    Thirsty Mach 4 rider needs to mount water bottle

    Anyone worked out how to fit a water bottle to a Small Mach 4 - 2012 model?
    Even with a side swipe cage I'm not sure if a bottle will fit into the frame?

    No point purchasing one if it just doesn't fit.

    Anyone here with experience?

    You can turn the RP23 around the other direction. This will allow you to have more room for your water bottle.

    turning the shock around will have no affect on it's function. The RP23 is an air shock, regardless of it's placement on your frame it will function correctly. We install them on the frame with the air canister forward for aesthetic purposes.

    Happy Trails!

    Thanks for the reply but Pfftt... Handlebar mount.
    rather go thirsty.

    I'll try reversing the shock...
    Just need to work out how to take out the bushings that hold the shock in place without damaging them?

    Water can get heavy!
    Want it for those enduro races when were only doing one lap at a time.
    Won't bother with a camel back then.
