Twain; have you tried the Lizardskins shock boot? I use on on my rear shock & it keeps the grit & grime out a treat!

To be really pedantic, the inner part should be on the wheel end. Theoretically it's best to minimise the unsprung weight.



that is correct. there may be lubrication issues as any oil inside will be at one end but I doubt hat is of any concern. nearly all bikes using air shocks have them mounted likethat but there are some Cannondales that have them upside and one would assume hey know what they are doing.

so in summary either way up.
