    New question here. Point of maximum chain growth on CVA suspension?

    On my 2012 RIP 9, I let the air out my shock, cycled the suspension, and measured the distance between the rear dropout and the bottom bracket. I got the longest measurements when the suspension was fully extended. (i.e. as if there is no weight on the bike). I thought the point of maximum chain growth on full suspension bikes is usually when the suspension is fully compressed. Am I doing this wrong, or is that just the way it is with the CVA design?

    There really are not many designs anymore that are longest at full travel. The chain growth would make the bike ride poorly in most cases.
