    Default CX Prestige Rear Spheres

    What is the correct type of sphere to the back of the CX Prestige? Is it the mighty big 700cc rebuildable one like the CX wagon got?

    Take a 2 second look at the subframe. Are the arms/frame big and chunky like a wagon, or weeny and light weight like a sedan?? I'm guessing it'll be sedan. You'll have to let us know Obviously the big spheres will not physically fit in the sedan subframe.

    Same as a sedan, only the wagons got the heftier rear swingarms. So normal sphere filled to 40 bar.

    Thanks, I got the standard spheres in, they just need regassing. I got bit confused when Bruce mentioned he had the wagon spheres in it originally ???

    Aftermarket wagon spheres are the "small" sphere as fitted to sedans. Possibly they have different valving and pressure though.
