SRAM sent over some news of an agreement among six suspension companies (Cane Creek, DVO, RockShox, Manitou, XFusion, and SR Suntour.) on metric shock sizing. Hopefully we hear more good things about this agreement in the future so that shock compatibility and frame issues quickly become an issue of the past.
Today, March 31st 2016 marks a very important day where six of the bicycle industry’s main suspension manufactures, including RockShox, are making an announcement concerning the future of rear shocks and bicycle frame design. Each of the brands involved in this will announce their specific plans separately according to their own product release timing schedule. We are excited to be a part of this and for the improvements it will bring to suspension products and bicycles in the near future, which have been broadly recognized throughout our industry.
