Hey man, sweet ride you got there! I actually have the same bike and am considering getting that coil shock for it. How did you like the change coming from the air shock? would you make the same upgrade if you could do it again?

Short travel 29er is the way to go, just decide how aggressive you want the bike to be and how you want it to handle. Make sure it has: -A Dropper post -11 or 12 speed drivetrain -descent tires -descent brakes (unless you really want to upgrade after ... more »

I just saw that WWC has a DB inline coil shock that is make just for the Smuggler and it's less than $500, may have to give that one a try soon....

Thanks for the tip Jeff, do you happen to know where I could get a longer spring for the 34? Just email Fox directly I suspect? that would make me feel more confident on the fork and save some cash for trips in the process, good call mate!

Thanks for the replys guys. I am thinking that the 34 could just do with a better tune and see how I could go about getting it upgraded to 150mm of travel. Maybe a coil rear shock instead of a fork? any thoughts on that?

Thanks for the tips Taldfind, I may just keep the fox and look at upgrading the rear shock now, good call!!

Good questions, I would say that for the fox I would like a bit more travel and some more ramp up at the end of the stroke. As for wheels I have an e13 wheel set with novatec hubs and TRS rims.

I agree, I ride in some pretty tech and rocky terrain with some lines that are fairly high consequence, yet I see almost no one wearing a full face (of any sort). I would argue that if any place calls for an enduro full face it is Grand Junction but ... more »

I had this debate with myself when buying a new bike (since one bike had the Shimano 11 spd with the E-13 big range hub and the other had eagle). I'm glad that I went with the eagle option, I know shimano just came out with and XTR 12 speed drivetrain ... more »

Both are great pedals. The Vaults still have the edge when it comes to grip, it may be that these Konas will do a bit better when it comes to longevity, it's still a bit early to tell.

Thanks. Love my Vaults, and no problems with longevity.
