I have this Manitou Evolver ISX6 Rear Shock:
It was removed from another bike (Cannondale Prophet) I am now considering whether to fit it to my Yeti 575 (2005-2007) in place of the current Fox RP2 or to sell it on.
I don't know the history of the shock so although it looks in good cosmetic condition I guess I will have to get it serviced before trusting it on a two week holiday and I will also need new reducers to fit it to the Yeti as the current ones are different widths.
My main question though is to ask whether it is actually any good? I can't find that many reviews. It has a lot of dials and looks the business but will I really notice the difference from the existing shock that has never offended me in the past. It will also mean no chance of fitting a waterbottle, not a problem normally but I do fit one occasionally when doing a mtb-marathon event.
So what advice? Sell it on and pocket the £ (more realistically spend it on something else bike!) or pay for a service and reducers?
