    Mojo SL shock length/stroke

    I see from the website that the shock length says 7.875 and stroke 2.00.

    This equates to 200mm/50.1mm - roughly.

    Now the DT shock in 200mm is a 55mm stroke, if I want to buy a RP23(as a spare/alternate) I have the option of 200x50 or 200x57, which one should I get (which is supplied by Ibis?).

    What difference would it make, to me i guess the 57mm would give more travel but does the frame allow this?

    Thanks

    2 inch is the maximum stroke without the tire hitting the back of the seat tube.

    But the DT as supplied by Ibis is 55mm = 2.16" - So does it make that much difference?

    55mm = 2.16"

    57mm = 2.25"

    2" = 50.1mm (all approx)

    So does it make much difference, as the supplied RP23 and DT from Ibis have different strokes anyway?

    I just need to know which RP23 to get as a spare from the UK supplier (Mojo - strangely)

    Hans at Ibis has already stated that they get DT shocks with a 50mm stroke.

    The DT Swiss Carbon is a 200/50 and is a special spec for Ibis, if you look on the latest versions of the DT Swiss shock on the right hand side up by the rebound adjuster it even states 'Ibis 200/50', yes the normal generic DT Swiss Carbon is 200/55, trust me, I have tested it and the most I have been able to get out of the shock is 1 15/16" so far, still breaking it in though

    Edited: forgot to remove some extra info
