Can anyone please tell me what the stroke reffers to on a rear shock :oops: and can I have a longer travel shock on my teocali elite 08, currently got about 120mm travel :?: do a fair bit of north shore type riding. Any info/ recommendations would be cool, many thanx Adam :D

    Stroke is the travel of the shock. The leverage on the shock defines the wheel travel.

    You cannot fit a longer shock, nor one with a longer stroke, it is designed to work with one in mind.

    you don't want or need more travel.

    have a think about what bike you have bought and what your really want to do with it.

    is it suitable?
