Rear shock-absorber recommends?

Hello folks, first time poster, I'm a regular visitor of your forums, and glad to be here.

I'm a frequent biker myself, though occassional mountain climber too.

Just recently, my rear absorber is starting to fail (oil type), and now I'm trying to decide what kind of I should go for next, should I get the air-compress type? or the oil type again? and are there any difference in between the two? (perhaps Air are better with rocky-roads?)

Appreciate in advance for any replies!

/cheers!

I was kidding about the CaneCreek... When it is released, it will cost $650 - $800.

Dont bother upgrading your bike. Its not worth it. Buy yourself a new bike from a bikeshop.
