    Meta 5.5 and offset bushings.

    Anyone every set theirs up with offset shock hardware?

    I was in the market for a trailbike frame and picked up a Meta off of Huck N Roll just prior to the holidays for a steal. They were $599 with free shipping and were running a $60 coupon for any order over $300 at the time.
    The geo wasn't exactly what I was looking for. But a brand new frame for $539 shipped? I'll take it.
    Ordered the hardware off of the ebay supplier in Poland. Arrived and looks good. Haven't had the chance to put it on yet.
    Hoping to get the HA to slack out by about a degree and get a tiny bit of BB drop.

    Can't wait to then get it out on the trails to see how it feels.

    BB is pretty low anyway when sagged. Rides pretty well with a 150mm fork on the front. Static at 67.5 but I would say 67 or less sagged. You can also put a 200 x 56 shock if you want to run even more sag and 10mm more travel on the rear. An RT3 low tune large air can allows you to squeeze out more travel than RP2 or RP23.

    The other option is to put a 650b wheel on the front and you don't need to slack it out.
