It seems that bottomless rings (the red rubber bands) are currently sold out from the distributor, and I haven't found any stock at local shops. Is anyone aware of a shop that has some available?

As an alternative, does anyone have 3-5 rings they'd be willing to part with?

I was thinking the same thing, but read somewhere that you can use rubber bands

You might not want to use rubber bands as they may deterioate and make a mess.

This also works and ensures a well lubed shock for it's entire lifetime.

Kinetic had them last time I was there.

I use the hard plastic DVO ones in mine. You don't have to remove the shock to use these. Vorsprung might have them, mine came with my Topaz.

Thanks

Using the Andrew Major/Jeff Bryson approach I see.
