A 7.5" i2i x 2" stroke should fit and will give you 6" of rear travel. This setup will be fine with a 4" fork.shmrcksean said:I have an older MC San Andreas (circa 93-94) still in great shape. I'm looking to upgrade the frame and start riding it again. So far I put a 4" Marzocchi MX Comp on the front and I am looking to put a new shock on the rear. It currently has a Noleen coil that is 5.5" i2i.
I'm guessing the travel on the Noleen is 3-3.5". My question is...what size shock can I put on the rear without altering the bike geometry too much. Would a 6 or 6.5" inch be ok or should I stick with 5.5"? I'd like to swap out the old coil for an air shock too.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
