Rock Shox dart 2

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have a question regarding a Rock Shox dart 2 shock.

 

It has broken at the bottom on both sides where the back flange/lug/thingymabobby that fits around the wheel skewer to hold it in place. They are totally off. exposed is the raw aluminum Alloy.

 

I am on a budget - so my question is the obvious........is it repairable, or when a shock is damaged to that degree is it throw-away?

If you are the original owner, try the agents for a warranty claim on the lowers. Otherwise, I'm afraid it's a new fork for you...

Hi -

I am unfortunately not the original owner.

I will slowly start looking for another one.

and hopefully someone knows something and posts it.

Thanks for your input

Take the shock to your LBS, to forward it to Cape Cycle Systems, they might give you a good price on a upgrade shock.

I meant to ask... what did you do to it to break the dropouts off? And did you survive it?

It is too silly to mention  - but lets just say that it wasnt the shocks fault

nor was i actually riding the bike.

It is a cool shock - sell you mine for R1000 Embarrassed

Its quite weighty  - and is an entry level shock.

Also needs to be serviced quite often to keep it in good nick.

I like my Dart 2. Fine, it may need regular servicing but its stupidly easy to service yourself so no train smash!
