I just received an Air Shox branded rear shock.
Do not know anything about it, and Google does not help me.
Anybody with info on disassembly, or usable air pressures?
Looks like this, but w/o the trunnion mount.

It's a Taiwanese/German thing, made by Gigga Corp in Taiwan.
A version of it turns up on a foldable Mercedes-branded bike:

Airshox website (http://www.airshox.com) is dead now, and no update on Taiwantrade since 2009.

All the best,

Looks similar to rail carriage suspension.
