    Longer shock on a Supreme?

    Alright, A Supreme DH has a longer shock than the ordinary Supreme, but what if you want to upgrade the Van R or the Roco R of the existing Supreme/ Supreme Mini-DH? Can you put a longer shock? Will it put the geo out of wack? And what is the stock length of the shock of teh Supreme DH? (strangely not listed on the Commencal website...)

    If you're trying to make the supreme more like the supreme DH it would be awfully tough, if not impossible. Not only does the Supreme have a steeper head angle, but the pivot point is also a little different. The longer shock would only make things worse by raising the bottom bracket height and make the head angle steeper.

    I'm not sure they'd fit, but you might be able to fit the links from the Supreme DH on the Supreme. Before you buy a shock I'd look into that first.
