    Does someone really think the airpump is worth $145? I'd have taken one at that price as well. Should have listed it on ADV Flea Market.

    I saw it on eBay. I thought hmmm...I should buy it...but then I thought...eh, mine hasn't broken yet.

    It was probably just that no one NEEDED a Conti Air Shock when you happened to list it. :wink:

    FYI after I placed my order a couple weeks ago he had only the combi version in black available to sell (and just a few of those left). No more clear/ white tanks....

    I invested in the Conti version of the tank, but must look down the road at possibly needing to replace with an aftermarket shock. Markus designed the special tank to provide clearance for the Ohlins reservoir, which is FIXED.

    Looking at the Wilburs (with its remote reservoir), it appears it could work with the Markus/ Ohlins Tank...

    Anybody have experience with this?

    Hello Kurt, I am using Wilbers shock with Markus tank (conti version). I don't have the model with the extra reservoir, but because it is remote, I think you won't face any problems. Even with out it, I am very satisfied. I think it costs around 400-450 euros. With the reservoir 200-300 more..

    I bought a spare conti shock to use with my conti tank. Its good to know there is an option for a Wilburs that will fit the Markus Conti tank!

    with a little delay I'm back!
    Yes I still produce the tanks, and sell them directly to customers or to AQ or Holan.pl

    If any one have questions.......

    Kind regards from Garmisch-Partenkirchen the place of the BMW-Bikermeeting

    I have just mounted Markus tank (Ohlins version), and I would like to ask guys -who have this tank too- , if is there enough space for rear wheel, when you are jumping hard...? Like this:

    Yes with the stock wheel and a Dulop d606. I just mounted an 18" wheel with the D908, I'm a bit concerned about that one. We will see. :huh

    Hi Friends,

    Any news out there about the best (current) aftermarket shock that's compatible with the Markus Conti tank?

    ...is there a "race grade" shock with a remote reservoir?

    Thank you,

    Kurt
