I'm the happy owner of a new/old Bullit (2000/01?)!! My first SC bike, and so far I'm thrilled. I've only just put it all together (I just bought the frame & shock), after stripping and polishing it...just waiting on the stickers from Santa Cruz, then I'll post a pic of it.

I've been looking at photos of Bullits here, and there doesn't seem to be a concensus on the orientation of the shock...I have a Vanilla RC, and when I got it I mounted it with the piggyback up and at the back, but I see them, down, forward etc. Is there a difference in shock function depending on the way it's mounted, or is it purely personal preference?

There's no big issue of mounting direction of most all rear shocks I'm aware of outside of the issue of clearance with the frame/suspension members and having reasonable access to the external adjusters, air chambers, etc.
