    Intense Spider Comp rear shock

    Hi Guys

    I've been riding my Spider Comp for a few weeks and loving it. XO with Wolftooth direct mount 1x10, Fox Float 140mm, KS LEV-Ti dropper and Easton EA90xc wheels.

    I notice my rear shock is mount on the lower hole of the rear pivot. I was wondering what would be the changes in geometry/ride/travel if I would mount it in the upper hole?

    No changes in geometry, the upper hole will add about .5" of travel (top 5", bottom 4.5"). You will have to set your sag when you change shock positions. I think with the fork you have, it will balance the bike out better. I put mine in the 5" setting and haven't moved it since.

    I'm curious what yours weighs in at? I'm about 27 lbs (unofficially) with 1x10 XT, 130mm 32 Fox Float, thompson stem/seatpost, Black Flag expert wheels, and Schwalbe Nobby Nic/Rocket Ron F/R.

    Thanks I'll try the upper hole and see if I like it better this way.

    I don't have a proper bike-scale so for what it's worth I'm at 28,2 pounds, large frame. I'm running Ardent 2.4 front and rear so not the lightest tire. It's the lightest bike I have own (coming from a 26" 32 pounds Trek Fuel Ex8) also the one with most travel so I can't complain: this bike feels amazing to me!!
