Future customer here. Thanks for taking the time to answer questions here. Had a dhx2 on my nomad 3 and really missing that coil feel on my new Bronson. Will the dhx2 or the ccdb coil fit? Also will the progression increase be enough to support the mid and end stroke on a coil shock or should I still consider a progressive spring? Thanks again.

Both the DHX2 and the CCDB coil will fit! I've been really liking my DHX2. Lately I've been running a Super Deluxe coil to compare and am quite surprised with how good it feels actually. The progression increase is enough to support mid and end stroke with a standard coil. We've been doing all our testing with standard springs. Another PB user just did a write-up on a prototype Bronson link that he's on here https://www.pinkbike.com/forum/listcomments/?threadid=213909 if you want to see someone else's take on it. The production link will have the same performance characteristics, but shock clearance will be much improved. As you'll be able to see in his photos it's a very tight fit with the prototype link. Ohlins is one of the narrower coil shocks and we wanted it to be able to work with all models.

Awesome!
Thanks

I loved my Hightower. Sad to see them change it actually. The last generation Hightower LT was my favorite in terms of performance and aesthetics.

Lol I sure would hope it has since that bike came out... Vpp on the new low link shock bikes kicks ass. Go try one.

I liked my Nickel a lot. Same geo as the Blur TR without the price tag.

Surprising enough some ask carbon prices for old nickels / butchers even though mind an alloy sc or any alloy framed bike would tempt me away from buying plastic again

As carbon isnt all its cracked up to be ime

I'd never go back to aluminum if carbon was an option.
