    The 24" rear wheel is a bit puzzling, but I've seen similar setups with 26" wheels on the older Bullits (the ones you weren't even supposed to use a DC fork on), and it was fine. I used to ride with 2 guys that slapped Shivers on, and it seemed to suit them well.

    This setup does look pretty raked though.

    It needs a seatbelt.

    Shiver ahoy !!! Many guys in San Diego sport the Shiver on Bullits. But I never seen it with a 24 inch wheeel

    I haven't been to pinkbike in a while, but those forums used to be all about hucking off mommy and daddy's garage to flat, and this set-up for the Bullitt is probably pretty good for doing that.

    That 24" rear wheel isn't helping things either.

    adjustable angles

    couple of my bro's used to ride bullit's with shivers. bullits rule. never seen one with a 24" wheel though, it probably slackens things a degree or two. the bullit has an adjustable head tube angle. check those two bolts in front of the rear shock. there's a slotted shock attachement. you can loosen the two bolts and slide the shock attachement back, lifting the bottom bracket and steepening the angles.
