    Ibis Szazbo replacement shock

    Now that I have my Ventana X-5 I am going to have my old Szazbo completely redone. I had already had disc brake tabs welded to the swingarm (great!) so it needs a new paint-job anyway. I'd like to replace the Fox Alps 4 shock with something newer but don't know what shocks will work. Will any shock with correct eye to eye length work?

    Related to the bike rebuild though not shocks: anyone know of a company that can make a new set of OEM decals? I tried hitting castellanodesigns.com and sent an email query as the site suggested but didn't get a response.

    Give John Castilano a call - I asked him about replacement shocks for the BowTi, and he suggested the Fox Ava was the best - the sweetspot design needed a large air volume to get full travel.
