    2.75 shock stroke change to 2.5 stroke

    Hey I have a 2005 Norco Shore with 8.4in of travel setting and 7.2in of travel setting. The bike came with a 8.75 x 2.75 stroke shock. When I sent the shock for warrantee I borrowed a 8.5 x 2.5 stroke shock. I like the geometry better with the shorter shock.

    My question is, what is my Rear Wheel Travel with the smaller 8.5 x 2.5 shock????

    Thanks

    Cross multiplication.

    I have a 8.5 x 2.5 5th for sale if you need a shock.
