    A boxxer and no DHX 5.0 against the 66RC and DHX 5.0 on my baby??? No contest...because, after all, everyone knows...everytime a boxxer is built, God kills a kitten.

    P.S. CoilerMad, I've got an aftermarket RockShox crown for that Boxxer. SRAM sent it to our club as part of a schwag package...but no one in our club has a boxxer. You email me your mailing address and it's yours (if I can find it in the mess in my basement). Deal?? terry at pambamtb dot org

    sorry....I don't see the word "coiler" on that frame anywhere. Close, but close only counts in horseshoes, handgrenades, and atom bombs.

    Are you running a 24inch rear tire for it to work in the 7 inch travel position? And did you get the BETD link directly from BETD?
    Also, how the does the linkage make the bike feel compared to stock? Thanks.

    no-pistons, i'm still running the 26 on both ends, so far there's been no trouble. the plates were ordered direct from betd for £100 plus £8 for P+P. the plates really work well, but depending on yer weight youll probably need a stiffer spring. i was lucky, im only 9 stone so im still running the shock as it was before. the linkage is really smooth and plush, makes you fall in love with the bike (if you havent already)...

    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    It is a 2.125 stroke which is 1/8 inch longer than stock. If my math is correct it gives me just under a half inch increase in travel. Thus far I've had no contact issues and it hasn't sacrificed ride quality.

    Cool, do you feel any difference from stock?

    Yes and no. I upgraded from the stock Vanilla R to the RC. Before I was running the shock in the progressive position to control bottoming, but now I run it in the liniar hole and am able to control bottoming with the compression adjustment. It feels alot better when trail riding because I put the compression 2 clicks from the lowest setting for a plusher ride. And when I am jumping or hucking I put the compression about 6-8 clicks from the lowest setting to help control bottoming.

    Outside of that I feel absolutly no difference in ride quallity. I deffinitly would go this route again over purchasing a set of aftermarket rocker plates because you are not only increasing your travel, but you can also increase the quality of your travel by upgrading your shock.

    Side note- The 2.125 shock stroke looks like the longest stroke I could put on my bike. The shock bottoms just before my swing arm makes contact with my front derailure. If you were wunning a single ring setup, you may be able to go longer, but then you may run into contact issues with the seat tube. For what its worth, the shock I got came of an old santa cruz super 8.

    Another side note- If your looking into increasing your rear travel, look into 04 stinky plates or 05 coiler plates. Looks to me that the 05 and 04 coiler frames are identical with the exception of longer plates on the 05. The plates are around $100 strait from Kona which is less than half of what BETD or Dangerboy would charge.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'm always looking to modify my bike, so it's interesting to see what others have done with their Coilers.
