    GVS_NZ, shorter shock on MV, Thanks for the tip

    So yeah, 5mm shorter at the eyes dropped the BB 13mm and kicked the HA out enough to detect DH improvement. Although 5mm shorter, I've yet to use the full travel of the shock. BTW, OE shock off a Trek.

    I feel lucky that I found a lightly used 7.25"x1.75" RP23. Not so common a size.

    Anyway, perfect tweak for the 650b conversion.

    I forgot about that. From memory useful travel was about the same as you didn't usually get to use the last 1/4" of the 7.5 x 2. Nice geometry change is the big plus.
