Shock recommendations? - Failed Konis

No, I didn't try to get replacements. I was so disappointed with their loss
of damping in such a short time, I figured why go through the crap of
getting them replaced, just to maybe have the same problem again. Same with
having to remove them to adjust them. Some other listers had negative
results with Konis also, so I just dumped them. But, then again, others have
had good results I guess. Just stating my experience. They did ride pretty
good half way through their short lifetime.

all accurate observers of the conduct of mankind; and the inference is
founded upon obvious reasons.
