    Nomad to Bronson shock compatibility?

    Considering a new 650B FS bike. I own a Nomad MK2 with a DHX Air 5.0 rear shock I love rebuilt by Avalache recently.

    Can I move that shock over to a Bronson? I couldn't find the shock size info for those bikes on the SC site, but I may have missed it.

    Thanks for any feedback on this.
    Safe riding,

    It's on the aluminum FAQ's but not the carbon for some reason.
    The Bronson uses a 7.875"x2.25" shock (200x57mm). The mounting hardware is 22x8mm (or 21.8x8mm if Rockshox).
    The nomad uses 8.5x2.5 so no go.

    Only the new Heckler maintains SC's former shock eye to eye length standard of 8.5 X 2.5. Kind of a bummer, but cie le vie.
    the going won't get good 'til I'm good and gone
