I can get a new one for almost free. I know it's not a stable platform shock. But it does have a lockout button and I'm thinking it would be a pretty decent shock.
I have bottomed them with coils, which are pretty linear.Mountain Cycle Shawn said:That was fast! I was thinking about that and thinking, being an air shock, it should have good ramp up, at least at the very end of the stroke. And come to think of it, I don't remember ever bottoming the rear of any of my SA bikes. The front I have, buy never the rear.
Hey John,Mini Man said:Hi MCS, I have been using a Cloud 9 for about 2.5 years now and really like it , it is very comfortable the way I have it set up with about 50% sag , I have found it works best with a smooth pedaling style, the lock out I dont use as it turns the bike into a pogo stick.
I have this bike set up to use on the road mainly but still go off road when the mood takes me and dont have any problems, the bike is on slicks so I have to be a bit more carefull on loose surfaces, my weight is 68 kg.
I have a very bad back from a motorcycle accident in 1972 so I really appreciate the comfort the cloud 9 affords, incredible small bump compliance which is why you need to pedal smoothly , its very tunable to suit yourself though.
Right on! It looks like we have a lot in common. I have a lightly modified '05 Cooper S. I would love to see a picture of your '67 S.Mini Man said:Hi MCS, the bike I have it on is an 06 San Andreas DHS, I drive a 67 Mini Cooper s
