    Need Help Pls Cane Creek Cloud 9

    Hoping someone could help me, looking to purchase a rear suspension cane creek cloud 9
    but i have no idea what size or mounting hardware kits do i need. its my first level entry bike full suspension coming from a hard tail been riding for 6 months for health issues. Here's the information what i found on this bike online.

    You can try taking the current shock off, bring it to a LBS, and they can measure the eye to eye to figure out it's size and go from there. they can probably help you find what your looking for.

    There are two measurements you need to know when selecting a shock for your frame: 1) the eye to eye length, this is the length from the center of each of the mounting holes in the shock when the shock it as full extension 2) stroke length, this is amount the eye to eye length changes when going from full extension to full compression.

    The 2009 Iron Horse Warrior 4.0 uses a 7.5" eye-to-eye length with a 2" stroke.
    This is a very common size shock. Regarding the hardware for mounting the shock to the frame, there's a very good chance you can use the existing mounting hardware for the Cloud 9, but I'm not 100% sure. It depends on the eyelet diameter (usually 1/2") and width of the Cloud 9. Cane Creek (the manuf. of Cloud 9) may be able to supply (through your LBS) the hardware for your Iron Horse if you can't use the existing hardware.

    Hope that helps.

    If you order direct from Cane Creek, they'll ask you the year and model of bike and ship you a shock with the correct mounting hardware. Plus, they have a trade-in program in which you send them your current shock - whatever it is - and they send you a Cloud Nine at a reduced price.
