I bought a '09 Perp 1 in the fall, basically in new condition.

There are two recommend positions for the rear shock set up 180 and 200. There Are 2 holes for the top tube adjustment front for 200 and rear for 180.

The top tube piviot axle fits perfect in the 200 mm position but the axel won't fit into the rear 180mm position. Is there something I'm missing, the paint can't be that thick???
