Very reliable, not too heavy, air or coil and they do what they should

The v mounts i think standard 8 or 10mm. Some models come with v brake mounts on the mx range and the older z (z1, z2, z3 and z4) series will have

Cool, they take low air pressure shock pump needed. Up to 50psi, a few psi can make a big difference. Manual online and simple to service, if need to change oil. Depends how bad they feel, 7.5wt. If need any more info when you get them, give me shout I see if I can help
