    This shock is amazing. I've upgraded to this from a stock coil shock on the Diamondback Recoil 29er. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! No squeaky squeaky, easy on-the-fly lockout, smooth operation. Love it.

    Pros
    Pedal power increase
    Design
    Noise reduction

    Would recommend!

    Pros
    This shock is amazing. I love how I can use Propedal or not. You don't notice pedal bob and can just take it to the house. Real smooth.

    Cons
    Nada

    I would definitely recommend this shock. For those coming from hardtails and worried about pedal rebound, there is no concern here. I made the adjustment within a day or two, and even without locking it out, never really notice any pedal rebound.

    Pros
    Coming from riding nothing but hardtails, I do not have anything to compare to, since this shock is my first for rear suspension. This shock is everything that I could imagine and works perfectly. I like that you can lock it out on climbs, but honestly since it does not seem to have any pedal bounce, I never have to. It is plush and absorbs everything I can give it. Glides over rocks, handles perfectly, and for the small one and two foot jumps I have done, absorbs them like they were nothing. For me, its the perfect shock and I dont need anything more.

    Great shock, sweet and simple - straight to point. Adjustment are easy to use and placed in areas you can actual reach while riding. Not many adjustments but you get what you pay for. Great shock, but I wish Fox could make them a little cheaper.

    Pros
    - Smooth stroke
    - Controls are dead simple (on/off)
    - Quick and responsive Pro Pedal

    Cons
    - Price

    I have ridden this shock on my Giabnt Anthem for 4 years straight now on some of the most technical single/double track new england has to offer roughly 4 or 5 days a week and it has needed no repairs or maintenance yet! I love this shock!

    Pros
    - Pro pedal lock out
    - Quiet smooth operation
    - seems bomb proof so far
    - very little maintenance required
    - very little tinkering and adjustment needed
    - nice plush ride without a lot of pedal bob
    - never had any air leaks

    Cons
    non!

    I absolutely love the ability to adjust the amount of damping with the flick of a switch. Climbing is not difficult with this shock on a FS bike, and descending tough hills is a breeze once you've opened things up again. Even on ProPedal, the damping is more than adequate, though that may be due to coming from a hardtail. Either way, a great shock to have and I'll certainly keep it around.

    Pros
    Adjustability, flick-of-a-switch firmness for climbing, lots of travel, comfortable.

    Cons
    Can't think of any. The need for refreshing? Not really a con if you think of it as having a near perfect shock again for a fraction of the price of a new one.

    This came stock on my Trek Superfly AL Elite.

    Pros
    Easy to select Propedal - lefty-loosey, righty-tighty.
    This shock is on my first full suspension bike and I'm very happy with it. I'll update this review next year.

    Cons
    None so far.

    Came with my first full suspension frame. No complaints, I ride it pretty stiff though. Freeride/Urban.

    Pros
    feels great

    Cons
    switches / positions are confusing at first as they arent labeled. You have to look at the manual to figure it out.

    I got the DCRV version on my trek fuel ex which just soaks up everything i throw at it...

    Pros
    Easy to flip from open to pro-pedal on the fly.
    Great bump absorbtion.

    Cons
    Could do with a lock out but it's there in the RP23 for the extra 100-150 bucks!
