I prefer coil in the front and air in the rear, That is what kinda challenges me on the Fox, spend $1200 on the fork with a Grip2 damper, and another $400 with PUSH to get the coil. The Mezzer and IRT allows you to tune the entire length of the stroke. The sealed damper manages oil foaming and migration better and has totally seperate high and low speed channels (shock does too). FOX and Rockshox you get one or the other, Fox and a Grip2 you have better small bump (still not good) sensitivity with the new forks and grip2, really good big hit sensitivity, support on both ends of the travel. Rockshox Its the opposite, good on the small bumps good in the middle, to me feels like shit on the bit hits, feels like crap under braking. Hopefully Friday I will have it together with the new fork on it. Shock left Germany yesterday, who knows when the hell it will be here.Awesome, thanks for the intel! I haven't ridden Mezzers. Looks like a great fork as well. I took a spin on a MRP Ribbon Coil last year and was favorably impressed, but didn't get enough time on it to thoroughly evaluate.
