    does anyone know if it will fit? I am not liking my DHX and think the Vivid "SOUNDS, via internet chatter" better than a Rocco.

    The Vivid will fit. Saw one already on one I think on Pinkbike somewhere. Will try to find the pic. Plus after owning a Glory in the past I know what will fit and will not. I would get a B Tuned Vivid if you plan to get one for your Glory.

    2007 glory fr, the dhx 4.0 didnt feel good on my last ride so I am going to give it one more shot after a buddy/bike mechanic tuned my suspension and see how it goes.

    B Tune is the same they are running on the Sunday factory. Yes the Vivid is way better than the Fox 5.0. You would want to run a 350 to 400 lb spring.

    Tunes:
    • Tune A: 2.0 - 2.4 Leverage Ratio
    • Tune B: 2.4 - 2.85 Leverage Ratio
    • Tune C: 2.85 - 3.3 Leverage Ratio

    THe A-tune is what they're using on the Sunday actually not the B-tune.

    Yes you are right. But I would still put a B tune on the Glory. It has a little higher Lev R. than the Sunday.

    the ratio on the glory is a bit higher than 2.85, 2.909 to be exact, wouldnt that necessitate a c??

    I would go with the one a little lower like the B Tune. That would make the shock a little more sensitive on the Glory than the C Tune. I bet most people would not feel the difference though between all 3 Tunes on the Glory.

    Hi FCFinder..I bought the Vivid 5.1 for my glory but I am not sure it come with B tune or another tuning. I can check with my LBS and see could they change the B-tune for me.

    By the way, I am not sure did the 350 or 400 lbs which will be suitable for me. I weight around 72 Kg or below 160 lbs with gear?

    Finely Etched here. On the end of the # you will have an A,B, or C



    Would try a 350lb spring first and if it is not light enough get the 300lb. Remember you want as light as a spring you can run then set the damping to make up for what you need.
