Old thread resurrection as I begin seriously exploring what I want to do / can afford to do to my suspension to make this bike feel the way I want it to. Where are you guys getting springs? I looked at Race Tech’s site and they incorrectly lost the 2015-17 XCX as having Showa units (unless somehow I’m reading it wrong). I’m on a tight budget as we enter a slow time of year for my business. I’d LOVE to send my entire suspension to Konflict (I would’ve used Mike, too bad we lost what seemed like a great place to set up our bikes but congrats Mike on retirement!) but I’m really wondering if I can get 90% of what I want from front springs. Is a revalve really needed? If I do the front will I be bummed about the back? My goal is to gain more ground clearance by eliminating the loss of almost all the travel from the bikes own weight, and to get more positive feeling from the front end on and off road. Can $200 worth of work (if I do labor myself) get me 90% of what $1000 worth of work would get me?
