Transition will occasionally lurk these forums and tell people specifically not to do this.Out of curiosity, has anyone tried a longer stroke in there?
Looks like metric shocks have:
205 x 65 (resultant 158mm travel)
205 x 60 (resultant 146mm travel)
Drop in an offset bushing or two to bring the BB up.
Add fork travel (~3mm rise per 10mm length increase)
That is interesting to hear. I might measure my frame up and see if that will work. The DPS in my Smuggler is bloody horrible.I was curious bc Worldwide Cyclery (as well as other people I've seen locally) have rocked a 210 x 55 shock on the Smuggler, where the stock one is 210 x 50, with no ill effects. That gives the Smuggler 132mm travel, and when paired with a 150mm fork or an Angleset, you get a mini Sentinel.
I will reach out to them as well. Some more progressiveness would be nice and I wouldn't complain about gaining some travel either.Cascade Components said they will be looking at the Tallboy and Sentinel next. This was as of 6 days ago when I asked on Instagram what they'd be doing next.
The Sentinel is a no brainer frame for the cascade treatment. There's a ton of them out there and nearly everyone wants a bit more from the rear end of these great bikes. I hope they do offer it. 150 travel with a bit more progression and a 5mil longer rear end sounds perfect to me.Cascade Components said they will be looking at the Tallboy and Sentinel next.
