    Specialized Epic Shock with Brain

    I am looking for a replacement rear shock for a circa 2003 Specialized Epic- see picture- I would prefer a replacement rather than a third party rebuild. Any help is appreciated....

    You probably won't find a working replacement. These can be rebuilt by any competent suspension centre and most have a bin of parts from dead ones.

    In the US, Traxxion Dynamics does old brain shocks so you might check with them. I can't imagine you'd find a NOS to buy. Any you find will be used and possibly rebuilt one or more times already.
    Do the math.

    Risse racing is the least expensive place I found for a rebuild. I did not try them yet, though:

    Super sketchy on and off business. There was a time when they were fairly reliable back in the 00s, but I wouldnít advise going this route. If you do, use a CC, nail them down to a delivery date, save all transactions and correspondence (donít discuss over the phone) and immediately dispute the charges if the date passes. They have delivered in the past, but itís been very hit and miss since the 00s.

    Sorry, the only thing that I have left around here is the 2005 version which is 5mm shorter and hits on the weld area of the lower mount.
