216x63mm Fox DHX5 shock, uses 8.5x2.5 springs. I can supply a steel 450lb spring to go with it, though shipping costs may be higher due to weight Probably needs a service as I haven’t done one in a while Can ship to UK or deliver to Peaslake on sundays

This is a Fox Float 36 RC2 fork originally 160mm. Currently they have a travel reducer inserted to reduce to 150mm and I will supply with spacers to adjust down to 110m in 10mm increments. Although these are 26” forks, at that time they made them with clearance for 2.8” tyres. As a result they fit 27.5” tyres OK. I ran Maxxis 650b 2.5s without problems, though there wasn’t enough space for a bridge-mounted mud guard as well The steerer is straight 1 1/8th and is 178mm long. A Hope adapter is also supplied, which allows it to fit tapered head sets but will take off 2mm from the steerer length. The fork was Push tuned when new. It was last serviced mid last year by Tahnee Seagrave’s mechanic and has seen only light use since (it was on my second bike, a hard tail). The paint is fairly battered but the stanchions are in good condition with no scratches. Will post around the UK for extra, or deliver to Peaslake on a Sunday.

RockShox Announce New Super Deluxe Coil
Hi, to get access to the superior performance of shocks using the metric system, im considering botching my old 8.5x2.5" frame to 216x64mm. Has anyone else managed to do this?

NOBL TR33 Wheels - Review
@sicmoto: Stans Arch Mk3 is similar dimensions to the Flow EX and 425g Velocity Blunt SS is yet lighter at 395g There will be strength compromises vs the Flow EX but they are considerably cheaper than going carbon.

@Bkm303: is there an equal and opposite effect on the rebound as a result of air now being trapped in the wrong chamber?
