Hi all,

Having recently aquired another 1999/2000 San Andreas frame (before I've even got the first one back from the sprayers and built :oops: ), I have the choice of two rear shocks to use but does anyone know or have any preference as to which is the better shock?

Mountain Cycle Aftershock or Risse Racing Genesis Damper?

Will prob end up trying out both but thought I'd ask the question out of interest for now 8)

Cheers.
Alex.

:lol: :oops: :oops: I will get the chrome one back and built soon.... Even friends are starting to take the mick now lol... I have a new RP23 to go on that frame hence I've got the choice of two for this one. However this bike may go out to Spain in April to live so didn't want to rush to much or have to take lots of extra bits with me.

Cheers :).

I've used 4 different shocks to race DH on several San Ans. Performance wise I'd rate them:

1} Stratos Helix Pro
2) Noleen
2 - tie) Mountain Cycle Aftershock
4) Risse Terminator

The Genesis would rate 5th. YRMV
