Rated 2 out of 5 by Sueeky little shock... Got this shock with Cube AMS 110 after about three months it started squeaking. It works well but the squeaks are very annoying. Any suggestions for why it is squeaking? 31 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by buon prodotto fa pienamente il suo sporco lavoro,alla faccia dei più blasonati marchi e tanto più costosi. 20 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok bang for bucks, but you get what you pay for... Received my Manitour Radium Expert 2013 yesterday. Top notch CRC service as usual, 9 days to Canada and this time it skipped customs/taxes so a pleasant surprise, 5/5 for service as usual. That being said, I rated the PRODUCT 3/5 and CRC has not much to do with this. Bang for bucks, I don't think you can go wrong. A shim-stack platform for sub-200$ brand new is pretty good. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Overall it looks OK but I found the built quality to be so-so. It's not he best looking shock around and make my awesome Ghost frame look a bit cheap with this shock installed... **IMPORTANT** The damper body is BLACK hard anodized as per description, but different from the CRC product picture as well as Manitou website. I wondered for a minute if I really got a 2013 expert as per product description, or a 2011 RL. Manitou confirmed the 2013 expert is indeed using a BLACK hard-anod damper body. In my opinion, black dampers make a shock look cheap, I wished it had the same damper color as pictured. Next, the lockout lever. It does work, as in, it's functional. It does lock/unlock the shock. BUT, the feeling is not quite right. When you turn it off, it does block at some point, but when you unlock it, you can turn the lever all around counterclockwise indefinitely. At first I thought something was broken, but no, looks like it was "designed" that way. I thought it felt cheap. The friction/force required to unlock the shock is not too bad, but definitely lacking a little bit of friction to lock it. In other words, it seem pretty easy to accidentally turn it on (lock the shock). The valve is easy to operate and conveniently located. The valve cap screws on tightly and nI don't think there's any chance of losing it. The valve operates as expected and I didn't hear any leaking while pumping air in. The sag "ring" is black, and fitted to a black damper body doesn't help in quickly checking the sag limit on the shock. I found it hard to see where it was at while standing on the pedals. A yellow or red sag ring would have helped here. The rebound adjuster does its job and has a nice clicking feeling to it, but once the shock mounted on the bike, its pretty hard to adjust it. It comes with a small product manual that is pretty useless... No pressure table, no detailed specs on the internal... With all that being said, I'm not sure yet if I'll keep it. I guess for $195, brand new, shipped, its a pretty good deal, but I probably had my expectations a bit high on this shock. On the other hand, I did read some excellent review about it so I'm really tempted to use it and upgrade to something better in a couple years. I have not made my final decision yet. I'm in the process of testing if it holds air well or if it leaks right now so I can't yet comment on this. I just put some air in it and we'll check the pressure later today. So, 5/5 for CRC service, 3/5 for the shock. The shock rating may go a little higher if I decide to keep it and really like it... 27 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good price great little shock for the price has all the basic adjustments you need and performs great 19 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Get it with cube ams 130.Own it for last7 months,works really well,no problem with it at all. 25 December 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by qualita' prezzo ottimo sicuramente questo è un prodotto che come rapporto qualita prezzo penso non abbia rivali....a una buona escursione è in piu il blocco e comodissimo, l'unica pecca e che non è possibile installare il blocco a manubrio. 27 November 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by I actually have the swinger 3 way (also from CRC). I had no such bushing problems from new but when the main bush failed I replaced with AMACHETE (amachete@amachete.com). Contact eduardo. They will supply needle roller bearing with new pivot bolt (to match needle bearings). They are not only a MUCH stronger for ever solution, they also massivly improve the shock performance. I'd say don't shoot CRC but buy roller bearings, bushings are just RUBBISH! 11 November 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by No bushings included Well, it´s the usual - CRC has not included the extra yet necessary parts - It´s always great to buy something new and then find you will have the headache of locating bushings. I give the stars to CRC and not Manitou. Thanks to them I can not even use my product fresh out the box, and this was not at all clear in the product description. Please Get it in Gear Hombres! I´ve been through this before with a Manitou product (same shock only smaller and the 2010 model), though once working it is a great shock. Too bad I won´t have lockout still on my trailbike, bought this to replace the Fox RP2 propedal (2009 model) because AM bikes need lockouts! EspecIALLY if you, like me, weigh over 90 kg and ride a Kona. A Horst-link rear end may not need lockout for AM but I do not know for sure, just know that KONA needs lockouts on the DAWG frames. 10 August 2012

Answer: 
The 'size' reference on the listing is in relation to the 'Stroke' of the shock. The measurement is the length of the Shaft protruding from the shocks Air Can.

This measurement should be as close as possible (preferably identical) to the factory sizing to keep the frame geometry correct.

Answer: 
Just to add to the previous answer - the stroke is the actual travel of the shock. You need to make sure the stroke measures the same as your old shock otherwise you risk things like the tyre hitting your frame on full travel.

To measure the stroke of your old shock, let all the air out if its an air shock, or take the spring off if its coil and measure the full travel of the shock (difference between fully extended and fully compressed)

Hope this helps

Answer: 
All the Manitou shocks as of 2011 are using the larger 12.7mm (also known as 1/2") hardware. You can buy according to the width and bolt size you require (either 6 or 8mm); we have these listed as 14mm and 15mm respectively.
