I'm sure those pivots are where they are for a reason. If you changed the linkage it wouldn't be a DW link any longer, and probably wouldn't pedal or brake as well.

I figure that with my 888rc2x on a 7point running a zero stack HS it would have around a 66.5 degree HA and the BB would be around 14.75". While, that BB may be a little high for some, I think that's about perfect.

Pretty sure you are SOL on this one. The only 'different' links that I am aware of from IH, are the new ones for the sunday that allow more shock options and have a different shock mount set up. Never heard of a geometry change for any of the IH bikes.

Smaller back tire, more shock sag, or a shorter shock are the only way that I can think of to drop the rear end.

It is a 'FR' and thus does not have a low bb, or a very slack head angle....a 7 point 'DH' would be cool though.. I tend to prefer DH type geo on all of my bikes, and have modded several (DHR, 6-pack) to get more of what I want.
