I repair a lot of Fox Alps Rear shocks. The downside of these shocks is that they have two major failure modes.
- The strut cracks and the shock will not hold air anymore. Sometimes I can replace the strut with a used one. Used ones are getting harder and harder to find so the this is becoming harder to to.
- The Eyelets crack. Same story here.
If you have an older Cannondale this can be a real bummer because nothing else fits in place of the clevis mount Fox.
So if your shock can’t be repaired this is a really nice to keep your bike going!
