    Todd: 2.0" stroke on Mk III?

    Todd, is those 2" stroke shocks I see on the MK III bikes?

    Does the front end geometry remain the same as the current Hollowpoints? (i.e. will a 5" fork handle the same on an '05 as on an '04?)

    Hay Nate,

    The MKIII uses a custom tuned 2" stroke 5th element air shock in back. The shocks are tuned to give the bike a lively feel, and they let the dw-link suspension do all the work when you are climbing and sprinting. The bikes are rockets!

    With a 5" fork, the head angle is 70 degrees, so the same as the 04, but BB drop and chainstays have been refined a little. Its a sweet feeling bike for sure.

    Later
