Shock Bushings Here's the first of a new line of development products that we're working on to allow various K2 and Proflex frames to work with modern airshocks. The original frames came with the excellent Noleen NR-2, NR-4 or Smartshock variants. In the last 10 years airshocks have become reliable and offer so much extra capability:
Can be more than 200grams lighter
Are more adjustable and offer more travel
Spare parts are readily available
Modern shocks provide lockout and pro-pedal options
Carbon Frame Top Bolt Bushing The first bushing to come out of the RDS loft is this: the CABolt. It has been designed to allow modern air shocks to be fitted to the carbon frames.
It splits in half and has been designed to fit snugly to the shock itself and bolt to the frame. It allows the shock to be fitted to the top bolt in the frame snugly, with no movement. It is stronger, better looking and safer than piling in washers to hold the shock in place.
Since this is an early development product - it is not on general sale. Contact Callum through the forums for more information.
