SF racing by far, i have got shocks from him as well as my friends and just ordered a set of pb1 from seth yesterday and i know for a fact he will be calling me a few days after to ask me how they are doing if im happy with them and giving me advice, average rec racers and riders like me and prob 98% of this site will never see that from fox elka or axis and i have purchased from all, i have called fox and its like your bothering them when you call for help so remember even if you go fox sf racing is a dealer of them as well

I ride Elka's as well as my My friend Mike Troiano (NEATV PRO). we both loved the elkas and they are easy to adjust but it does take time to get them dialed in like any shock.

The front shocks are flawless, but as mike troiano saw this year, the faster you get the more often the rear shock needs to be rebuilt. Mike was having Donald at BCS performance rebuild his shock atleast every other race, if not every race.

I had to have my rear serviced 3 times in 12 races, and i only ride at races...

I had Fox's on my LTR's a few years ago and liked them. Either shock is comparable IMO
