Seeing as I'll be speaking to fellow Hustler owners here, I thought I'd ask:
The RP3 shock on my Hustler will need a service soon - it all still works just fine and holds air 100%, but it's started to "squish" a little bit.
Now, a shock service is quite expensive, so I've impulse-bought a replacement shock in the shape of a newer TF Tuned Fox RP23, the same as the one fitted to Cove_Ash's bike ( which is gorgeous, btw
).. I managed to get it for a bargain price
The only slight issue is that the new shock is a 190 x 54, whereas my existing RP3 is a 180 x 45.
The newer shock WILL fit (I removed the old shock and extended the linkage by 10mm), and it makes bu*ger all difference to the angles etc. .. My question is, will it work? I'm guessing that it will as I've got the shock bushes/mounts to fit the Cove. I guess I'll just have a bit more travel out back?
What do you reckon?
