Manitou Drake - air absolute.


Mine is only 80mm travel and tell you - Never have I bottomed out!!

You set (i.e pump it up) it according to your spesific body weight...


I weigh 95kg's and are not kind to my bike an any downhill...in fact thta is my strong point..I have to make up time lost on the climbs!!


you will not be dissaapointed in this shock...

Somewhere on the Hub there was a post stating that you can get a Suntour airshock from a bike shop for R1 350.00.


Perhaps do a search and see who posted it. Maybe he can point you to the shop that quoted him.

Maybe you want an air fork. Those are up front.


Shocks are for the back.


I have a Manitou Minute 2.00 air 100/130mm for R2000
