Hey guys!

I'm about to buy a Enduro 06 frame from my friend.

I want to get more travel on the rear and ride it like a SX trail with more travel on the front.
Maybe 180mm or something....

Is there any chance to get more travel on the rear? And how to do?

I'm asking because the DHX5 Air is completly wracked.

Thanks a lot
Regards
Reno

Standard shock is weird-ass 8.75*2.5. Replace with 8.75*2.75 coil - 10% or 15mm more travel. Heaps of threads on this from 2005 -2007.

Hi,

thanks for information!

Is there any chance to get 180mm of travel with the longer 240mm shock lenght and the SX links?

Thank you

If I would go 8.75*2.75,

what spring do I need with vivid shock?

I weight about 70kg including gear.

Thanks a lot

300~350lb spring ? I've just searched the forum & the original threads on this topic have gone, but there are still plenty of later threads. Search 'Enduro coil' in the Specialised forum & you'll get plenty of info. There are 4 or 5 issues - main one being some frames get clashing between swing link & main frame but this can be overcome. Never heard of a 180mm conversion - sounds dodgy.
