Mine has the swing link and stiffness or shock bind has not been an issue for me.kenai said:I have been searching for previous threads on this bike, but can't find any. Does anyone have experience w/ this bike? Are there any threads out there I have been missing?
Yeah, in your case that swing link on the shock shaft will force the Ti stays to flex a little, all the while keeping all the side loads away from your shock. Actually the swing link on my GF 293 does a similar thing to the CF/Al stays on it... makes them flex a little, that is.jfkbike2 said:Mine has the swing link and stiffness or shock bind has not been an issue for me.
Useless without pictures.surfk9 said:mtmiller,
I've got the latest version of the La Ruta. Actually, a prototype Daryl built for me a little different from the others. There is no binding of the shock as it pivots on the front attachment point sufficiently to make the suspension work. I get full travel out of my Fox RP23 rear shock, probably translates to about 3 inches. No problems what so ever after about 500 miles. Just gets better. Better then my Asylum and way better then my Fisher 292.
