    New shock?

    I'd like a shock with a lockout for my 2010 Jamis 650B1. Came stock with a Rox Shox Ario 2.1, and for the life of me, I can't find any dimensions for it. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Measure it maybe? Eye to eye is easy. For stroke, just take the air out and sit on it. Gently. Use the travel indicator o-ring to see how far it moved. There's your stroke.

    Plus, if you know the travel, you can divide it by the leverage ratio. 130/2.6=50. I think that's your travel and leverage ratio if memory serves.

    Hopefully one of these match-up...

    You could call Jamis.

    Eye to eye is 200 and stroke is 50 on the XCTs and 650Bs.

    Thanks. PUSH told me my 2010 was pretty old school. I guess suspension is a pretty rapidly evolving target. Explains that pedal bob thing. I guess I need to break the frame somehow, so I'd have an excuse to update.
