Re: Upgraded from Icon
Unfortunately that occasionally seems to be the case. I've had mine on for about 10 years and 100k miles with one rebuild. And between my brother and I 150k miles on Icons with zero issues. QC is likely to blame during the machining process if they blow out o-rings.
Same here... had the ICON's, (originally Donahoe's) for 11 years and 105K miles. Had them rebuilt once, and had them add the remote reservoirs. The first set of rear shocks were crap, so I got 2.0's with reservoirs as well.
Clearly something has changed, as they used to be universally admired, and now there's a lot of complaints. That's a problem as I was looking to get new suspension. Looks like it won't be ICON's this time.
Problem is... what to get? Fox seems to have gotten popular? This forum likes Toytec... another forum likes RadFlo direct? Having had ICON's, I'm used to a rather nice ride offload. Nothing is easy I guess?
