One more week to get your shock to Rick for the "group build deal". My shock and forks are both there, gonna get it set-up right just in time for prime riding time.

Yea, me too. It snowed yet again last night, coated stuff with ice ontop of that. We have had about 24" since mid December.

I want to ride my bike!

Hey rick I'm sending mine tomorrow also.
I have a eibach 8.1 spring with the kouba link adapter. I assume that will still work with your setup.
Do I need to send the spring also?

It is normally better to ship the shock with your spring, it costs only a little more to ship and we can make sure the spring is properly installed. Our spring mounting is not the same as the stock shock.

Thanks!

Hi folks,

We are swamped here with all the sport and race bike fork work this time of year so it is a little hard to predict what day we can start on the DR shocks. I need to have an exchange shock that belongs to us get here before starting. I have not called out a date for all the shocks to be in here so let's call it Wed. Feb 24 to make the build.

71 TR, I hope that works for you!

Thanks!

I can also consider doing something with the fork upgrades too if there is enough interest.

Thanks,

Rick
Rick,

If UPS is on track, then my shock should arrive today for the upgrade & coating.

What did you have in mind for a 'group' fork upgrade?

I know I'm definitely interested in doing something for the front end.
