The main measures in the geometry of a bike is the head angle and the bottom bracket height which define the behavior during cornering. Even a half-degree angle or half a centimeter below, the change is huge!
88 Components Offset Bushings allow to reduce the length (eye-to-eye) of the rear shock which leads to reduction of the head angle and the bottom bracket height. This increases stability at high speed and steep sections and improves cornering. Offset Bushings are easy and inexpensive way to achieve the perfect geometry of your bike.
The Offset Bushings use the same technology as the standard ones. Precisely made of aluminum with a polished surface for lower friction and anodized for greater durability. In combination with our Polymer Bearings with low Coefficient of friction, the performance of the suspension could be increased.
Suitable for replacement of worn bushings. If you need complete replacement, you can order an Offset Bushing Kit.
Expected change depending on the diameter of the bolt (the results are for pair of bushings):
- 6mm diameter ~ 1.5° head angle adjustment
- 8mm diameter ~ 1.0° head angle adjustment
- 10mm diameter ~ 0.5° head angle adjustment
- A single bushing
- Fast and easy change
- Material: Aluminium
- Polished surface
- Hard Anodized
- Low weight
- Color: Black
- Length: 22mm, 22.20mm

Note: The price is for 1 piece. For the most notable change, we recommend a pair of bushings. If necessary the bushings could be reversed and used to increase the head angle and the bottom bracket height. We highly recommend installing new Polymer Bushings when changing the shock hardware!
