    Not to be a complete a**hole, but who in their right mind drops hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dollars on something that they have absolutely zero information on?

    Just a thought.

    Just by the looks of it though, I'm going to say its from 2000-2003. Did you buy that frame and shock separately?

    looks like a planet x bike

    but more importantly, will the shock work with the frame?

    No disc mounts. Old or crappy or both. I hope you don't plan on DHing or FRing on either the shock or the frame.

    You realize that shocks come in many different eye to eye lengths and strokes, right? Well, how should we know if it would work if we don't know that information for the shock or the frame?

    there is no need to be a arse about it is they mate, came on hear for help not a mouth full of you, so if you arnt gunna be pleasant then don't say anything ALSO IF YOU READ THE ORIGINAL QUESTION I DIDNT ASK IF THEY WOULD WORK TOGETHER I ASKED IF YOU KNEW ANYTHING ON THE FRAME WHICH YOU OBVIOUSLY DONT

    I didn't say anything unpleasant.

    And obviously I know well enough that the frame in question should not be used to DH or FR. Those old SIDs are also rather notorious for blowing. SID was and still is an XC line.

    im gunna sound very stupid right now but wot do you mean by work with that frame
    And I apparently know better than you that the shock may not work with the frame. Shocks come in all different lengths and strokes. Also there are many different bushing sizes.

    doesnt look much like a DH FR bike. is that as far as the swing arm drops? or is it resting on something in the pic.

    like will said no disc mounts, did the same person who sold you the frame sell you the shock?

    and i didnt see anything unpleasent in his reply, hes just trying to get more info to help you out, sorry but you look like the @ss.

    Will wasn't be unpleasant he was stating facts which could be taken either way (the crppy being the mean word or just saying it is not good-take the latter-Will is not that way).....he was being informative and not a jerk.....so don't jump to conclusions.....

    anyway wot do you mean by work with that frame....you can't put any shock on the bike.....you need the right eye to eye and stroke....who told you to buy that shock???.....in addition the bike can't have disc brake rears...that is all he is saying and he doesn't think you can use it for FR/DH....the reason he stated that is some people build stuff up that isn't made to jump and they get hurt when it breaks....maybe just say you over-re-acted and apologize

    BTW welcome to the forum

    ok i'm going to try and sugarcoat this: 2 total donkey purchases. the cash wasted here could have been better applied to some new frame....still rideable i'm sure, but you'll spend a lot of $$$ getting it to roll....don't build a new house on sand.

    WILL i made my self look like an @ss sorry, i took your comments the total wrong way, was planning on using this frame for xc, but i posted on this part of the forum because i thought it may get some information on the frame. if the shock were to fit would this be ideal for xc,

    Bush ID - 8mm

    Bush width - 22mm

    Eyelet to eyelet - 190mm
