    the shock size of M6 is available only for a few shocks: the Manitou Revox, the Cane Creek DB and the Bos Stoy. No Fox and no Vivid sorry!

    The vivd is available in 10.5X3.5 but it is very hard to come by, BTI carries them.
    Other options:
    Bouble Barrel- my #1 choice
    Elka
    BOS-I heard many good things
    Revox
    Avalanche-also a good choice

    As for ordering the bike without one, it is not going to happen. Intense wants to ship all frames ready to go to cover their asses.

    6 choices is pretty good.

    also in the RS website they don't talk about a 10.5 vivid. I have seen only one on the M6 of Miss Kovaric (Claire Buchar). In the BTI site are not in stock now.

    I really like other shox.. something like the vivid because in israel you dont have service for manitou and I like the vivid much more.. a fox will do the job but I think that RS just make 10.5x3.5 shox for their riders can somebody tell me about this?

    The user bachmayeah ordered one. But I don't know if you can get it already directly with the frame.

    Intense Shock Choices

    Currenty the only shock options are:

    Manitou Revox - Stardard on the M6
    Cane Creek Double Barrel Ti - Optional on the M6

    Because of the length & stroke of the shock, there were not many choices at this time. We may look into testing out some other offerings this winter.
