I think it's an excellent idea. a proper XC/AM bike for big blokes. I've currently got a large customer with an FR and despite discussions with CC and mojo we can't get him a coil shock to suit as he needs a 900lb spring and it just wouldn't fit. he's confined to an air shock with huge pressure.ianpinder said:Ok, 160mm is too much travel.
I weigh 150kg so need the frame strength
increasing the stroke reduces the work the shock has to do
In the lowest travel setting the leverage ratio will be less the 2, better then a foes
mikeal nr1 i guess they lengthen the swing arm which comes of the top tube
