That is just a remote for switching from ProPedal to Open...but not to lock 100% the shock.

The main thing that pisses me off re Fox is that they don't give out any info to help you service them yourself. Everything has to go via an authorized dealer. Rock Shox, in contrast, tell all...

I ride my bike for 4 years without needing service even in my Triad or RLT. They don´t loose air in the whole year.

i have an monarch 4.2 on my spark. i'm sub 70kg, and with original setup (retail version "B") there is too less damping. with 10wt oil instead of 7,5wt, it works, but perhaps i will change to 12,5wt. i build a custom remote adapter and use one poploc for fork and rear shock. i will post pics when i get my pushloc and the problem solvers cable doubler 1:2.

Hello guys! I'm considering buying a spark and I would like to replace the original shock with rp23 BUT I've heard from my friend about an issue. When replacing the shock you need special bushings for rp23 to fit it to the spark frame - OK. However, I'm not sure it it's true, the original bushings/original shock has got "bearings inside" which allows the shock to move not only up-down but also left-right. Is it true? If yes, isn't dangerous for the frame to install rp23 with "rigid" bushings? Thanks for any piece of advice!

if you use alloy bushings like the ones sold by Fox you will be Ok,. These allow some horizontal movement but I doubt you would want some lateral movement at all on the suspension.

The thing is though, I haven't seen it, touch it etc. So I don't know what my friend was talking about?! He said that original DT Nude has got 'bushings with bearings'?! allowing shock to move. Replacing with FOX and original FOX bushings made the shock 'rigid' in the frame. He got scared about potential frame destruction and he resigned. Now I'm facing the same problem because I don't want this bike with DT Nude. Either I can replace it with Fox or I will not simply buy the bike.

You don't have to worry about anything.....I'm on my second Spark with RP23 with no problems so far.
