    Hey, I've got an M06 too, what's the deal with "offset bushing"? Doesn't the bridge on seatstays limit the travel? I saw this mentioned in the early days when the frame was new.

    Really all the offset bushings do is just slacken things out. I wanted the HA to be around 67 degrees. The biggest negative is the slack seat tube because of the offset bushings. It really makes the front end light on climbs which is a huge bummer. As far as reduced travel that doesn't seem to be the case. Frankly, Im not sure how much travel the M06 should have but its around 100mm, maybe around 110-115 mm. FYI I have a pretty much new Cane Creek Inline IL shock for this frame. If interested PM me
