Things to know about Rear shocks
consist of two telescopic pipes which drive into each other, a source of some type, and an eye at each end by which the entire tool is attached to the case. A small simple bearing in each eye of rear shocks
allows the shock to rotate evenly when the halt is running. You can buy rear shocks from Specialized

Things to know about rear shocks
Rear shocks are distinguished into two types in the function of what sort of spring mechanism they have: air or coil.
• Coil sprung shocks
utilize a large metal spring, usually steel – placed outside the telescopic pipes that move up the shock body.
• Air sprung shocks
when featuring a compressed air spring in the body of the shock.
Replacing a shock
When replacing a shock it is necessary to make sure that the rear shock is cooperative with your frame. If you need to only substitute a flipped shock with the identical model, it’s a direct swap, but if you are looking to update there are many factors to take into the description. A shock is regulated not by the number of the bike’s rear travel which is mainly defined by the kind of suspension layout used on your frame – but by its stroke length and eye to eye analysis.
• The stroke length is the measure by which the shock reduces when completely packed. Again this is not the measure of travel available; a shock with a stroke length of 2 may for example be practiced on a bike with 4 or 5 of travel, depending on the suspension plan.
• The eye to eye measurement is the expansion of the shock from the core of one mounting eye to the core of the other.
