    Is an SPV 3 way a good choice for an Id?

    I would like to go for an air shock on my Id and I have found a good second hand unit.
    Itīs a 7.5"x 2" 2004 model.
    Thanks.

    This would be a California Id

    The SPV Swinger should fit your Id fine but the standard Id calls for a 7.875" eye to eye shock. The 7.5" eye to eye shock will lower your bottom bracket down a bit and slacken the head angle too. This could be a good thing if you ride where more stability at speed will benefit you. Not so good if you ride where roots and rock clearance is an issue.

    3 way

    I used one on a 5 Spot and it worked well for a while but it didn't hold up well.

    Make sure this is a recommended shock for the frame per Ellsworth, otherwise using it could void any warranty- would be the same for ANY BIKE COMPANY, NOT A JAB AT THE E WARRANTY! Please do not take it as such....Peace, Mike

    Swinger air 3 way is ok!

    Thanks for yor advice! Just checked an ellsworth 05 catalogue and the swinger 3-way comes as one of three shock options.
    Itīs allready mounted on the bike waiting for the saturdays ride.

    Get the fox RP3 or the Ellsworth customed tuned fox, it is something else on the ID
    I would'nt waste my time with anything else this shock rocks on this frame period!
