Ok, I need help from the pros and technicians out there…
I am heavy, like 250+ heavy. I have a 2018 nomad with an X2 (230×60). The X2 is great, but I do ride very aggressively and at the same time, climb a lot.
I have my shock full volume spacers, full PSI and still climb at 40-50% sag and bottom out quite a bit on big hucks 6 ft+… I am looking to go to a coil. Any ideas of what best coil would be or any ideas on what to do with the shock?
Just thinking about it too, most shocks are valved to work for a certain weight range. For example the higher your spring rate, the more you need to crank up your rebound damping to achieve the same rebound rate. The same is true of compression. Those damping settings only have a limited range and you’re probably on the edge/outside that range. You would probably benefit massively from a custom shock tune.
