*NOTE* an un-tuned shock will not behave as well as the custom tuned shock that is intended to be used on the bike along with the Orion Suspension platform so we do not recommend their use. Shock specs are also listed in the frame specs section of each bike page.
Q - Is the Elkat or Rowl coil shock compatible?
Our custom bash guards are now compatible with this specific chainguide should you wish to run a chainguide/bashguard combo on your Eker full suspension bike. You can purchase them directly from OneUp Components by following this link (ISCG05 -V2)
This commonly available replacement bash makes for easy replacement should you ever need it. They can be found directly from E-13 by following this link (we spec the 32-34t version)
Esker works closely with various manufacturing partners overseas to bring our proprietary frames to life. All of our bikes are designed and assembled at our Flathead Valley, Montana location, and assembly and shipping are out of our Minneapolis, Minnesota location.
