The quest for a rear shock that works is still on going though. Bloody things are expensive.


Yeah they are - the search for one has halted my FSR Max build. Whats wrong with yours - the shock itself or the spring?

i2i 152mm, although the tape measure tells me 165mm will also fit OK.

Do you happen to have something suitable? :D

It's the shock - something not quite right when it's on the return stroke, last 0.5" or so is kind of sticky (if that makes sense). Apparently these shocks shouldn't be compressed when there's no air in them, and mine arrived empty.

No sorry. My Shock is 155 i2i but is supposed to be 165. It is a Fox TC but I need a heavier spring before I can give it a work out.

How about this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/fox-shock-/32 ... 4aaf87261c

Will you be bringing this to GT ZZ? Looking good but agree with gazz on the grips, plain black would work I reckon. BTW I see you have went kinda all mountainish/DHlite kinda build, I always thought these were a XC/ Marathon bike?

Cheers Bullpup, added to the watchlist!

K - Aye, bringing it to GT, whether I get a replacement shock or not. And yes again, it should be an XC build, but bugger it, I'm on a bit of a '1 x' trip, and when I won the 120mm Z1s and the 20mm front wheel I just headed in that direction... I may yet revert to 3 x though - the bloody tensioner is draggier than Lilly Savage interviewing the Bangkok Ladyboys.

Oh aye, the grips work in the flesh. You'll see (even though it'll be dark).
