to lower the rear or not- and how?
« on: October 09, 2018, 08:42:02 pm »

Hello

I am getting ready to buy a Penske rear shock from Traxxions. I am a bit inseam challenged and thought about having the shock built with 1 inch shorter spring.


I guess i'm looking at 3 options, lower the connie via dogbones, lower via the new shock or leave aloneā€¦

I have lowered previous bikes via dogbones and could not perceive a difference in handling.

Experiences appreciated.

What shock did you buy, if its the double clicker, you can order it so the ride height can go up or down.

Thanks Gixerhp.. I have been working with Dan and it is the double 8983.

He actually presented the question to me - without mentioning the adjustablilty you speak of.

I will check with him.
