I will be purchasing a NEW 2002 Gary Fisher Tassajara. I can get it for a very good price as it is old stock. The bike has a Manitou Six Elite fork with 80mm travel on as standard. The LBS says they can upgrade the shock with a "Ride Kit" to change the travel from 80mm to 100 mm. I read on a website that the travel can be changed with all included with the shock. Are they trying to rip me off??? I weigh 125kg. Will this shock be suitable for my weight or should I get stiffer springs. How do I find out what spring is rated for my weight??? Should I not rather upgrade the shock now to an Air Shock??? What would be my best options. Also what is your opinion on the GF Tassajara.
Thanx in advance and keep those wheels spinning!!!
