    What shocks can I use for the Otero Elite/ Super

    I have what seems like a good deal for a frame ($220) but it does not come with rear shocks.
    And what mounting hardware sizes do I use?
    Need Help

    Yeah, Mongoose uses 19mm wide x 8mm ID on all their bikes. Its an odd size that is kinda hard to find unfortunately.

    Actually, I take it back, All mongoose freedrive bikes use 19x8.(which is all there bikes other then the otero/salvo that replaced the otero last year) I believe the otero uses 22x8. I will take my wifes apart to measure if I get a chance, but the best way to find out for sure is to "like" mongoose on facebook and ask there. You will get an answer faster that way then emailing(and you might not get an answer at all from emailing.)

    So f'n true. I called their CS today asking about which headset to use (integrated vs semi)
    and the person on the other end told me to call the dealer because they "do not deal with that." !!! So much for Costumer Service.
