    NRS XTC 1 broken rear shock

    I am 135lbs and have put a 5 inch travel shock up front (though usually leave at 4) and the 4 1/2 inch rockers arms on the rear on my 2001 NRS 1. I jumped off a table and blew the seals on the sid rear positive and negative air chambers. If I send to hippie suspension tech they will rebuild for $85.00 + shipping. I'm thinking since it is 4 years old I should replace, but am concerend about using a shock that does not have adjustable negtive air chamber. Any thoughts would be appreciative. Thinking maybe a used manitou swinger air? 1.5 x 6.5.

    I had an NRS with a 4" fork and the 4.5" rockers, and I really liked having a Cane Creek rear shock on there (the AD12), even though it doesn't utilize a SPV/ProPedal platform type system. It's nice and plush, super dependable, adjustable, and easily rebuildable at home. Cane Creek is also very good to deal with customer service-wise. Many people here have had good luck with CC on their NRSs. Oh, and you can send in your busted SID and get $100 off a new shock.
