Anyone know of an alternative to KS260 rear suspension shock?
Hi, i have a dumbed down K2 FS Mountain bike that came from a sporting goods store not a bike shop. The frame seems quite good, 6061 aluminum, very nicely welded but the components and wheels were poor quality, i upgraded the rear derailleur and i can find better wheels but the rear suspension is pretty bad. Its a single high pivot which may be ok except for the Kindshock 260 rear spring/shock combo...the spring is 1100 in/lbs, way too stiff. Is anyone familiar with this shock and if so can you suggest a replacement?
