    Reign 2 medium with 2.25 rear shock?

    Anyone fit a 2.25" rear shock to a medium 2011 reign 2? I've seen loads of posts of Reigns with a 2.25 but a couple with clearance problems on mediums frames. I'm considering a Monarch plus, I know I might have to move the front drl up to clear the linkage but its the tyre/s.post clearance I'm worried about.

    I've changed both my 05, & 08 standard reigns shocks to 2.25 piston travel with no issues other than possible contact to the front derailleur/lower link on the 05 only in granny in front at full shock compression. That's a gear combo shouldn't be in anyhow when plowing downhill.
    my 08 has a slight cutout on the bottom link that would probably not be an issue as the 05.
    My frames are large, but I can't see how frame size would make a difference?
