I got the Nitron R1 with the fitted pin adjuster . As it has fixed internal bushes (different sizes) it is impossible to swop over without swopping bushes over (I don’t have a press ) . I agree though it would be easier if the adjuster was at the bottom . But by removing the side panel and using the pin it’s easy enough . Certainly a lot easier than OE.

How does the Wilbers adjust ?

I fitted a custom built Nitron .  But the machined peg , adjustment to preload is easy. Both damping adjusters are on the bottom . I personally don’t like the “external adjusters”
But as above the difference is night and day . Partially down to the OE shock being cheap as any aftermarket product will be a major improvement. I also re valved the front .
