Nice write up! Makes me wonder what my fsr has previously been though.

Thanks for the flowers ;)
One correction, I have no Z1 Drop Off but the 130mm version. Would prefer the 99 Z1 BAM LT though :twisted:

OK, thanks for the correction. Still stiffy inducing! Regarding the rear shock on your bike is it 165mm i2i? What's the damage on one of those?
As a related aside I'm thinking of bidding on this but would like to know what shock that is. Not the standard one. Seller's feedback is slightly ropey and descripton of the frame is brief to say the least.

165mm i2i and 38mm stroke. Looks like a 98 or so fox vanilla rx, has preload and rebound adjustments.

How much was the rear shock?

Ah, okay! :)

It's a DT Swiss SSD 210 (165 i2i) which I got for 40 Euro. Quite a bargain, I guess ;)
In combination with the BETD this results in 125 or 140mm travel, depending on the hole I chose.

Yeah 40 Euro is a bargain. Do you reckon the shock from the green Extreme I posted above would fit OK on my bike? Can't really see why it wouldn't but thought it best to ask someone who probably knows a lot more about these things than I do.

It will fit. Honestly though I'd upgrade to something a little newer. Check out pinkbike and ebay. Not sure if you're looking for coil or air but you can get a 2006ish fox float for around 60 euro. You can even get a longer travel one with that link, I'm not sure of all the i2i specs on it though.
