    Range B-3 Lower Shock Mount

    So the 2013 Range B-3 lower shock mount was strangely different than the B-2 and 2014 model year Range alloy.

    Does this negatively affect the frame in any way? Less strong? Different geometry?

    Thay have slackened the head angle. From 66.5 to 66 (It took them a while to change it on their webpage).

    If you look at the 2013 B-3 in some pictures, you'll notice the lower shock mount is facing the other direction than on B-2s of 2013.

    Range B-3 Lower Shock Mount

    Fyi the xs frame does not fit any shock with a piggyback. Perhaps the different mount allows for it to clear certain shocks?
