    Need knowledge on 2003 Cannondale Jekyll rear shock

    I am building a 2003 Cannondale Jekyll. I have a Fox Float RL Propedal rear shock for it. When I bought the shock, it said it was for my generation frame, from all of the pics I can find, it looks to be correct. But, when I test fit the shock in between the forward shock mounts and the frame, there is roughly 2 to 3mm of play on each side of the shock mounts and the frame. Is this how it is designed? I just can't seem to find a good enough pic anywhere that allows me to see if it is normal or if I have the wrong shock. If it is the correct shock, where may I find the bolts to mount the shock? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you sure you have a Jekyll II ? The switch from Jekyll I to Jekyll II was in 2003 if I remember correctly - and the Fox Float RL Pro Pedal only fits the Jekyll II.

    I have a Jekyll II 2000 with this rear shock, can send you some pics if you want - ?

    Here are a few pics of what ive got.

    Here are a few pics that may help with finding out if what I have is the right shock for my frame.
    In one pic you can see a few millimeters of clearance on each side of the shock mounts and the
    frame. I just wasn't sure if this was normal or not. Thanks a lot. This is my first time posting pics, so I hope they post.

    This is definitely a Jekyll II Frame, so the rear shock should fit. But maybe the bushings and bolts are not for / from a Jekyll. Other manufacturers like Corratec also used this Special design - or they are just worn out. Resolution of the pics is too low to say :-(

    The original mounting bolts and bushings can be purchased separately, please have a look on page 29 of the linked pdf.
    A cannondale dealer should be able to get These parts for you..

    Just heard Cannondale has stopped manufacturing these parts before some years, so it could be difficult to get them..

    Yes, that is exactly what I need. My frame already has the bushings, so I'll be on the hunt for the bolts. Thanks a lot for your help!

    I worked on one a few months back and there was play. I snugged it down until there was no play. So there's that.

    I have a Manitou Swinger SPV shock from my 2004 Jekyll 1000 lying around at home. It has damage to the very end of the shock shaft that does not enter into the seal area and is therefore cosmetic, but is otherwise in good working order. It has a pedaling platform that is adjustable by adding or removing air from the SPV (stable platform valving). I also have a custom made body yoke for the Manitou. My OEM yoke cracked on both sides where the side bolts screw in so I made up a stronger aluminium yoke. I would be willing to sell it if you were interested. If anyone is interested I can post up some pictures

    FOX vs Manitou on Cannondale Jekyll

    The body threads for the Manitou and Fox shocks are different, BTW.

    Don't remember the size/pitch of either offhand, but they are not interchangeable, you need the correct yoke for each.

    The part number for the FOX yoke was KF015, don't know the number for the Manitou yoke.
