Hey, any of my Giant Trance brethren make the switch to a rear coil shock? (hint: Marzocchi Bomber CR)

Wanted to confirm our rear shock measurements. The manual notes: 185 x 52.5mm

Im interested in making the switch

No. I’m mildly curious though so I’ll follow this with interest.

I put on one my Levo and my mate put one on his Trance. We’ve never looked back. You can even go longer to the 185x55 to give you slightly more travel. I did on my Levo. Just check the clearances on your Trance. (Deflate air shock completely and see what gaps are left between the frame and the tyre) A coil shock changes the feel of the bike considerably. Enjoy!

Excellent & thanks. Is that Bomber shock pictured a 185 x 52.5?
