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:

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.
