    2" stroke shock on 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.

    it seems to me that you are not using the gemini for what it's meant for. I just sold my Gemini 3000 because i wanted something lighter. I bought a prophet, maybe you should check that out too. i may be wrong when i judged your riding style, but def. check out the prophet.

    I actually biult it up to be like a prophet. I got a brand new frame and rear shock for $1000 and built it up with parts from my previous ride. I now have the same parts spec as a prohet MX2 and it cost me 1/2 the price.

    makes sense. then, just get a normal 2.25 stroke and keep it on the 150 setting, unless that's too much than you want.

    My ride comes in at 32-34lb depending on tire choices. I am sure that I could get it down to 30 or so, and still be strong. I use my Gemini as a LT trailbike. Just what I wanted.

    Right you are.

    An Air shock came stock on my Gemini 1000 (2003) It was a 2" stroke model. Your numbers are close. It seemed to me that I had a 13% travel increase across the board going to the 2.25" 5th coil.

    Have you thought about PUSHing your Float?

    Man, I used my Gemini for a 24 hr team event a couple of years ago. I can also take it to the chairlift. What an awesome frame. I do not care what anyone says.
