Manitou McLeod Rear Shock

Manitou McLeod Rear Shock

This shock is for my Banshee Spitfire; It is 200mm eye-to-eye with a 56mm stroke.

The bushings on Manitou shocks are now the same size as Rockshox and Fox, so to mount this on my Spitty I used some Rockshox mounting hardware in 25.4mm width for the front and 40mm width for the rear.

The shock weighs 281g.
