Fox RP23 various options?
I know, I know...search JONG, but I have, and it's left me even more confused, and I need someone to put things in laymens terms for me.
I've decided to replace my Float R, and I've pretty much settled on a RP23. However, there seems to be lots of various options on them, and this is where I get confused. It seems like there is various velocitys that you can get (I've seen low and high for sure)? I've also seen various rebound options (I think I understand this one ok). Finally, I've seen various numbers after the Boost Valve (175, 225 etc). Can somebody describe what these all mean, and what would be best for me?
Bike:Norco Fluid with 4.2" to 5.3" rear travel with a 120-150mm fork on the front. The stock shock is a 7.875x2.0 (200mmx50mm), but I know from running it through it's full travel, a 2.25 should fit. Would there be any benefit going to a 2.25 stroke, or should I leave it at 2.0?
Me:180lb, intermediate level riding skills. Definitely more xc/trail oriented, but getting more aggressive, and wanting to do some more AM type riding (but not drops or jumps of any real size) as well. Definitely prefer fast flowy riding to rooty/rocky type stuff, but do ride it all.
Let me know if you need anymore info, and thanks in advance for any help.

I'd call Norco and ask them what RP23 tune is best for that bike.
If you can run the 2.25 without anything making contact, then go for it. Might be another good thing to ask Norco.

You may be better off just getting your R tuned for you and your bike. Just something else to consider.a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort
