    Nice!

    What model of rockshox is this exactly? I did not get if you took just the spring form a Lobo shock or the lobo rear shock anda added the trunnion.

    Homegrown Straight 6

    Here is my Homegrown 4B with a longer shock as discussed in the other thread.

    Picked up the shock body cheap on ebay, nice to have a rebound adjuster too as the current shock was from the bottom of the line 99 4banger. The spring turned out to be hard to get, I ended up buying a nos rear shock for a GT Lobo for $21 as the spring was close to what I wanted. Found that funny as I used to have one of those GT's back in the day.

    I rushed the shock swap which now has me annoyed, wanted to measure the BB height before and after the swap. As you can see in the pics I had just enough threads for the Trunion to mount, but had to crank on a bunch of preload to make it work. In the end the new shock is 6mm longer eye to trunion, I figure about 1/2 degree steeper head tube angle.

    I just used the spring from the Lobo shock. You can see from the attached photo that it would never work on the 4B, it is a pull shock. Also added a pic of my spare shocks too.

    There is nothing on the shock to show which model it is, but I would say it is a Coupe Deluxe as it has rebound adjustment only. And 2" stroke of course.

    Currently changing the brakes too so will probably sell one of my 22mm Hayes sometime soon.
