    I've got a Maxton modified front end, built for my weight. Nitron shock on the rear, again, custom spring for my weight. Both mods have completely transformed the handling  :046: :788:.

    I have been very pleased with the mods Maxton did to my front forks. Not so happy with the new rear shock though. First of all they had set the compression damping at near maximum which caused a very hard almost solid back end. Had to take the shock off to alter it. Then it leaked oil. They were very good at sorting it out quickly though. I stuck with it for a couple of years, trying lots of settings, before fitting a Fournales Air Shock. Much simpler to set up. After trying various pressures, either side of their recommended one, I ended up at theirs. The Maxton shock is a quality bit of kit. It just didn't suit me. Still got it in the box somewhere.
