    2" stroke on a gemini

    Anybody running this on their Gemini? I have a 2" fox floatR on mine with a Pike up front.
    I calculate the travel at 122.5mm, 131mm and 149mm. The middle 131mm actually feels better than the 149 setting.

    I am thinking of getting a swinger 4way air. What do you think.

    I would not PUSH the float for use on a Gemini. Because a gemini has a relatively high leverage ratio you will still blow through the travel of the float unless you increase the spring rate so much that you lose all plushness & sag. The swinger 4-way has the advantage of increased volume due to the piggyback resevoir and a bottom out adjustment. You can increase the bottom out adjustment, run a lower spring pressure, and a higher platform pressure,to achieve proper sag, good platform, and prevent the shock from blowing through it's travel.
