    Super V 700 rear shock

    Hey, i'm new here.

    I just got my first MTB
    A Cannondale Super V 700 form '99

    the only problem it has is that the rear shock needs to be replaced.
    but i have no idea what size shock i need to buy.

    anyone who knows what shock this bike needs/can handle?
    it does not have to be an expensive shock, i'm not going above ± €120.

    thank in advance!

    RISSE Racing will make one for you. Had to do the same thing for old super-V. Basically the shock fittings are custom for c-dale and Fox stopped producing replacements a long time ago.

    I was already afraid that was the case.. what is the downside of putting a 165mm one in there? there is a cannonade dealer 5km from my home, i will see what they can offer me.

    I can also try to get my FOX VANILLA rebuild.. but it is N2 pressurised and probably leaking, so renewing oil and N2 will probably not last a week?

    What i see on RISSE Racing looks expensive. but maybe I can just put a little extra money in the shock then.

    thanks for the response.

    I will post my findings later, for other people to read. it is pretty hard to get info on this. because the use they same name for like a dozen frames.. :s
