I have a Mountain Cylce Shockwave 9.5 that has a Romic D at the back and Zoke 888R Works at the front. I'm currently happy with my setup right now but am wondering if any of the 3 rear shocks could even make it better. I only do recreational DH with the bike so weight and low center of gravity isn't much of a concern for me. I'm very happy with my 888R Works because of it's feel and tall AC height which is beneficial for my type of riding so I don't plan to update it. As far as I know, my Romic D is a twin tube shock that has general rebound & compression adjustments as well as a reactor valve that limits pedal bob. Both the RS Vivid 5.1 and the CC Double Barrel are twin tube shocks that have more specific adjustments namely (LSC, LSR, HSR for the Vivid) and (LSC, HSC, LSR, HSR for the CCDB). The Roco WC on the other hand is a Mono Tube shock that has general rebound, high speed compression, and bottom out air shrader valve. So far I've gotten inputs from a few people that have experience on these shocks. One guy I met has an Sinister R9 that came with a Romic which was upgraded to a Roco WC. I rode his bike in the parking lot and it was indeed plush but then again he's about 70 lbs lighter than me. He did claim that the Roco WC is plusher than the Romic. Another guy from the MC forums has the same bike as mine and upgraded from a 5th element to the CCDB. He has nothing but excellent reviews about the shock and claimed that it really made the bike feel a whole lot better. My buddy with the IH 7 point also upgraded from a 5th element to the RS Vivid 5.1. He told me that the adjustment range of the Vivid is so much wider than the 5th element and that it still doesn't bob even without pedal platform. He did tell me though that he doubts if the Vivid could be plusher than my Romic even at it's plushest setting even if you factor out the difference in travel. So to sum it up the Roco would be plusher but I'm afraid it might wallow too much and just blow thru the midstroke. The Vivid on the other hand might allow me to have more control with my travel but my friend warned me that it might not equal my Romic in terms of plushness. The CCDB would definitely have everything but is too expensive. As a matter of fact I can buy 2 Rocos for the price of 1 CCDB. I plan to buy my new shock at the 2nd week of April. Your thoughts please.
