Default Rear Suspension

I have a GF Joshua X0. (1998) The rear suspension is very bouncy
(RockShox Deluxe). I want to get a new rear shock. Can I get
recommendations and sources for replacements? I seem to be unable to
find reviews on rear shox. I find lots of reviews for front sus
forks. Also, I would like lock out control - or is that necessary on
new rear shox? Thanks in advance for info.

Default Rear Suspension

Rear shocks are expensive. In all honesty, you'd be better off saving
your hard-earned and buying a new bike. The main reason your suspension
is so "bouncy" isn't the shock's fault, it's inherent in the design of
lower end full suspension bikes that use a URT (unified rear triangle)
single pivot. For about $450.00 you can get a shock that will filter
out the bobbing, or for $700.00 you can get a great full suspension bike
like the Jamis Dakar with a true 4-bar rear linkage that works
independently of any pedaling down force.
