like this travel bump has really made this agreat all around bike for the people that want a lively playful ride.

got any pics? keen to see this!

I just bought a Cascade Components link for my son's V4 and used a 55mm stroke DPX2 shock since CC recommends air over coil due to the rapid consumption of available travel with the new link. This now provides 140 in the high setting and 150 in the low setting- thus it is now a Bronson. I swapped the fork out with a 2021 Fox 36 set @ 160mm travel and he loved it in the bike park in the low setting. I'll just flip the chip to the high setting for trail rides and maybe go back to the coil shock when his growth slows down some.

I am not sure that SC had progressive coils in mind when they wrote this air vs. coil recommendation in their packaging.

Does anyone know if the 5010v4 will fit a Float X2?

5-11" 200 lbs
Cane creek db inline 210mm x 55mm. with a 550lb coil. Rockshox Pike ultamate 150mm @75 psi. Michelin wild enduro tires, 2.8 front @18 psi, 2.6 back @ 25 psi.
The bike came with a fox performance. The Pike did not stop the high speed vibration but it is way more planted. The coil made it less poppy, no change in peddling efficiency, but it can absolutely pound through the rough. I came from MX so i never felt comfortable jumping with the air shock. Im more of a point and launch type. If your trying to reduce small bump chatter, the best way is through tire pressure; at the cost of steering precision.

How does the 210 x 55 stoke shock affect geo? Does it make the bike more planted but less poppy?

It doesn't affect the geo in a noticeable way IMO.
The difference in SAG is just 1.5mm (30% of 50 VS 30% of 55) and the rear travel goes from 130mm to 143mm.

But if you buy a cascade link with a 210X55 the rear travel will go to 150mm.

The rear wheel doesn't touch the frame.
