Rear Shock length


Recommended Posts

Could somebody please give me the "eye-to-eye" distance for the rear shock on a Raleigh Marathon LTD (18")dual frame.

I am populating the frame from scratch and have no reference.

198mm approx, I measured from bolt to bolt.

I presume this is the single pivot frame, not the frame with the shock behind the seat post.

Single pivot frame, Yes


Your measurement is centre-to-centre between the 2 attachment bolts?

Yes, between 196-198mm using a ruler(trying to eliminate parallax), my vernier is too short, get the closest to 197mm, should be correct.

I see the Raleigh website doesn't have the measurements.

Got another measurement of 199-200mm which practically confirms your values.

Thanx for your assistance. I've enough info to work with. One should've expected some info on the www, but I guess that's why we have thehub.
