Hi Guys,

I have a 2004 DH Comp with a Manitou Swinger 6 TI. I recently learned that the shock has a small crack in it and will eventually need to be replaced (probably end of season). Apparently it is quite minor, but I don't want to be half way up a mountain when it goes.

Anyways, I don't know if their all like this buy my bike has a small resovoir that is attached further up on the frame and is not piggy backed on the shock like most systems. I can't seem to find any shocks for sale that have a seperate resovoir. I was looking mostly at the new Manutou and Fox DHX 5.0. Will a piggyback shock fit or do I need to find one with a seperate resovoir? If so, what are my options?

I'm also somewhat cosidering just buying a new frame/shock combo but I quite like the 2004 frame.

Thanks in advance,

Mark
