Trek fuel 90 disc (2003)

Hey guys,

I have some leftover parts from my old bike. I`ve had them stored for years now and don`t really know what to do with them. Mainly thinking about my Fox Float R rear shock. I also have a "swing" for that bike that i ordered but never used. The main frame had a lifetime warranty and was replaced by Trek twice i believe after two critical failures at the bottom of the perpendicular tube of the crank quite possibly from riding with the new rear shock in the locked position all the time. In the end Trek sent me another type frame that i still have and love. Here`s a link to the used Fox Float that i have.

Any demand for these anymore? Thanks, Bjørn in Norway

Just the shock you're looking to move? Honestly as far as I've been able to tell the market for older full suspension bikes is very limited. Likely meaning the market for the shock is going to be slim as well. You may find someone looking for one to keep an old rig going, but not for very much money.

Not really looking to move anything but i wouldn`t mind doing that if anyone actually needed these components. As far as profits go, that`s not something i concern myself with as i already have a new ride from the lifetime warranty that still works like a charm. As i was saying i also have a brand new swing arm for the 2003 frame that i must have ordered before the old frame cracked. Think i paid around $250 for it back then. Satin black allover. As i`m located in Norway, shipping alone would more than likely prove a dealbreaker for anyone residing abroad. Basically was just trying to figure out if anyone still use these types of things and like you said have an old rig that might need fixin`so i suppose you answered my question. Thanks.

Well i was out in the shack today and found another one. This one was used for roughly one year. Forgot all about it, lol.

RockShox Ario 2.2 Rear Shock (Includes air pump) in Tree Fort Bikes Rear Shock

Recon someone will have some type of use for it because i sure don`t ;-)

The eyelet to eyelet measurement is really important on thos, but if its a common measurement, there are plenty of old mtb's out there that might need a new shock.

My old Santa Cruz has a very similar shock, -- its an 02 or 03 model, -- and i see plenty of older rigs like mine still running around the trails. Shocks like the ones you have are perfect for the guy with an old bike who just wants to keep it running, provided it fits
