      Rear ride improvement on an RD

      Wife has been complaining of the ride in the back for the 3 years we have had the XC, and I will admit, its VERY crashy over smaller/sharp bumps.I didn't want to swap them before, as didn't want to degrade handling a bunch by putting regular shocks on the back. Seeing another post in V60 forum of a few guys trying the Koni active red shocks, so bit the bullet and put a set on. Ride is VERY much improved , with so far little if any reduction in handling. Very nice improvement!

      Did you just put them on the back, or fronts as well? I've been thinking about doing this as well.
