    Need your help!? 2001 Sugar 4 Shock replacement

    I have a buddy that just bought a 2001 Gary Fisher Sugar 4. He needs to replace his rear shock (AD5) to a Cloud 9 but he is having trouble locating the exact size of his so he can get the correct Cloud 9. On Ebay there are various sizes for the Cloud 9, can anyone help on this?

    Also, on Bikepedia and BikeCal it says that the 2001 Sugar 4 was a 2.5" travel AD5 but on the many threads i have read people say its only a 2"? Any help on this would be great! Thanks!

    I've searched this forum in the past for that exact info. and found it quite easily.

    If in doubt, call cane creek directly.

    Would you like to share your info?

    I did call Cane Creek, they said they didnt know what size came on the bike but that they did have a cloud 9 they could sell me in a month or two (out of parts) but still couldn't tell me what size that shock was other than it was the one i needed.

    If it has the B-Link suspension, it needs a 1.5x6.5. (2000-2001). In 2002 they changed toa 2x7.xxx
    Last I called Cane Creek (couple weeks ago) the guy I was talking to was able to look this info up and confirm.
    He additionally noted they were unable to produce this size Cloud Nine due to maunfacturing issues with current supplier, and they were looking for a new supplier of some internal part.

    Thanks for your help! Yes, it is a B-Link Suspension. I'll have him look for a 1.5x6.5 shock, thanks!... Any 1.5x6.5 rear shock will work?

    The info you got would explain why Cane Creek told me that they would not be able to sell me a shock till after Aug.
