    Why bother putting a Jekyll swingarm on a Super V to make an Uber V?.....

    Seems like the Jekyll frame naturally accepts a longer rear shock then a Super V and the Jekyll already has the "hot" swingarm. Is there better geometry in a Super V then a Jekyll frame?....

    I think the main advantage is that there's a lot more shock options available for the Super V frame than for the Jekyll (with its 'collar-mount' shock).

    Beat any dead horses lately?

    In addition to the previous answer, it sure made sense when I wanted to upgrade the super v that I already owned.
