I've saw a review somewhere around here with one retrofitted for a Motolite and I have to say i'm intrigued. I've heard grumblings of a Roco TST that would fit the ML i2i measurements... anyone know when this might be available? I was just going to go with a DHX but the PP switch (TST or whatever it is) is more appealing to me than a dial.

FM is the man with the goods. I've got mine all mounted and ready. If this damn Colorado weather would just cooperate:madman: :madman: I should send mine to FM so he can at least break it in for me.

Extremely happy with the rocos! Not much else to add that isn't covered in Geo's link. Just pick up the lavoratory gaskets to limit the stroke and you're all set. :thumbsup:
Heh, I saw EBX's trail building thread. Glamour photo mate !~! Wild Mas Hess's photo is a classic beer add for a real mountain bike mag, not even a chainsaw guard :crazy: .

Well, it's mid january and nothin'... I'll give it till spring before doing my own mod. Thanks guys.

Just get the coil. Coil rides so much nicer than air, I'm never going back!

How does it balance an air fork?
I think it woudl be a non-issue, but it really depends on what air fork and how you tune it.

I've tried both coil and air shocks on a few different frames, and for some reason the difference is more drastic on the motolite. The air is killer for that firm pedaling awesome climbing XC feel. But the motolite feels so much plusher with a coil in back. I prefer the coil on this bike.
