    Swinger 4-way on Cake??

    Has anyone tried the Manitou 4-way swinger on a 2005 Cake frame?
    What are the likely advantages/disadvantages over the standard 3-way swinger?
    It looks like there shouldn't be any clearance problems but I am interested to know if anyone has tried it or has any thoughts on it.

    Many thanks

    The only difference is the 4-way gives you the ability to adjust how progressive the shock is. There's a socket on the end of the reservoir; turning it in makes the shock more progressive, turning out makes it more linear. If you think this adjustment would be useful, try it out. Personally, I don't see a need for it on a Cake. I'd rather see it on a bike like the Fat Possum instead of the Split.
