Rear shock Santa Cruz Tallboy


Newboy

Recommended Posts

Is there any reason why I can not turn around the rear shock on my bike? The pro pedal switch is very close to my water bottle and sometimes I switch it by accident.

I saw a lot of Tallboys in Hermanus this holiday with the shock turned around. Actually just turned mine as well. No problems.

Only problem I can think off is that the oil will now not properly lubricate the sleeve/seal as it will drain down to the other (control) end. Will have to rest the bike upside down every now and then.

I have been riding my SC Superlight with the rear shock turned around for a few years. No problems.

The bolts that hold the shock to the frame? The bolts go into a threaded shaft from each side, are both sides seized?

Surely one side should come out with some effort, I may even have spare bolts and shaft for you.
