    Scythe Geometry???

    I could not understand what is the bb height of the Scythe frame if i have 180 mm fork and 7 inch rear suspension.
    And what will be with 200mm at front and 8 inch rear suspention.

    Any one can help?

    Another question, can I put to chain rings in front so i could pedal with it? how does it pedal in general...currently I have wildcard and love it but i want more suspension.

    Thanks.

    It's all there in the geometry chart on the Banshee website. There are two settings for each of the combos you'd like to try out
    and yes, it is front-derailleur compatible. It uses a top pull, high 34.9mm diameter clamp.

    0.3" between the 7" settings and 0.6" between the 7" and 6.4" setting.

    The fork is the same but the rear if it is 7 inch then it is 7 inch, what do they mean 6.4 or 7.3, how does that change? move of a bolt?
    So I can ride the Scythe with 6.4 rear travel? 7.3? and 8?

    The chart on the right is if you decide to use a shorter shock.

    Left chart: 8.75x2.75
    Right Chart: 8.5x2.5
