I am loving the idea of the low bb if it will work....
Maybe if you ran a short stroke shock like a 2.25". There has been cases of taller tires hitting the seatube on bottom out with 26" wheels. But it is intriguing, I agree.
some shocks can be fitted with internal "bumpers" to limit travel. not sure if the Monarch is one of them, having never taken one apart. sounds like a question for LoCo or any suspension tuning place.
I think it'd hit the chainstay yoke before you could even get it out of the stand.

Would you mind terribly measuring it from the exact center of dropout (using a knitting needle or some such) to the yoke?
I would appreciate it greatly.
Measured it last year and you're restricted to a 2.0- 2.1...
13.7" if I remember correct
Give it time. I think we are wearing Brant down to the idea.
