    SB66 - mounting hardware for Vivid Air

    Hi

    Im about to swap out the rp23 for a Vivid Air shock. What kind of mounting hardware do I need for the Vivid, does everything I need come with the new shock?

    Thanx.

    You have a LOT to look forward to. This is a really badass shock for the SB. I loved my Vivid Air when I had the SB-66

    I went for low tune and 21.8mm mounting hardware which fit like a glove.
    The shock comes with a pump, and I urge you to look at the vivid air setup video from the service pages at SRAM | Incremental enhancements. Perpetual improvements. Revolutionary Innovation., as it tells you how to pump the solo air properly.

    So what you need is:
    Shock
    Mounting hardware

    Then; SHRED!

    Thanx for feedback. The mounting hardware is this? Rock Shox Rear Shock Mount Hardware 1/2"x 1/2" | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
    Do I need any special tools for mounting this?

    What is the difference between the tunings of the shock? Can only find correct size with med. tune at the moment.

    Thanx.

    Found that the Vivid Air comes with this tunings;

    2.0-2.4 : 1 Leverage Ratio (Low Tune)
    2.3-2.8 : 1 Leverage Ratio (Mid Tune)
    2.7-3.1 : 1 Leverage Ratio (High Tune)

    Found the leverage ratio for sb66 to be 2,4. So both the low and mid tune should be good. Please correct me if Im wrong..!

    Re: SB66 - mounting hardware for Vivid Air

    It depends, as it is also depending on the curve of the suspension design.

    Are you Norwegian?
