thought i would take a quick snap after getting a snack.
pic looked better when itook it but its all blurred :cry:
loving this bike, it rides really well. Got a rear slx mech, shifter and brakes to fit yet.
only problem i have is im a little heavy for it, could do with a stronger spring on the back?? Any ideas

You could pick up either a fox float or rockshox air shock for it, i'm not 100% sure on the eye to eye length you need i'm guessing maybe 165mm? You could pick a shock up from ebay quite cheap but them it might need servicing

I'm pretty sure the air ones need to be sent away to be serviced, somewhere like Mojo for Fox or TF tuned
