On Ebay Fox RP2 shocks 5.5" x 1"

Not mine, no connection.  Would be interested myself but I just ordered a Risse Genesis shock last week.
Mixed reviews online about these.  Looks like they would fit Homegrown FS

I know a 6i-i Fox rp2 will work but dont want to make a purchase without knowing the right bushings/ mounting hardware size. Anyone here know the size or have seen this done?

You could email the seller and see what he says and/or contact Fox?

Lets start a revolution HG owners. Fox RP23's and RP2's on Sweatspots. A 6.0x1.25 will work but what mounting hardware/bushings do we use?

I had a Risse Racing Genesis Damper (cheapest one) on a Cannondale SuperV 2 years ago. I had zero problems with it and thought it preformed great. Better than expected considering some of the mixed reviews. I would buy another. My 2 cents

No, I have not gotten the Risse shock yet.  Have read on Forums that they are slow and notoriouslu uncommunicative which seems to be the case here..
I recieved one email 2 weeks ago that said they were running behind schedule but should have it done next week..
I emailed again yesterday but have not heard back.

I have been doing more road bike training for the “Tour de Manure” next weekend in Sierraville or I would be really unhappy

Nope, wasn’t me. I’ve got an Alps 4 that still works on my fullie. I’d love a reason to upgrade but can’t justify it while the old one still works and holds air.

Are the specs the same on the Carbon Vs. Factory frame for that shock?
How is the the shock performance?
