Well, the Pike Team coil wasn't a good match for the rear.

Currently on the bike is a Manitou Minute 2 with 100mm travel. May swap to a Fox Talas RLC fork,

Just mounted the Avid Juicy 7 Carbon, now only waiting for the X.O short Black Box Carbon mech. Should be finished this weekend

short CS?

Anyone else notice the main pivot position?
Whoa- nice spotting.
probably has really short chainstays so the more foreward pivot gains tire clearance around the yoke.

Since it looks like a Flux bb rotating it clockwise won't alter the shock mount since it's not 1 piece.

Well no longer or in this case; shorter then my Small Mongoose'd XCE chainstays!
It's more the position of the pivot and those shorter rockers...

Say Christiaan... lend me your rockers!

ROCK ME BABEE'...

final trim

Pike Dual Air set at 85mm of travel. Turner said the frame was ment for 110-110mm of front travel, but that was way to long, now it finally feels good!
