Spree shock for very heavy rider

Post by CalvinB » Sun Feb 28, 2016 7:45 pm

Sorry but the title is a little bit click bait. I'm buliding a razz with zuma engine. Long story short I noobed it up and made all my brackets using a stock spree shock. Turns out the stock spree spring rate is nowhere near what i need. Are there any shocks that have a much higher spring rate than the stock shock, but have the same eye to eye?

I think you can get an adjustable air shock for a ruckus, and that should work.

Is the spree shock similar to a ch80? if so there are shocks out there that will work.

Hahaha, yes it is. I think like $100-200. It's not really worth it, but I'd like to have a bad * doppler air shock or some kinda remote reservoir racing shock just for the look haha.
