Can anyone with an 07 Virtue 3 help me?
Hey there. Just took delivery of a my dads new 07 Virtue 3 today (Got it half price) Its a lovely looking bike, Ive taken a while to build it up for him while hes been out (swapped out those tiny bars for some monkeylites!). Its a small so it too small to me at 5 foot 10/11 but should fit him well. Im very impressed with how it rides, feels plusher than I was expecting. Anyway I went to set the rear shock pressure and found the smaller than normal eyelet on the Manitou radium RL shock. I havent found a deffinite answer for solving this yet, is there an adaptor available? Any help would be very much appreciated!
If you didn't post this in the shock/suspension forum yet, give that a try. Much better chance of getting a response. I have Virtue 2 with RP23 so I'm no help.
07 Virtue 3's have a Fox Float RP2 shock. I checked mine and the website and that's what I have.
The 07 Virtue 4's have a Manitou Answer Radium R shock, so are you sure yours is a Virtue 3?
The Radium RL has a normal schrader type air fitting that fits any normal shock pump:
The spec for the European 3 seems slightly different, its grey too. This is it here http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/id35810.html
The Manitou website shows the correct shock, you just cant tell from the picture that the valve is tiny!
