Review: Formula Neopos Air Volume Spacers
Yeah i personally think the volume spacer fad is over. It doesn’t work and it makes your forks feel gross. Way better getting the right spring rate and the right compression and rebound settings.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Have an Air or Coil Sprung Shock on Your Trail Bike?
@maglor: one it’s not a small performance difference. I don’t know what this ease of set up and adjustability comes from in my opinion coil shocks have always been easier to set up and once you’ve got it dialed you never need to touch it again like an air shock which is always a work in progress. Always needs servicing topping up. Guessing how much air you lose when you unscrew the shock pump etc. But I agree with you if you’re saying most people don’t need a coil.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Have an Air or Coil Sprung Shock on Your Trail Bike?
@maglor: no unfortunately it isn’t my opinion due to a little thing called physics. An air shock can never perform as well as a coil it will never happen. Air will always be playing catch up but then again a coil shock will never be as light as a air shock. Take your pick better performance or lighter weight because you’l never get both. Literally nobody uses air shocks except mountain bikes I wonder why that is?

Air doesn’t even come close in performance what planet are you living on? What you really meant to say is I don’t really know how to set up my suspension so I ham fist it by ether pumping it up or maybe putting in a volume spacer in it and get it sorta feeling ok... where you can’t get away with that with a coil. I swap between the two because the coil is a lot heavier but performance wise it’s miles ahead.

@NotNamed: yes it definitely would work again you just need the correct set up. That’s like saying you couldn’t run a coil on say an alpine. There’s absolutely no application where air wins on performance. Airs just easier for people who don’t really know what they’re doing they pump it up or at best stick some volume spacers and you can generally get away with that. Coils are much harder to set up. Flying through your travel and bottoming out at high speed compression less rebound job done. Literally nobody uses air shocks except for mountain bikers for a reason.

I own Air and coil. I originally got the coil for bike parks but rarely take it off because it’s basically better in every way. Facts. Haha I also say the same about my hardtail though.

Add high speed compression and maybe less rebound. Maybe buy a bigger or firmer bottom out bumper.
