Answer Manitou FS shock mount
I just came along an immaculate Manitou FS (newer style) with a rather interesting shock mount. The rear shock is a threaded coil-sprung with a piggy back reservoir. The odd thing is that the rearmost shock mount is not a standard bolt-through design. There is actually a machined metal plate that is attached onto the end of the shock. The metal plate is an adapter from the end of the shock body to two bolts on the wider rear triangle. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of how to get a mounting bracket to upgrade the rear shock to an air-sprung Fox Float RP23.
I'll get my own pics of the mount, but I did find a member of MTBR that had found a solution. http://www.mtbr.com/reviews/Frameset...ct_21375.shtml
The poster mentions a CNC'd part that did the job, but it was from a German company called "RESET". Googled it to no avail. Has anyone heard of this company?
I could have a friend machine it in the States, but if RESET has already done measurements and has a program written for it, that'd take a lot of the work out of my end of things.
Thanks in advance.
