Bitubo Suspension Group Buy

I've had some members message me about info for Bitubo Suspension, so I figured I would put together a group buy for guys! So here's the deal.

Bitubo ECH29 Gas Pressurized Cartridges w/springs - Retail $1849.95
Bitubo XXF31 Shock w/spring - Retail $1624.95
Install with seals and oil - Retail $190.00
Total - $3664.90

Group Buy Price - $2100.00 for the ECH29 cartridge kit and XXF31 shock.

And I'll throw in fork install, seals, and return shipping for FREE!

I would need a minimum of 5 people. And ALL gen's are available!


One concern I've seen is support for Bitubo. We are full suspension shop and provide full service for Bitubo and have parts on hand.

Here is a link for some pics. Bitubo Porn

And some specs

BITUBO ECH 29 Nitrogen Charged SBK RACING Fork Cartridge

SPECIFICATIONS:
Hydraulic system with FPS system ® (Patent Shock) Ř27mm Aluminum piston
10mm Pump rods with anti-friction surface coating
Mechanical limit switch with a polyurethane pad
CRSI steel springs by heat treatment, shot peening process and final settlement.
Fork top cap with integrated hydraulic preload
Independently adjustable compression and rebound damping
Airlock coaxial (Patent Shock)
Aluminum cartridge body with internal anti-friction surface coating
Separate Lubrication for the hydraulic and external systems
ECH29 adjustment range:
Spring preload (range, 12 mm in 6 laps)
Adjustable compression damping (in 24 clicks)
Adjustable rebound (in 24 clicks)
CE System: The CE system allows quick spring changing and a new and unique way of dismantling the cartridges with the supplied tool without having to remove the fork from the bike. This system makes it easy to change the bike set-up by engineers at the track.
LC System: Each cartridge has a high percentage of special light alloys, which lowers the weight from the previous YCE



THE EVOLUTION of this shock has culminated in an overall weight decrease, using an aluminum body, which has always been a very important feature in Racing for better handling response to the rider’s needs. In addition to new set-ups, even more race-ready, and an upgrade aimed at better performance and adjusting simplicity of the length and hydraulic spring preload adjustment.

INNOVATION is in the internals of the shock, with new technical solutions for improving the damping coefficient and increasing damping consistency at high temperature. The Ř14mm rod improves sliding, while the Ř30mm piston reduces the mass of the fluid in motion. These improvements have produced a reduction of inertial forces, and therefore an immediate control of the suspension oscillations. Particular attention is paid to increase ergonomics and precision of the adjusters, which are all positioned in the upper portion of the shock.

TARGET is to give the rider the precise control and maximum grip increase,
as well as even tire wear which is provided by the immediate damping force.
This provides confidence to the rider in the curve even at extreme lean angles, during fast direction changes, under hard acceleration while providing excellent stability of the rear, even under the most extreme braking, no matter the track or surface condition.

ADJUSTABLE LENGTH Particular care is paid to the lower attachment in order to reduce un-sprung weight from the shock which is already among the lightest in the market. The range of ride height adjustment is 8 mm, allowing the rider to customize the bike’s geometry.

how often do these type of fork cartridges need to be serviced?

The shock is awesome. I don't have those forks but the shock was a huge upgrade. This combo would be well worth it!

The manual says to check them annually if I remember correctly.
