New shock link for 05 Stumpjumper 120

By Andy Bloot - Posted on 08 January 2008

I have managed to crack the shock link on an 05 Stumpy
There is no replacement in Oz (according to Supreme cycles) and am checking OS- it can't be re-welded
And I don't think later model linkage fits (or I guess they would have told me)
I need the entire shock link that bolts between the seat stays and the main frame
Any suggestions on where to find a replacement?

As a last resort GripSport may be able to fix it for you or fabricate something for you. Give them a call if you can't find a replacement, they do excellent work and are good to deal with.

If so I have read good reviews about this company.


Oh sorry just saw the price, although I should imagine by the time you get an original replacement there may not be much difference. Still it lets you choose 150 or 120 travel Eye-wink

And you know as well as anybody, Stuart, how much difference that extra inch makes (25mm for you young-uns)
It's not the price of these so much as the 15 days travel time (= 3 weeks off bike)
But at the moment I'm considering all options until Avanti rings to tell me they have a replacement to be delivered ASAP
You blokes (not just blokes) never cease to amaze with fountains of info

can make all the difference between comfortable and down right painful, particularly on a long ride

OMG... don't let cupcake see this - he'll be straight in there with an order for a red anno one! Eye-wink
