PUSH industries

Several members have mentioned PUSH industries. I went and checked out the websites. Does the rebuild really create a boost in the performace of the fork? They don't have anything new at the moment, but how much more expensive are their new forks? People who have actually used PUSH's services, was it worth it? What are the performance increases, if any?

100% worth it.

Better small bump compliance, yet better big hit resistance.

Just buy a Fox 32 and when it's time to rebuild...THEN send it to PUSH. A bare bone Fox isn't a bad fork.

Yes.
You're better off sending your own fork to get rebuilt.
Yes.

I had them do my rear shock...a Fox Septune on a Stumpy FSR. It made a world a difference! The bike went from an inch worm to something that is now stiff enough to ride out of saddle on the highest setting yet is soft enough to bomb down rock gardens. Worth every penny!

I sent my Fox TALAS RLC to them when I blew a seal, at first it seemed "harsher" than stock but now it seems just perfect, I've been using it for XC racing (along with the rest of the bike). Just get a Fox and send it to them when you need work on it, my Fox is by far the best fork I've ever ridden.
