Shocks

July 14, 2014

Welcome. Shocks are priced and sold by each unless stated.

Price Range: Dark green price is for used in rough condition. Bright green price is for new condition. Some shocks are available in various used states, ranging from “rough” to “like new”. So the dark green is the lower limit, and the bright green is the upper limit, of the price range. Most will be in between the low and the high, and priced accordingly.

N/A means Not Available. 

 

Damping: Most of these rear shocks do not have hydraulic fluid (oil) damping. Since most are pure springs with no damping, they are very bouncy. Certain high quality ones have some damping, and are less bouncy.

Length: The length is from center of hole to center of hole.

Width: Besides length and eyelet sizes, some shocks are limited in width by the frame or body panels. On Motobecane for example, you can’t put wider shocks even with the same length and eyelets (unless some bodywork is cut off).

Stiffness: You can’t tell how strong a spring is, until you squeeze it. Heavier people need heavier springs, and vice versa. 

Travel: Mopeds are for going slow on smooth roads, and so do not need much suspension travel (how far the wheels can move up or down when hitting a big bump). More travel makes the bike taller, but more able to handle bumps. 2 to 4 inches is typical.

Tomos 221032 (performance)
2008-13  Tomos Streetmate-R

<< This Tomos 221032 shock has more travel, more precision, and other features that make it outperform most other moped shocks. It has some damping, more than other moped shocks, but not as much as a true hydraulic shock. It is also adjustable in spring preload (stiffness) for different rider weights. The longer travel makes bumps feel smaller.
