Is it possible to put a longer shock on an AC to increase travel, and if so what size/sizes will fit and not cause any frame-on-frame contact? I am aware of linkage upgrades, but am interested in shock options...if there are any...
Not sure about the shock since if you stick a longer one on, the swingarm might bottom on the bottom bracket shell, but there are linkage upgrades floating around on the net. There's usually a lot of them on ebay.
Well I know someone who is running a 7 7/8th X 2.25 on his, with no clearance issues at all. It hardly changed the geometry at all, but like mentioned before, you will need to run a heavier spring. That should give you an extra .75 inches of travel.
