  1. Shocks and Suspension
    My rear shock is leaking a small amount of oil when it compresses, out of the rebound knob. Is this normal? How much would it cost to get it serviced? Or should I fix it myself?

    Hi All 2016 Jumpy elite has got the above rear shock as standard. During a test ride, it didn't make any noise that I can remember, but after some brake maintenance, flipping it upside down for a day, it's making a squishy sound in the shock. This goes away after 5-6 compressions hard...

    I recently acquired an older Trek EX7(06) with a Rockshox MC3 Rear Shock. I was hoping to replace it as there isn't a service kit available for this older shock. Can I replace it with something that is newer as long as the specs are similar? Mounting and length of shock, etc.? I am not looking...

    Hey all, I’m currently pondering the idea of a new rear shock. I’m currently on an Ohlins ttx22m coil, and honestly it hasn’t been my favorite. Already having issues deciding on coil weight when riding but the base tube just also isn’t working for me. Im thinking of switching back to air because...

    Hey riders - Anyone running the 600#/in coil on their Push Industries 11.6 shock? If so, what's your weight? I'm right on the cusp of Push's recommended max rider + gear 'system weight' of 265 lbs max. Their technical sales guru said I'm probably "Ok as long as it's under 268 lbs kitted-up...

    Hey all, I am looking for reviews. I need to replace my old (broken) Monarch RT (tune ML380) for a new shock and was looking for alternatives in about the same performace range. I found three shocks which I am deciding between and cost pretty much the same: Suntour Duair RC (M chamber) black...

    Hi, I’ve got a bike that originally uses a rear shock with size 210x55. I started changing it a bit by putting in some offset bushings which I liked. It gave me a 2mm eye to eye difference per side so in total 4mm change in eye to eye measurements. The bike I have also has a lot of clearance in...
  11. Shocks and Suspension
    Which would be the best choice for a 210# rider? Riding techie/XC east coast singletrack - plenty of rocks, some 2ft drops, nothing crazy. Will be on a Revel Ranger. I'm coming from a hardtail and prefer a firmer feel, sitting higher in the travel. As opposed to a "plush" ride. I'm thinking...

    What is it For years, mountain bike shocks on longer travel trail/all-mountain bikes came with inherent compromise. Opt for a coil and relish the frictionless off-the-top feel and zero-fade performance, but suffer the weight and climbing platform penalty, and deal with lessened versatility. Or...

    SR Suntour has been making a name for itself in the suspension world by offering premium suspension products at reasonable prices. While they produce everything from XC forks to World Cup winning DH forks, their range of rear shocks is minimal. The unmarked prototype has your standard three...

    The Super Deluxe Coil was put to good use on this Transition Patrol bike in Moab, UT. The big news of this announcement is coil shocks in the RockShox line-up have been vastly improved.

    When you break it down, a shock is comprised of essentially two parts - the spring and damper. It's obvious what the spring does, but what about that damper? This damper controls the internal flow of oil. In the mountain bike world, this is accomplished by either fixed or variable holes (aka...
