    Motolite in 100mm mode - geometry?

    Hi all,

    I have a 2007 Motolite and am curious whether the geometry changes at all if it's run in 100mm moe as oposed to 130mm.

    Thanks

    the rear travel setting change? no, same geo. the sta/hta gets steeper as you drop the front fork down to 100mm. that being said, you will need to educe the psi on the rear shock if you move to the shorter travel setting as the leverage ratio drops. i might be able to dig up a pdf of the geo chart if you want to pm me your email.

    Cheers, I have a chart somewhere myself, I was just curious. Your point about the need to reduce pressure seems crrect though, as in 100mm the suspension does feel a lot tauter. Perhaps that's why it seems to pedal better in this setting.
