I've been upgrading my old 2000 year model XTC DS1 (the first NRS bike). The new front fork is now a Team Reba with PopLoc. Wheels are the Mavic Crossmax Enduro Disk. I'm sticking with the Hayes hydraulic disk brakes. What I need to know are the shock specs for the rear SID (eyelet to eyelet length and stroke length) without having to disassemble the shock and actually measure the thing. There is no Giant contact information on their website. Any help would be appreciated. I know that in 2001 they changed the rocker arm length and design to improve the leverage effect for smaller weight riders. Any input for a shock replacement would be appreciated as well.
