- A great shock for racing or communting
I own a 2009 Adly SF50 and retrofitted this shock in November 2018. Not all cheaper shocks fit as well length-wise, but with its length and pre-load adjustability it's easy to set up without the rear wheel touching the ground when the bike's on its main stand. This shock is very firm - especially if you're only commuting on it, but once the pre-load is tweaked to suit your riding style and body weight it's perfect. It does soften up very slightly in the first while, but I found a 1/4 turn of pre-load brought it right back to where I needed it. If'you're racing it's easy to firm it up to suit, or wind it back a bit for your commute. All the adjustment tools you need are in the box. I found with my Adly that the firm rear end made the front feel very soft by comparison, so by changing the front shock oil viscosity to 20 SAE really balanced it out nicely. I highly recommend this shock regardless of whether you're racing or commuting. It's a bit pricey but it's worth the investment for the performance.
