    BMC Fourstroke Trail Conversion?

    Has anyone made the switch from 4" to 5" travel? Would you do it all over again if you could go back in time?

    Also, where did you purchase the kit (I can't find any information on the internet regarding the conversion kit, price, where to buy, etc.)...

    I appreciate any replies as I am seriously considering making the move. It's much cheaper than going out and buying a Turner Spot I love the bike as is but feel it might not be enough for the abuse I want to give it. I wonder what kind of drops it can handle with the 5" suspension???

    Not the same beast, but you might want to search this through Ventana El Salt. as well. Another 4" rig that many opt to run with a 5" rocker, myself included. A quick compairison of specs between the Fourstroke and Salt. may help sort out some concerns and shine light on items to further consider.
    I figure the odds be fifty-fifty.
