nice price! Do you swap the shock, too? Because I switched to a more recent DT Swiss air shock - the improvement of function and weight is quite remarkable... :)

Nice one Mick - Snap!!

I was watching that one and was interested to note that it doesn't have the same head reinforement as mine - which means your forks will fit!

Standard varies between 155mm (6") and 165mm (6.5") depending on age of frame so my guess is that this shock is a later fitment.

Interesting to see the effect on hamdling since I have been thinking about buying one of this length for mine.
