about to come into winter down under... I've got my first duallie and wondering are rear shock boots worth it? if so which ones would fit a fox air shock on a giant anthem (I've looked at an Endura and a lizardskins one on Chain Reaction)?

    Just a good way of holding dirt against the shock to grind away I'd have said.

    I don't know anyone using one round here (very muddy UK).

    Dont go the expense of buying a shock boot, just get a sheet of 80 grade wet and dry and give your shock a good rub down with it to get the same effect as a wet winters use of a shock boot.

    Tried one when they were fashionable about 10 years ago took lots of anodising off before I realised.
