Push those shocks!

Push Industries, as you may or may not know, are in the business of making Fox forks and shocks run the way they should - or better - by tuning them to the individual rider. They do factory-quality rebuilds and can add platform damping to older Fox shocks and forks. With forks, they remove the lockout... actually with both forks and shocks they remove the lockout, but in the case of the forks the lever remains. What it does after the Push treatment is turn on or off the platform damping. We reviewed the Stratos ID cartridge in a Fox TALAS a little over a year ago and felt that it worked great, but there were times when we wished we could turn it off and just let the fork work as it originally did. Well, with the Push mods, you can.

But what if you don't have a Fox fork, but want all the beni's that Push can offer? Now Push is an authorized retailer for Fox products. You can buy a Fox fork - say a TALAS 130 - with the mod already in place. How cool is that!

We are working on getting a review sample from Push... if they return my calls. When we do, I'll report my findings, as usual, on GearReview.com. Until then, poke around Push's site and see what they offer.
