    Increasing travel on an Intense Uzi SL?

    Are there any linkage plates I can buy that would allow me to increase the travel of my Intense Uzi SL? I've already emailed BETD and they could only suggest that I buy a longer stroke shock. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

    I wouldn't recommend it...

    ...the SL is really a long travel XC bike. You would have to replace the linkage plates and then get a longer shock. Still, I wouldn't recommend it, the frame is designed/built around the shock and travel that are made for it.

    Either:

    - Sell your SL and buy an SLX or their new VPP 5.5.

    - Go to the "Let's talk about Shocks" forum and page King Rexford. He put an SL rear on a Tracer. Even though that's not what you want, he may be able to offer some advice (these frames are somewhat similiar) and he may be able to hook you up with someone at Intense.

    - You might also want to see if an SLX rear will fit this bike.
