    Converting 130mm Enduro to 150mm?

    A couple of recent posts have suggested that changing rear shocks on the 130mm Enduro frames can kick the travel out to 6 inches. This sounds good. But, I'd like to hear more about this before I do it myself. Does doing this screw with the BB height and geometry? By flipping the link to the "slack" position, I'd assume that'd compensate a little for running the longer 7.875 x 2.25 coil shocks, as described by some people here. But, how's it really work? And, what fork do you run up front? I recently got a FSR 120, which doesn't descend as well as my Enduro 130, and I'm curious about whether or not modifying my 130 could, in fact, create a 6-and-6 bike that's on par with the current model Enduros. Who's done this? What can you tell me?

    Unless I'm mistaken the 130 and the 150 Enduros use different frames........

    I'll know in a few days. I have a 7.875 x 2.25 vanilla on my '02 Enduro and I have a 150mm fork on the way.

    Works great...

    I've had a 7.875" x 2.25" shock on my '03 for a couple of years. It gets the BB up to a reasonable height (about 14"), gives it about 148mm travel. With a '05 Z1 up front, the head angle is about 69 degrees. Perfect for a 150mm front and rear bike.
