    straros mx6

    just wanting to know if any one has extended the travel of these forks to 7"?
    I know it can be done and i'm just not sure how you go about it,
    I was looking at getting spaces made up to screw on to the bottom of the spring cartridges
    and making these 1" between the threads any feed back on this would be appriciated

    no, it can't be done because of the bushings. I extended mine slightly, not for additional travel but for additional height, but the same things remain in both cases: it's not possible to increase it an inch because of the cartridge length and the bushings.
    I know in my heart that Ellsworth bikes are more durable by as much as double. AND they are all lighter...Tony Ellsworth
