It is finally time to get Annette up to speed on the equipment department of her mountain bike. I went to the shop today and installed a new long travel, 150mm, Manitou Nixon Elite shock for Annette. I washed all the parts of the drivetrain, and have a few more things to get done. But here are some shots of the bike with the new shock on it. She will now have a disc brake up front, and a fully adjustable shock. The fork allows travel to be adjusted from 115 to 150mm. As well, it has compression and rebound adjustments also. This is a fork that I used to ride through Europe in 2007. So really, it was just a re-use of a great fork that I had already! Cannot wait to get out there and show her how to tear it up!
