    Anybody running 7.5" i2i shock on 08 Reign?

    This possibility has been mentioned before and I don't recall if anybody actually has tried it.
    I want to run a 7.5" i2i on the 08' Reign. This will lower the BB and slack the bike a bit.
    Acadian mentioned it would probably interfere with the derailleur but I have read that other owners have put 7.875 x 2.25" shocks to get more travel. That extra .7" linkage movement at the axle is almost identical to what the 7.5/2.0 shock would do as well at bottom out.

    So my real question is, Has anybody run the 7.5 x 2.0" shock on a 08' Reign and if so, were there any clearance issues?

    I was also thinking about doing this on an 08 X1. I've thought about the 2" stroke bottoming more or less in the same location too, pivot/derailleur clearance- and I'd have to agree with you that it should work. Post it up if you end up putting one on. Also- are you talking about plain reign or reign x? Thanks
