Recently I overhauled the Remedy and shipped the Lyrik and the Float to Tim Flooks for tuning and maintenance. Sending your shock or forks to Tim Flooks is not luxury, it’s a necessity! I’ve had my forks done by them since 2003 and even then I noticed the improvement. My buddie and I had been discussie PUSH tuning for ages and I had one of these “what the…”-moments when I booked my Float in for service. I’m glad I did!
It’s expensive, but our line of sport just is. The first thing I noticed was the amount of sag, a lot more then I’m used to. I resisted the urge to up the pressure and got to riding first, as per perscription of the shock-doctor who did the work on my Float. Before I had the pro-pedal switched on practically everywhere except for descents. But in Malmedy (±700m climb in 18km ride) I barely switched it on! I was kind of impressed… but it wasn’t untill I visited Nijmegen where my buddie and I do our fitness-rides and where I know the terrain like the back of my hand, when being impressed sounds just a little understated.
The Remedy climbs almost as good as the Fuel does (now I want to Fuel to be PUSHed too), there’s one rather fast descent in Nijmegen. I dropped the Joplin and attacked it with all I had and I couldn’t believe it. Brake- or speed-bumps? Like there where NONE! The Float feels endless, truly floating over the terrain and it responds so quickly yet allowing you to keep peddling like a full-efficient-maniac.
I would go as far as to say that PUSH tuning should be mandatory on every Fox driven All-Mountainbike.
A little info for you:
Looking for the ultimate performance upgrade? PUSH Factory Tuning Systems include our TF Tuned Rebuild, but then adds the installation of PUSH performance components based on rider weight and style, as well as year, make, and model of frame. We also add the Propedal feature to non-Propedal shocks, or retune the Platform feature of your current Propedal unit based on your application.
With this package, on RC/RL units, we replace the restrictive lockout piston with a PUSH high flow Vx compression piston for improved bump performance and control. We also remove the lockout mechanism permanently, add the Propedal feature, and custom tuned it to your application. More details here
