    Trek Bruiser 3

    Hi

    I think I am one of the only people who have bought this bike, so I hope someone can help me.
    I want to replace the rear shock from the RST 22A that came stock.
    I would really appreciate some suggestions. I weigh about 170 lbs.

    Thanks in advance

    I can see that I really am the only one with one of these bikes.

    this gem runs a 180mm eye to eye with a 42mm stroke (180mm extended, 137.9mm compressed)
    so like a 7.5" eye to eye with a 2.0 stroke will work.

    swinger 3 way coil is nice
    two six is bet-ta

    i'm not going to make another tread but i have a question.. since he's^^^^^^ the only one who bought one i might be the second one to purchase one but i need serious advice...
    i know they retail for like 1000. or so.. but i found one used and in excellent condition.. onlything dirty is the center of the tires...hahaha but
    i asked a buddy of mine if he'd sell it he said 500 for it...

    i dont know too much about DH or Freeride bikes. I do XC and have a Stumpjumper FSR...
    so i'm clueless to Trek and this type of bike, but i want to start the DH Scene...

    this isn't the actual picture, but it is the same bike.. just a visual...

    ps no upgrades its stock

    you're better off buying a remedy or fisher fat possum.....for $500 its ok, but you'd have to put on a nice shock with a stable platform valve, so thats anout $400-500.
    still making it not worth it....id say no.....it would make a nice urban full suspension bike, thats about it.
    two six is bet-ta
