Excellent condition shock, 190mm eye to eye with 50mm stroke. Removed from my Cove Hustler as, although it works properly, it only seems to have 2 of the 8 clicks of adjustment for rebound. This was actually fine, as the 2 available settings were just right for me, but obviously, it is crying out for a service. The pro-pedal compression damping works as it should and the air will not leak no matter how hard you ride! It is medium tune and I cannot see any wear on the shaft. Just serviced the air can and it is immaculate inside. £45 posted in UK.

On a related note simesman - As you know I've just changed the shock on my Hustler.

I had a first generation Hustler which had a 180 x 45 RP3 on it - I've swapped it out for a 190 x 54 RP23 now and it's absolutely lovely. It's made no noticeable difference to the angles and it's given me 160mm travel out back too 8)

Might be worth you getting a 190 x 54 just to bump your rear travel up a bit?

Thanks Mr Ballbags. I need to look into that! It never hurts to increase travel. I will try to do some research to see what you can get away with.
