3 Steps to Buy the Right Shock

Buying shocks isn't always easy. Don't forget you can always message us online at the bottom right of the screen or call us directly at 1-800-369-7469 ext. 4801

1. Get the Eye to Eye and Stroke Measurements: If you are replacing a shock, find the old shock specifications from the manufacturers website. Using the part number of the shock you should be able to find it (most of the time). If that doesn't work and you have a Vernier Caliper (you probably don't) measure from the center of the top eye to the bottom eye. Do the same with Stroke but measure from where the rod goes into the shock body to where the eye starts on the rod. Again if you're lost call, email or message us. Take those measurements and match them to the options above. Select and Add to Cart.

You can always call, email, message us if you need help. We will reply as soon as possible.

2. Decide if you need a spring and add that: You may have a spring that you know you can use from your old shock feel free to use that if you are comfortable. To get the best performance and to keep things fresh we recommend a new Marzocchi Spring ($24.95) and we will show you how to buy one that fits properly!  

So you decided you need a spring. What you need is the rear travel of your bike in inches (best to get it from your bike manufacturer's website) and put that number into the first box below. Then use the Stroke measurement from #1 above and enter that in the second box. Finally put in your weight into the final box. Press Calculate and save the Coil Spring Weight (lbs) number.

Coil Spring Weight (lbs):

3. Add the Right Spring: Shocks need springs, get a nice new Bomber Steel Spring for $24.95. Take the number from the Coil Spring Rate and the Stroke from #1. Match those two numbers with the springs we offer here.

Coil is back, and not just for gravity riders. Supple on the small bumps with a smooth stroke to eat up rock gardens and big hits, you can rely on Bomber CR coil to lose none of its exemplary performance over the longest descents. Whether you’re looking to breathe new life into your old ride or searching for a rear shock for your new bike you can set and forget, the Bomber CR is your low-maintenance, high-performing coil solution.

How to Buy the Right Shock

Buying a shock doesn't have to be confusing. Follow these steps to find the right one:

1. Determine if you need Trunnion or Standard Eyelets.

Shocks are bolted to the frame using one of two methods – eyelet mounts or trunnion mounts. Eyelet mounts run a bolt through the ends of the shock, whereas Trunnion shock have bolts that thread into the shock at the reservoir end. To determine which type you need for your bike, look up your bike model on the manufacturer website – the shock will either have the word ‘Trunnion’ listed beside the shock measurement or not. If it doesn’t say Trunnion, your shock uses standard eyelet mounts.

2. Find your Eye to Eye and Stroke measurements.

These two measurements are essential to buying the right shock. Both numbers can be found on your bike manufacturers website. Find where the specifications for your bike are listed and look at the row for Rear Shock. Beside the Brand and model, the manufacturer will list two numbers: the first one is the eye-to-eye and the second is the stroke length.

Metric example: 205 (eye-to-eye) x 65 (stroke)
Imperial example: 7.875" (eye-to-eye) x 3" (stroke)

If your bike is more than three years old, the manufacturer may not list the shock measurements on the model page. If not, use a Vernier Caliper to measure from the center of the top of the shock to the bottom eye – that’s your eye-to-eye. Second, measure from where the stanchion goes into the body to the bottom of the stanchion. That’s your stroke length.

3. Gather Mounting Hardware.

Mounting hardware is the collection of spacers you need to ensure the shock you buy fits your bike. If you’re replacing the shock that is currently on your bike, you can remove the hardware from that shock and press it into your new Bomber CR. If you don’t have the tools to make that switch, you can buy mounting hardware here.

Mounting hardware is dictated by your bike manufacturer. You can usually find it in the Owners Manual, but sometimes it can be tricky to find. If you need help determining what type you have, our friends at FOX created this helpful guide.

4. Add a spring.

If you’re buying a Bomber CR coil shock, you’re going to need a coil spring as well. Use the calculator when you add your shock to cart to determine which spring will suit your weight and bike the best.

5. Get Sendy!

Coil Me Consistent 

Shuttling all day or lapping the bike park ‘til close? The Bomber CR maintains a plush, planted feel that stays consistent during long shred sessions, regardless of rapid elevation or temperature changes. The perfect coil companion to your Bomber 58, Z1, or Z1 Coil fork.

High performance. Simple construction.  

There’s no climb switch or array of dials on the Bomber CR. This is a rugged coil shock that subs the bells and whistles for durability and simplicity. Just set your sag, click in your rebound and go ride.

The Bomber CR: A whole new world  

There’s simply no substitute for the plush feeling of coil suspension. Fewer seals mean less stiction to initiate travel. More small bump sensitivity and a smooth, predictable stroke for the biggest hits. Curious if coil is for you? Looking for a secondary coil shock as a backup or a workhorse for that bike park trip? The Bomber CR is your affordable ticket to the magic carpet ride. 

This shock is by far the best performance upgrade for the money that I have ever experienced in almost a decade of riding.

Worldwide Cyclery

…more grip, more traction and more comfort at a fraction of the price of super high-end competitors. As a gateway to the addictive performance of a coil spring, it’s a great option.

mbr.co.uk

Bomber CR just might be the perfect coil upgrade on a budget.   

If you want to experiment with a coil on your bike without emptying your wallet, this is the best way to do so – hands down.
