Question, how do you determine the size of your rear shock for replacement?

What bike is it?  Measuring can be deceiving esp if it is an air shock that needs service.

-make sure the shock is extended and nothing is putting pressure on it when you measure it
-even though a replacement shock might fit (same i2i), the stroke length has to be the same as well or you get funky things going on. (has to do with ratios and frame movement)

Hi thephat,
The bike is my Fezzari. It has a Rock Shox Bar 2.1 on it now.  I would like to upgrade to a Fox Float RP23.
