Hello there, what has been your experience with the Swing Shock?

I am pleased with the Swing Shock for our road conditions, i.e. lots of potholes, strip-type speed bumps, and broken road surface, at little weight increase in the magnesium version. Also relieves some of the shocks to the neck. Downside is that it is squeaky (rubber parts). I willl purchase another when it wears out.

My MTB in semi-hybrid form. (well it has road going tyres on it) I'm in the process of changing it back to MTB. I've ordered some new bits from CRC so they'll be Santa's presents to me.

The well travelled 2010 Giant Cypress Anthracite. After 8000 km the only work required has been brake pads and two rear spokes (probably a bikerack problem).

I have not taken the bike with the Swing Shock on any trail paths, since it is a road bike - I use a mountain bike off-road. My opinion, however, is that the Swing Shock will be virtually useless off-road as it only has a 3-cm travel.

Just search your apps and you can find one easily to give the same effect.

Bought this Cannondale H600 in 1993. The owner of the bike broke the frame in an accident and Cannondale sent over this frame fork which he didn't like because his bike is 18", this is 16". His bike is red, this is blue. His is a regular diamond frame, this is a Killer V frame. So wrong size, wrong color and wrong shape. He rejected it and got another bike from the shop. His loss is my gain. For the last 20 years, it has brought me to many places and with both front and rear panniers, trunk bag and handlebar bag, it is able to do fully loaded touring.

I'll be curious to hear how well those fenders work in heavy rains. when I've tried 'shorties' like that, my back and butt have gotten soaked (draw a tangent line off the rear tire that just touches the tip of the fender, and its smack into the back seat, thats the direction water will fly off the wheel at any sort of speed). Ditto, the front fender doesn't go low enough to keep water from the front tire out of the crank.

Yeah, and it's not just the tangent. Gravity will send water in an arc, so any fender that doesn't cover the area above the back edge of the rear tire will let water spray over the bike. I see it happen all the time.

I really don't like fenders, but this is very useful when wet to avoid those skunk marks on my back and these are easy to remove, plus I think they go well with the bike's geometry, for my likes.

Here was raining all month long and since Saturday when I mounted them we haven't had a drop of water. I'll keep you posted on how they work...

I like fenders. I still don't understand why so many people don't like them.

It's personal taste, to me non-fendered bikes look more bad-ass...
