If I recall correctly that age patriot used a 200mm i2i shock, a decent second hand Fox unit shouldn't set you back much more than £50 on eBay, it depends entirely on your budget really.

Before you splurge your money do double check the required standard shock length, I'm not guaranteeing my accuracy!

I think it should be 195 or 200. Sure that can be confirmed via Google

Well not too much to report.

Wheels have turned up!

Found a nice shock.
Found a pair of forks I like.
Just waiting for delivery...

Ritchey headset sat waiting along with 10 speed Sram cassette and chain.
Specialized crankset, will do for now, doesn't look the best, can't make my mind up what to go for......
