    Rear shock Schwinn Homegrowm (Help)

    Ok, this has likely been asked already, but I will ask again since I cannot find any info. I need a replacement rear shock for my Schwinn Homegrown. It has a Rockshox Coupe Deluxe Coil Over, Adjustable. I want a rebuild kit WITH A HEAVIER SPRING or a new replacement shock that will fit and function well. I don't know the eye to eye measurement.

    Hippietech suspension should have parts.

    You need to know the eye to eye measurement and the shock stroke measurement to see if there is a new shock that will work.

    If you can get him to answer the phone or return a call. I am guessing 5% chance of that.

    Ok. I will need to take the shock off to measure it accurately, but it appears to be 140 mm eye to eye. I don't even have any idea how to check the shock stroke, but if anyone has any instructions I can try. I love this bike, and I have waited a long time to be able to ride it regularly so I hate to have it apart very long. But...one of the reasons I want to ride it regularly is so I can loose weight. I have become so fat that I am bottoming out that rear shock! So, whatever I can do easily and quickly so I can keep the bike operational would be my preferance.
