Certainly save a few pennies for the pimp lightweight kit that could go on it and if using 57mm stroke shock will have a nice low ratio.
yes but it will be a good bit more than 140mm using a 57mm stroke and simons obsessed with travel too much being the root of all evil etc. also not sure how the AM would fair with 32's but it would be worth tryingGarry AM said:Certainly save a few pennies for the pimp lightweight kit that could go on it and if using 57mm stroke shock will have a nice low ratio.
He was looking for something a little lighter and he didn't like how high he sat up in the bike at 140 he loved more in the 150 to 160 he felt he was raked out more. He has a FR and felt they where to close to each other too. He know thinking of getting a AFR but concerned about weight.The_Lecht_Rocks said:ncig : what were the issues ?
i'm going to amend mine this weekend to run 140mm FLOATS on a 51mm Monarch just to see what happens.
Though running the AM with less travel makes a greater difference. 180 mm vs <150mm travel makes alot when sagged.derekr said:Whats wrong with the AM as is? You always moan about pedal strike and lower forks will make it even worse? Just a thought; not an invitation to a battle!
