    05 Giant Reign rear shock alternative?

    Looking to replace my 05 Reign 2 stock rear shock with new one.
    Current shock is a Manitou Swinger 3-way
    Which one will be my best option and fit properly?
    Anyone did this in past?
    Any recomandations?

    A plusher alternative to the Manitou is the Marz Roco Air. I rode one for a while and liked it for pure DH. It was lacking for XC due to little platform. If you are looking for something more XC I would go with a Fox RP23.

    I sent you an e-mail.

    The roco is a good shock, but it ramps up quite a bit at the end stroke for my 150 lbs.
    I ended up with an RP-23 with a 2.25 stroke piston, really plush, & you can set the propedal to your liking. If your a heavier guy the zoke will probably work fine.
