    Enduro geometry setting

    I have a 2nd hand 05 Enduro frame. I have been informed that its has the slack geometry setting option fitted

    How do I check that it does indeed have the slack option fitted.

    thanks

    Check out your frame where the shock bolts up to main part of the frame. You will see a piece like i have pictured below. If it says on it "348mm BB height/ 68.5 head angle (low BB)" on it, you have the slack on in there. If it says "high bb" with different numbers on it, then you have the shock shuttle on it. If have the high one, and you need the low one, i have one here from my old enduro.

    have you got a basic enduro frame or an enduro sx trail ?
    and does the shuttle come in two parts or is it one piece of metal?

    Theres no writing on it at all? Thats weird. I guess the next thing to do is measure you bottom bracket height, if it s 348mm, then you have the low/slack shock shuttle on yours, if its higher, then you have the high shuttle on.

    if you have the low bb shuttle, it means you have a slacker head angle which makes turning alot less twitchy but also slightly slower as the wheelbase is longer, also obviously your cranks will be closer to the ground. it's a better set up for long downhills but not the better set up for uphill climbs and general messing around.
    i use my high bb shuttle pretty much all the time and the only time i'd use the low B.B. is on an uplift or something with alot of down

    yeah, it sounds like you want to be running the high bb shuttle
