Dang what are you running your fork at? I’m 150 lbs and I had to drop the pressure on my Fox 34 Perf. to 60 PSI to get full travel.

Is the fox kit compatible with any other brand of shock? I have an EXT ARMA shock

Edit - never mind, read up and seems like the fox kit requires a $110 tool if you want to remove it properly.

I've ordered RCW kit now, thanks for everyones input!

No idea about EXT, but it is 100% compatible with RS and DVO.
I'm using a 1 euro bolt (not sure if it's M12) from hardware store to remove it, works like a charm.

Few small updates:

- 12-speed Shimano XT rear mech (with 11-speed everything else)
- Charger RC2
- 550 lbs spring

nice how 's that garbaruk chainring?
i tried something similar on my nomad. slx cranks with some taiwan brands - 32t pass quest chainring and a trw 12s cassette (360g). initially the nomad rode felt like a road bike (i switched over from a sram nx 11 speed) but now the shifts are sometimes not that smooth.

It's very light, looks good and it works )
I haven't dropped the chain for the last 200km or so.

How much do you weigh? What spring did you run before?
Cheers.

Wait can we go back to the part where someone weighs 116 lbs? I haven't weighed that little since middle school.

77 kg /170 lbs
Was running a 500 before and bottomed too harsh and too often.
Now is much better, it gives me around 24% sag, which felt a bit weird in the beginning, but then I've added 5 psi to the fork and now it feels really good.

Well, I've even bent the lower shock mount bolt on one of the landings...
But it was on the stock 450lb spring, which actually gave me around 30% of sag...

I'm quite certain that those bolts made of hot butter. My bronson's bolts are super bent and i struggle to get replacements.

True. I've bought Burgtec titanium bolts. Still straight after a few month.
