I recently broke the rear shock on my mountain bike and was a "little"
shocked (no punn) at the cost of a replacement part.
Considering that I only use the bike to commute, I was wondering if it is
possible to replace the shock with a steel bracket converting the bike into
a hardtail. (Pitty, but a sign of the times...) I am a little concerned about
stress on the rest of the frame though.
