I'm looking at a "top fuel" 9.8 2010.
As I'm looking at rear shocks I realize I know nothing. On fox's website, they aren't sub classified by travel, like forks, and the air shocks only go from 1.5-3 in terms of travel.
So I guess I have a couple of questions.
1) Are these numbers (1.5-3) inches? Or what? Because 3 inches isn't even 100mm. I guess I always assumed the rear travel matched whatever was on the front. Is that not the case?
2) Can I put more travel on the rear of this bike? So I get something that feels more like a remedy than a top fuel? Would it make a huge difference? If so, what are my options?
3) Lastly, the fork was upgraded to a talas 36. I've heard changing the fork size drastically puts stress on the headtube. Is this true? Would it actually snap if I ran 40 more mm that the bike was designed for?
Listing. Super sexy.
