    Jekyll rear shock options?

    Are there any aftermarket rear shocks that will fit the C'dale Jekyll frame? Coil or air, doesn't matter.

    I think you're stuck with an OEM part direct from Cannondale. The Jekyll uses that Trunion shock, and I don't know of any aftermarket manufacturers of that specific mount. I could be wrong though.

    Nope, you're quite correct. I've been doing some checking around and it looks like I am stuck with the OEM unit.

    My shock is made by Fox.. so it really surprises me that it can't be replaced by an aftermarket park?



    :confused:
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    Looks like the new Jekyll models have updated shocks which elminate pedal bob. I'll be contacting my dealer to find out how much an upgrade will cost for my '03 Jekyll 800.
