just got a rune w/ an elka on it. i noticed that if the rune is at rest (I'm not sitting on it) and i press down on the bike, the elka hits my seat tube. i have a size small rune, is this normal for runes? should i worry about this?

Small frame are really small; I have tried three shocks in the rune and only one of them touched the seattube. The shock thouching was a roco coil, and found it was a bit longer than 7.875... that might be it. An evolver, and now an avy have about a couple of milimeter of spare.

Anyways, with the roco it wasn´t anything i was worried about; I was having the bike sagged most of the time, and when not i noticed the shock de-compressed very slow when approaching to full extension.

FWIW, my shock touching the frame was due to the shock being sligthly longer than it was supposed to be coupled with really thick eyelets.

EDIT: I have a small frame
