    Adrenaline bikes in Tustin California had boxes of elastomer for Proflex bikes. They would remove the elastomers off the bike frames and replace them with a shock. Don't know if they still have them, give them a call. At 1-800-579-8932

    What happened to that K2 factory rep who used to post here? Anyway,I almost bought a K2 elastomer frame bike,but I was afraid that a couple years down the road I would not be able to get new hockey pucks,and it's too bad because other than that it was a great bike.

    Try looking on the Tech Section of K2's website (www.k2bikes.com). Lot's of folks with the same problem, depending on the year and model you're usually better off replacing with a shock. Some elastomers can be rejuvenated by nuking them for a few seconds in a microwave (no kidding) - but check the Tech Section first, for more recent tips.

    Good luck with it!

    I have a 757 PROFLEX bike with the same problem.
    Tempe Bike Store in Tempe Arizona told me they had a very limited supply of elastomers. They also recommended replacing the elastomer with a spring from Mountain Speed. see mountainspeed.com
    I modified mine and it seems ok. I am in the process of trying to determine whether or not I can modify the front with a spring.
