    Ellsworth Evolve - 120mm, anyone know the shock size

    Hello all.

    I have an Ellsworth Carbon evolve, and i want to convert it from 100mm to 120mm. To do this, I need to get a new shock. Does anyone know what size shock I need?

    Thanks wabiker357, but I actually mean the shock on the frame - not the fork.

    I actually ordered it from Ellsworth and it came with reducers. Have not Installed it, but it is suppose to keep the geometry untouched.
