Im wondering if anyone here has put a coil shock on a Ransom and what is your take on the change . I think im a little heavy (205lbs) for the Nude TR, just riding around my neighborhood im using 3/4 of the rear shock travel, what will happen at the bike park?

you will 100% clap it out but have you put the pressures up? cuz you should be able to be fine at 205 pounds

Iā€™m going to ride it at 300psi and see how i like it but im skeptical. Id like to have the option of being a little softer without blowing through the stroke of the shock. Neighborhood and bike path rides with my son, im seeing the travel indicator up about 3/4ā€ from the top of the shaft. There is no terrain where i live.

I'm weight 230 and have my NUDE shock pressured at 240 and am getting the correct sag and havent harshly bottomed my shock. And I am riding it fully open. Took all the lock out stuff.

I had correct sag before and was using way too much travel for my liking on sidewalk rides with my son. I spoke to my LBS and they advised me to max it out and see how that rides. So far its a little stiff for sidewalk rides but, i assume it will be much better for the bike park.
