    ElCap w/5" Rockers=Love on the rocks!

    I have been on my ElCapitan now for almost 2 years and could not be happier! I got mine w/the 4" rockers but swapped them out to the 5" rockers and am super happy! This is by far the nicest bike I have ever ridden and on the rocks it just sucks em up! Especially when rock crawling! My onlky complaint would be the lack of long travel forks available w/non tapered tubes. I am running a White Bros. Fluid 29 135 and it does pretty good. While not as high zoot as others, it seems to match up pretty good to the 5" rear travel! Anybody else out there running their ElCap w/5" rockers?
    Big, strong, rock crushing, IPA drinking, big hit bike rider!

    Did it do anything for the BB height? When I went from 5" to 6" rockers on my X-5, it really raised the BB.
