    need a quick answer please- Tallboy lower link

    Took apart my bike yesterday and can't find the sheet I wrote this on.
    The lower link looks symmetrical, but just in case can someone look at theirs and tell me when looking at the bike upside down which end goes toward the front.

    Thanks alot

    on my Blur LTc, it wont go in the wrong direction. there is a little rubber bumper on the top that prevents it from going on incorrectly. we'd have to see the top probably to tell for sure, but just try to put it on both ways and see if one doesnt work....

    Ir goes in either way. The reason I'm showing the bottom is that's what you can see easily and the bracing that forms the X isn't symmetrical so just flipping the bike over someone should be able to say the wider or narrow V goes toward the front.

    I just checked my Tallboy and assuming mine is assembled correctly: In your picture the top is towards the front (connected to the front triangle).

    Hey TwoTone, I just looked at my TallboyC and It is the wider V that goes to the frt.
