    I ordered a custom shock with shorter eye to eye and a shorter stroke. I also reduced the fork travel. I think the bike works better with less travel for me.

    Freeborn supply their ellsworths with offset shock hardware to slacken the angles and lower the bb.

    When fully inflated, my panaracer fire XC's rub on the upper rear. What 650b wheels are you using?

    Short of getting a new wheel, I'll need to switch to a different tire. Any idea which tire is shorter than the panaracer fire XC?

    The fire xc is the smallest of the tires I have and clears with room to spare on my bike. The chain stay area close to the bb is where I find the clearance is a little tight. You must have one of the older (non sst ) frames with the older rear end.
