Just wondering how the rockers effect the bike other than an extra inch of travel. I'm considering it for my 03 AC1. How does handling, shock leverage, ride quality change?

Any comments appreciated.

Hmmm, where to start with the probs, well let me start off with the fact that i have BETD's likage which boost the travel up to 7.5, i weigh 160 and with the rockshox shock i tried to run a 800 lb spring and it was still undersprung, i upgraded to a manitou 6 way with a 600lb spring and 150 psi in the chamber set as progressive as possible and i still couldn't run it at max travel, the links will raise ur bb 1" giving u a steaper headtube angle, so unless u have a triple crown fork i wouldn't suggest it, oh one more thing, with all that added stress i ended up with a worn out pivot, the bearing on the driveside chainstay pushed right out. I think thats about it
