    Shock size for 2001 Dakar Comp

    I've got a 2001 Dakar Comp with Fox float. The eye to eye length measure 6.5" installed. I'd like to replace it with a propedal version. Will a 6.75" version work?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I wasn't aware that Fox made a Float in a 6.75" size...the next size up is a 7.5" eye to eye. The exception would be a OEM size such as something for Specialized who often use proprietary sizes. The problem there is that if it is an OEM shock for a specific frame, it is probably valved specifically for that frame. Not sure if it would work correctly.

    What is the reason you want to change the shock?Is it for more travel or a different spring rate? Or ride quality? I only know about Fox coil spring shocks (900lb.spring@cambriabike.com &some on closeout @bikeman.com (Ihave a 2001 Jamis Dakar Sport)
