New Manitous have the brace behind the wheel

They say they can produce a stiffer shock by moving the brace behind the wheel.

It looks there might not be enough room for the shock sleeve to clear the frame if mounted the other way, but that's just a guess.

My question is.....the Ebay bike shows the rear shock mounted one way....the same bike at tomac.com shows the shock mounted differantly.

I've always seen chamber mounted above the piston...

on all rear shocks....but I don't know if flipping them upside down would be an issue. It is difficult to see if it is even the same shock because the body is obstructed by the frame.
