    So, here it goes,

    Want to buy a spare rear shock for my Morewood Ndiza since my Roco R Air has a habit of leaking air every 6 months or so...

    Anyway, I wanted to know IF the reducers from the Marzo rear shock will fit into Rock Shox rear shock (Bar 2.1 model) without having to buy another kit from RockShox.

    Thanks for helping me!

    the best way is to take a vernier Caliper and measure no?
    Then compare I.D. and see if it fits...using "un étau" press them

    I doubt that its gonna work,but you can tries
    reasons why it won't is because the width of the mounts on the shock are not gonna be the same since the main shaft is most likely shorter therefore the reducers if they do fit, will not completely reduce the whole thing

    Ok, I found out the answer to my question was negative!

    RockShox air shocks (BAR, PEARL) = 12.00 mm eyelets

    Marzo, Fox, Cane Creek (other companies I'm pretty sure) = 12.7 eyelets ('1/2)
