Fox rp23 on a cannondale rush 6

Hi guys got another question.
I just ordered a fox rp23 rear shock for my cannondale rush 6. I ordered the 7.5 inch version which says it has a 2 inch stroke. The paperwork for my bike says that I can use an rp23 but the specs for my bike say it has a 1.75 inch stroke. On the fox site there is no shock that measures 7.5 inches eye-to-eye with a 1.75 inch stroke. Actually all of the rear shocks I looked at the 7.5 inch shocks all have 2 inch stroke. Is the shock I ordered going to be OK on my bike?

No. Order the shock from a cannondale dealer, they can hook you up with the right shock. That is the same deal as on my stumpjumper and if you use a 2" clearance is an issue. Also PUSH may have em too.

I called cannondale and they told me the same thing you did. They gave me the part number to have a cannondale dealer order it for me. Thanks for the help.
