    In need of at least 1 new shaft for the GYTR shock rebuild. Looking for the hollow type so I can have rebound control. Cannondale has my shocks, but said none of his sources have shafts for these anymore.

    So asking the TY family if anyone knows where to get new ones, or if anyone has 1 used one I could buy.

    I will try Hygear. Carver doesn't have anything.

    Google also brought up Shock Tec in Canada. I emailed them a number of days ago, but didn't get a reply. Will try calling them too. Anyone dealt with them before?

    i would think you should be able to find some of those shocks somewhere. Did you try Barn Of Parts?

    might just be easier to just buy one shock instead of trying to get a shaft made. I'm sure the price wouldn't be that much more anyways. good luck

    Yes nobody is going to make these since rebound requires them to be hollow. He really needs two since the one complete shock the shaft is bent. Only matter of time before that breaks too. We were just hoping someone knew of a source.

    you can get them made an made out better material get hold Bruce scharder sorry about spelling but Tom from ty may have contact info he did a set of shock for me and had better shafts
    made for my ohlins because they where not made and more but cost was not bad like 60-70 per shaft. also try a Canada shock rebuilt company they may have or still can get the parts.
