    If what you have in the back is a Noleen please go and get a new shock A.S.A.P.

    I don't know what size is your frame but my was large and with a Vanilla RC 8 3/4 e 2 e I was able to get 7" of sweet travel....
    Try to get a shock longer than the original to upgrade your rear travel...
    Good luck...

    dont bother upgrading the shock, ride it till it dies a friend of mine used to have one, he bent the swing arm once, cracked it in a couple places another time, and sheered off the headtube another time thier good lil frames for the price but just dont sink yer cash into anything you dont want on another frame

    i dunno if you've read my other posts, but im looking for a hardtail to replace this frame... simplicity! and cheapness! lol what do you think of the azonic steelhead, or the banshee scorrico (SP) ?

    That is a universal size. Same for my Gemini. I did fit an 8.0"x2.25" 5th coil on mine. Just longer than stock.
