The Element team appears to have basically the same frame as the 90/70 etc .

It has the same rear shock as the 90/70 ,RP23, so why does it only have 3" of travel ?
Can anybody explain ? Can it be modified to provide the 4" of the 90/70 etc . ?
Thanks !!

stroke?

4 inches? what?:eekster:

I measured my 2003 element, and got 1.5!

Since the shock is the same, is it more compressed at its neutral position on the team one, than it is on the 90?
1.5 what, stroke? :confused:

I'm pretty sure the eye-to-eye and stroke are different on the 70/90 Elements as opposed to the Team bikes (for the 2007 models, not sure about 2003 but I think all Elements were 80mm travel back then???)

Yes, for 09, the Team bikes go to a 100mm travel platform, same as the other Element bikes. I'm pretty sure the those bikes go to a carbon version as well... :thumbsup:
