To order your FixShox correctly, please follow the steps below
The following photo shows your shock absorber already with the original bushings disassembled and a FixShox ready for installation. If you don't have the right tools to take out old compasses, get help from a trusted mechanic
To order the correct FixShox we need 3 sizes:
- Width of the original bush to be replaced. The sizes range from 18mm up to 45mm
- Eyelet diameter.
- Through hole of the fixing bolt
Let's start with the search for the spacer width. It can be obtained in the following ways:
- Measure the original spacer
- Measure the width of the seat in the frame
- Look for the specifications in the bike manual
Search for the diameter of the eyelet.
There are two diameters available: the most common in recent years is 15mm while the oldest 14.7mm can still be found. So be careful to measure. See following photo.
Finding the hole for the fixing bolt through
The original mounting bolt on modern bikes is usually 8mm. Please note that some bikes also use 6mm and we can supply the reduction. Available as an accessory on the site.
Now it is time to place the correct order.
