Any other good lightweight shocks with around 100mm travel and v-brake mounts you can think of? Might put out a general query along those lines.


You might well find an older Fox that fits the bill. I get confused with the names. Have a look at this as an example...

Now this might work, Steerer looks quite long, V Brake and may go cheap. A sevice at the Pines is £55 plus parts...£90 at TF tuning.

been thinking about a kona , ive considered most others but i just dont have the desire for them like a kona . trouble is they fetch kona prices , seems everybody wants them regardless of spec . id happily have a hannah . i suppose i should just try buying one for more than £10 :lol:

mrs has just bought one of these for her bike

Stand to be corrected by virtually everybody but I'd say '93 they went from 1" to 1 1/8", could be '92. Ask Al
