I am 12 stone.

The damper unit does have ali cups for the elastomer to sit in, so thats fine. It has a little top out assembly too burried up inside the yoke of the seat stays.

I am not able to get a pic posted today sorry.

Does the £15 get me 1 or 2 pieces? I am wondering if I can turn down a piece to make the top out bumper

how much bigger ?

i guess its an ods

the cups will keep it in place , i cut them about 5 mm longer than they needed to be , so you can put more preload on them

not sure you could put anything in there ??


Yup it's an ODS (I think - it's bl**dy cold out there!); about 4 or 5mm space in there... Figure it should hold up though. Also, the girvin fork's only got one elastomer - I'm sure I can use the 2 you sent with a spacer between em though :) Yup - the 854 frame arrived today, so I can get the 856 all built up & enjoy!

Slim,

the damper assembly has a "gap" between the ali discs where the elastomer fits of 40mm length and 42mm diamater, with a 13mm hole through the middle.


The top out bumper I mentioned before can be made from a couple of discs of inner tube - it realy is only a 4mm thick disc.

Cheers!

i have some elastomers that might fit for the small part

they have a 16 mm outer dia and a 6 mm internal hole

cutting them to 4 mm might be tricky , but can try if you want

let me know the outer dia on the small one
