Christian Koblitz wrote a review of FOX Racing Shox 40 RC2 Direct Mount Fork on March 31, 2011
Rode today and it was so nice to get out and ride some dirt again. Spinning in the garage is not quite the same, duh! Finally had the pleasure of putting my new 2011 Fox 40 RC2 through the paces and it has impressed me. The fork is unbelievable. The fork is stiff, tracks incredibly and the valving is worlds different than my 2007 Fox 40 RC2. I am currently using 9 clicks out from full closed on rebound, 8 clicks out from full closed on high speed compression and 9 clicks out from full closed on slow speed compression. These settings seem to be working pretty well. I am going to try 1 more click in from full closed on the rebound and compression and see how that feels. The bike was feeling a little bit bouncy coming down off a bigger hit into a high speed G-out.
I will add more to the review such as longevity, tuning etc. in the future to my blog! www.christiankoblitz.com/blog
