Scored a Wilber's - Anyone here?

Was searching for a Fox Twin Clicker or Penske on Ebay for a while, this popped up yesterday and I grabbed it. Looking forward to adding this and a Race Tech spring & valve fork rebuild to the Superhawk this winter.

looks like there is no ride height adjustment ?

it ( rear shock ) is such a large amount of money to spend but once you do you will never question why you did it.

just make sure it has the correct spring on it & enjoy.

i really said to hell with it & bought a brand new penske a couple months ago... my only complaint was it then pointed out how bad the stock fork valving was !

Nice - they are great shocks. I have some friends with them and all very satisfied. It makes a huge difference in both performance and comfort as its so much more compliant. Agree, make sure the spring rate if for you - a good suspension shop can check easily and see if it needs any service. Now just switch the front end, you'll be all set

Thanks for the good info. Supposedly this was built for a Superhawk rider who is 185 pounds. I'm around 190, so it should be aw-ight. Saw them listed for $890 and I got mine for a little over half that. I'm going to have a shop do the Race Tech deal on the forks and then I think I'll be stoked.
