Are you looking for the original stratos (iirc) shock? I think I have one in fine fettle if so. If not, I've a couple of ario shocks (one with remote lock out) in 165mm, or a fox vanilla rx piggy back (coil/air) in that size.

X1's came in three versions,

entry level took the Dyna Mount with a spring - XC model took the Stratos A.N.A and the Pro/DH version a Fox Alps 4R
and if you had a few more bucks you could have the Stratos I.C.D lockout - Jussa the only owner I know who owns an X1 with a I.C.D

I believe they were all Steel, it was more to do with groupset and suspension, the Pro came with Red DH Judys and an Alps - XC ran a Stratos and Gold XC Judys and the entry level Quadra 21R's


And none of them could ever be considered the prettiest girls at the dance.... :D

This one's got an alloy rear end, with no disc tabs like the late x2? But on an x1 frame. Fingers crossed it's a good un

Interested to see it... Could be quite a rare beast !

would make for an interesting fusion if it's still retained the bent (Iconic) down tube of the X1



*I use the word Iconic in jest, I know its just fooking different.....

Mine's a very early version, X1's came out just on the cusp of V-Brakes hence mine running Canti's.... most were sold with V-brakes (canti mount on rear triangle removed) but never ever seen an X1 with Disc's mounts from the factory

Here's the shock I have. It's an xc pro and 165mm in length. It's got 2 types of adjustment, rebound and compression/lock out from what I can gather. Aside from a small rub on the can, it's pretty minty. I've not fitted it to a bike, I've been searching for an air option for my RTS and thought I could have something machined to fit this shock, but I need something shorter to start with length wise, which is hugely annoying as not much about that can be modified as I need it.
