    El Guapo V.2 Pivot points

    When I bought my frame 2nd hand, I assumed that the two mount positions for the rear suspension were for different rear shock. But on the titus website I've just seen that on the V3 the different points make the travel either more linear or more progressive. If thats true for the V2 then does anybody use the front position?

    It's a historical titus thing, and personally I only ever ride in the front position.

    Mines in the back position and looking in the gallery so are most others. Why do you prefer the front position?

    Just love the progression and the way it sits in the travel.

    I ride with my seat more down than up. YMMV.

    So basically front for DH runs, back for XC? I'll give it a go and see what it feels like.

    I took it for a long ride yesterday in the forward position and put it through it paces. I have to agree with you, it feels much better!

    Next thing is to get the slackset headset on it.
