Hi mate, Nice bike. I finished painting and renovating my Sex Too recently over the lockdown. I managed to source another Marzocchi A25 from eBay but for the life of me I can’t seem to pump it up. I have used my modern Rockshox pump, various hand pumps and car tyre pumps, which work but it wont let me unscrew/remove without it loosing air Pressure. Im needing a quick release connection small enough that will fit between the pump and into the valve. Both my shocks hold air but I just can’t keep it in...lol
Nice to see a modern Fox r32 on one of the comments on your post. So I’m quite interested in following that direction too. Ive also found out there is a company called ‘Risse Racing’ who will make you a rear shock to fit as well.
Hopefully you will have as much fun as I did renovating this awesome bike.
I think the take home is that a slightly longer 150mm shock with a 80/100mm travel fork should work out. Dont forget offset bushings give you a little bit of final adjustment on head angle and bb height.
Bottom bracket is a cheap and nasty unit which wasn't even done up properly. Now looking for something new and a bit bet quality. Currently a 68 x 118 unit so if anyone has any suggestions that would be appreciated. ...
