    Looking to borrow a 7.0 x 2.0 rear shock for a test

    Anyone in the Denver area have a 7.0 x 2.0 rear shock I could borrow for a week or so? I'll be testing it on my Jet 9 to see if I can increase the rear travel without negative consequences on Geometry. Before we have a debate on geometry and buying a new bike vs adapting a current one. Understand that I run a 120mm fork on this bike, Niner recommends 80-100mm and I am a confident bike handler.
