On my Godet Egli, the rear shocks are Maxton. The springs are 180 mm long. I hope this helps.Which rear damper length is recommended on a standard Egli frame with 19" rear wheel (90 Kg driver, standard road use only, no racing)? I am interested in a pair of IKON dampers. Which type will fit best?
with standard silencer, 18" wheel and a damper longer than 320mm, the spindle nut can hit the silencer I heard. Do you use a standard silencer?I grabbed what I thought were the Egli Units when I rebuilt the Egli Comet (in 1000 frame) last winter but they were 12" (300mm) and were too short here is a picture with them on (and the line I drew at the time) I had to buy new ones! it doesnt look too bad but the chain could caress the SA pivot. One day I will get to get some shake down runs on it....
