    Hey Tim, is that silver San An the one you told me you modified to have some monster travel at one point in time ?

    No, I had both my '98 black and raw finish '00 San Andreas's back before I started working for MC. I messed around with my current red '03 San Andreas, using different mounts, a 9.5" rear shock and an '03 Monster T. I highly recommend against anyone trying this since it rode horribly and is not designed for that type of riding anyway.

    Do you mean a 9.5" eye to eye shock or rear wheel travel after your hot rodding job?
    I'm trying to visualise this "Franken Bike" you created.

    Later, Eric.

    Just so you know; I have no intention of repeating the experiment.

    I said "9.5" rear shock", meaning the rear shock measures nine and a half inches. The rear travel also measured about 9.5" based on the shock's three inch stroke and the 3.1 to 1 leverage ratio.

    A bike friend of mine had probably the same setup a few years ago, a Super Monster T with a shock to "match"
    He mentionend that it rode silly, and i also rode a few feet on it, you almost had to use a ladder to get on, and the riding is horrible indeed.
    He broke his frame during a 10ft drop that same day.

    I had to use many different mounts and bits from different frames to get that long rear shock to fit, I doubt anyone else has gone to the trouble and expense. I only had it together like that to see if it was possible, then quickly took it apart. At the same time, I had my 5" Z1 on the front of my 9.5. Now that was a weird set-up.

    The drop isn't what broke that frame. Bolting a 14lb 12" travel fork to a 6lb frame desinged around a 3" to 6" fork is definitely what killed that frame.

    Remember, there was DH ten and fifteen years ago, but it was much different from the DH of today. The San Andreas is not a modern style DH frame.

    I thought you probably meant what you said, but my brain was having trouble imagining a 9.5" shock mounted in a San Andreas.

    I've got to make me a shim for my San An and try that.

    He had that setup for a few months, I think he had that shock and test fitted it and made one set of shockmounts to get it as far up to the frontseattube as possible.
    About the broken frame, it sure was due to the frontfork, he knew that too.

    That looks so much like the East Bay Regional Park District, back home in the San Francisco Bay Area, that its making me homesick.
    Where was that photo taken?

    You need a 2001 or earlier main frame with the VPS front shock mount. The 2002 (and newer) uses a cartridge bearing main pivot and would not work with your swingarm.

    Hope this helps.

    Are there passes 8000 ft above sea level in the park? Pictures are from Tien-Shan mountains (Cental Asia, Kazakhstan)

    No, nothing that high. We had rolling hills no higher than 2500 ft. in the East Bay park system. What is amazing, is the resembalence in the photos, to the open tree less areas of the East Bay Parks.
    The color of the grass, dirt on the road and rocks, combined with the way the terrain is laid out, looks like parts of California's foothill areas.

    Later, Eric.
