100mm stroke shock absorbers

It seems from what I can find on the net that Ohlins, with their BM 141 piggyback units, are the only manufacturer that matches the original 100mm stroke of the standard units. Is that correct? Its hard to tell as most brands don't provide that information on their websites.

I don't like the idea that most replacement shocks are shorter travel than stock. One of the features of the bikes was this long travel at both ends. Are Ohlins the only option? I'd prefer no piggyback reservoir as, I think, they would foul the pannier brackets.

I don't think my new Ikons have bottomed out Mal. Only had them set on the second spring setting for my last rough ride.
