Firstly.. i dont want to sell this shock really... as it is wonderful..!

BUT... the rear beam has just gone on my car and i cant justify keeping 2 shocks for one bike..

200mm eye to eye..

and it is supposed to be 57mm stroke.. BUT.. i havent ever had more than 54mm out of it.. this concerned me at first but after reading up on it.. none of these zocchi air shocks seem to get the full 57mm! a high rising rate in the damper / air spring are to blame apparently!

so ive been running it on my meta 5 off and on (which is designed around a 51mm shock) and it has performed really.. really well when unlocked.. probably rides nicer than the fox float X that has replaced it in the full open mode! and to be honest.. if it was being used on a bike designed around a 57mm shock you probably wouldnt miss that last bit of travel as the quality is that nice!

but the pro-pedal settings on the fox are just that bit more rider friendly on longer rides as the lockout does completley lock the shock..

the air shaft has no scratches at all and the only marks are a few scratches around the mounting eyelet and on the pentagon drive cover that protects the air valve, these will have been made when the cover was removed when i sent the shock away to be looked at to see if the lockout could be converted to a more propedal like function (it can't unfortunatley!)

im asking £89 plus postage (probably about £6 - £7 i think)
