    What i'd like to see from Ventana

    is a redesigned superlink for the Chamuco/Pantera that acts as a rising rate linkage to drive the shock like the new El Cuervo. Is there enough room there to do this with the current swingarm/front triangle design?

    No complaints about my bike as is, just thinking of a way to make it more betterer.

    I have been looking into that specific scenario and I quite frankly have not been successful in coming up with a configuration that I am happy with that will actually do something to improve the ride of Chamuco. I will let you know if I come up with something though.

    Cool. Tight space to work with there, I can see why you'd have a hard time with it.

    I really like the Z150 on the bike, BTW. 3 lbs. heavier than my Fox but i'm willing to let my legs and lungs suffer for the sake of my back. At first I was using the ETA lockdown on all the climbs but now that i'm used to the altered geometry, I don't touch it anymore. It's nice to have a fork on there that matches the capability of the rear suspension.

    How about a 1.5 HT so we can use a 6" Sherman breakout?
