I posted this over on mtbr.com's tandem forum but thought I'd post here as well -- seems to have a bit more activity & some very knowledgeable folks.
I recently purchased a used ECDM and had the LBS give it a once-over since I'm a poor bike mechanic. The only issue found was the rear shock (Fox DHX Air 5.0) isn't rebounding properly. Their recommendation was to have it rebuilt - about a $130 task. I'm wondering if that shock is worth the investment or if I'd be better off purchasing something new. If a new shock is the best route - any advice on which one?
Does anyone have input or advice on this? It's not an issue of trying to minimize cost - I would just like to have a good shock back there and want to make an educated decision.
