    Marzocchi ROCO TST R on Teocali?

    Hi Guys,

    I would like to know some of your thoughts!

    I'm considering getting the ROCO TST R as an upgrade shock for my Mongoose Teocali, first of all, will it even fit in to the space in the frame? and secondly, is it not just overkill? Is the shock "too good" for the bike?

    Why not?

    I think youre on the right track if you like to convert youre Teocali from trail towards freeride. I was on my way of ordering a Roco TST when I got hold of a used Progressive 5th element coilshock for around $50.

    The bike got a little bit more bobier but really plush. I do like that when I ride on really hardcore trails or DH-courses. With a bit more SPV preassure it will fit fine for long epics.

    Make sure the spring diameter arn't to large and that you get stroke and e-e distances right
